This theatre is incredible! It was such a joy from start to finish...the little box office with the funny & sweet cashier! The friendly concession folks who happily served up our very reasonably priced popcorn! The walk into the actual theatre made us gasp... Stars on the ceilings glowing... Beautiful red curtains... Glory of years gone by... We saw woody... More

Wonderful volunteer staff, always smiling. Great films, and fabulous ambiance! The most comfortable theatre seats you ever sit in. Great visibility, great everything! The FilmFest alone is worth making the trip to Traverse if you haven't attended yet.

Think about how many movies you see a year. What if you had a theatre right downtown that is considered one of the greatest small theatres in the world, with a unique selection of great films, affordable ticket prices and cheep awesome popcorn. It's beautiful and the seats are very comfortable, run by volunteers. We in TC are truly blessed... More

Decor and atmosphere are wonderful, and real big screen. We saw the US vs. Germany for free. Looking forward to seeing a movie there on our next trip.

There are good things, no great things about a small town cinema. The good things are the friendly helpful staff that work the ticket booth and small concession stand. The "bad" things are some of the facilities are pretty small. We just saw the 100 foot Journey. A great movie. We could hear and see the screen very well. But... More

This theatre is special. It has maintained its integrity throughout time. Volunteers work so the price is cheap. It is an awesome experience for anyone. After a day at the beach catch a movie, it is worth it.

I so enjoyed screening films here during the Travers City Film Festival: new, big, comfortable seats and an excellent sound and projection system make for a memorable viewing experience.
