This theater is just gorgeous! Find a reason to visit the theater and marvel at the ornate decor that has been restored to like new condition. The seats are comfortable and the venue is completely modernized and restored. It will make you wonder why modern architecture is so plain by comparison...
This refurbished downtown theatre has been beautifully restored. The acoustics were excellent. Accessible by car and light rail.
Always seeking a reason to visit. Of note is the delightful organ in the lobby; at Christmas, a very good organist serenades the patrons with Christmas carols. The hall is tasteful, and not overdone as was the custom for the movie houses of the day. Great venue!!!
