The only theater left with one gigantic screen, while others have been turned into multiplexes -- and this even has a balcony, where I think audiences get the best view. It's a great old-time theater, with a history of grand openings of first-run films.

Wouldn't know it was there but very accessible and great nearby options for dinner before or good concession options in house. Bathroom is a bit out of the way, so go before the show.

While not one of the old "glamour" cinemas, the Uptown is an excellent place to experience an old-school viewing of film. View first-run movies on a HUGE screen, either from not-terribly comfortable orchestra or balcony seating. Avg-good concessions are available.
