Seats are about $1 more than other theaters but absolutely worth the price. Seats are very comfortable, leather, wide, with plenty of space. Bar downstairs to enjoy a glass of wine or a drink either before or after the show. Seats are reserved so get their early or order online.

What a great place. It's a wonderful small theater with good views from everywhere. It's clean and comfortable. I was with three friends to see a play and had never been there before. I was very pleasantly surprised. Will happily go again.

Great place to see a play. Small enough that every seat is a good seat. Good actors too. They even have a full bar in lobby area.

They have films that many other cinemas don't show. The theatre is comfortable and the popcorn is very good.

Went here this past weekend and while it is a smaller theater, it was nice to not be part of the huge crowds. No issues with seating or sound. The only complaint I had is that concessions shut down half way thru our movie (the late show) and we couldn't get a soda!
