Giant is a unique experience for coffee and film buffs in the heart of film-obsessed Wilmington. Located next to the famed EUE Screen Gem studios, and featuring meeting rooms and an on-site movie theater that plays documentaries and arthouse films that are difficult, if not impossible, to see anywhere else, this cool coffee shop, café and all-around film buff hang-out is a unique new take on the everyday coffee shop or meeting experience.

The interior features ample quiet spaces for groups to meet and discuss film over a hot brew or two, as well as an adjacent theater that shows both locally made independent films and first-run theatrical releases. A number of workshops and classes are held on the premises due to this creative environment, and everyday visitors can enjoy the overall experience with a cup of Organic Chemex brewed coffee, vegan and organix treats, or even a fresh organix sandwich or salad that’s made with local ingredients whenever possible. Local filmmakers and industry professionals are welcome, as well as the general public, which makes it a unique spot to catch a glimpse into the minds of the local movie making scene. With good eats and plenty of community, Giant is a fine destination for visitors to enjoy a cup of coffee or snack in the heart of artful Wilmington.
