who knew you could see recent movies on the way to Yosemite! this movie theater is just so cute - several rooms for movies, but they may not actually be bigger than your own TV room at home - it's so much fun - no worries about crowds or finding a good seat! we loved it.

We saw The Miracle Worker, performance about the life of Helen Keller and the girl who taught her to communicate. Very enjoyable and learned a lot about Helen Keller. Well worth the visit.

Enjoy popcorn and high melodrama in this great little theater. The whole family can enjoy booing the villain and cheering the heroine.

We attended the final showing of Jack the Ripper as our first visit to the theater. Our tickets were $10.00, how do you beat that? The performance was really really good, the stage settings and costumes very professional.

I only attend GCT in October, when they present "scary" or spooky-themed melodramas. For several years, there was an absence of such plays, as I suppose someone in charge did not care for such fare. (?) Anyway, I attended the latest presentation of Jack the Ripper and was the first one seated so got prime viewing. Was disappointed they no... More

sometimes the shows are really good of amateur productions. The last one we saw was AWFUL, so it just depends. Cost is reasonable and don't expect luxury. There is a snack bar for intermission. It is self supporting, so lending your support is welcomed.

We enjoy local productions and supporting our local artists! It is a fun atmosphere with food and drinks at reasonable prices. We saw "The Secret Garden" and look forward to the next "family-friendly" production.
