Even before the movie starts, one feels transported here: The authentic Art Deco furnishings are well-maintained rather than run-down, while such inimitable touches as the faux-gold water fountain are enough to conjure filmgoing memories from childhood. And as the site of Asian Media Access's venerable Cinema With Passion series--or, on a good week, an exclusive second-run screening of a period film like Big Night or Lone Star--the Riverview has the repertoire (and the real butter) to extend its time-trip vibe even further. All this for the low, low price of $1.75!
