This gem of a movie theater is in the Longfellow neighborhood. A throwback from the 40's, it is an amazing experience. The theater lobby has the feel and decor of the 40's, but the theater seating is all current and comfy. They show movies that have already made the rounds at the big theaters. And in the summertime they have... More

$2 afternoon shows and $3 evening plus $2 popcorn! Cant go wrong. Great way to see a movie if you're looking for an air conditioned (or heated ) break.

This Art Deco theater has retained the character of its mid-60's decor. And the prices are wonderfully low while the pop corn, also bargained priced, is high quality. Watching a second run feature is a treat in this gorgeous theater. Not to be missed.

I love coming here to see movies that have just made it out of the big theaters without the big prices. The place is beautiful. The concessions are reasonably priced. Sit in the lower seats if you want an armrest that goes up between the seats. I come here very often.

Saturday night with out of town friend. Welcome diversion from suburban multiplex. Packed theater with enthusiastic audience. Great popcorn. Wine bar across street great for debriefing. Neighborhood gem!

Cute little retro theater with cheap prices and fresh popcorn. Great place for a date night. Check out the wine bar across the street and then catch a movie.

We love this theater! It is such a great place to come and enjoy a movie with the community. It's literally big enough to hold the whole neighborhood! Great popcorn with REAL BUTTER, and great prices!

Tastefully done with accuracy and subtley, this marvelous theater was a delightful step back into a golden age of movie-going - 1950s and 60s. One big, attractive, clean viewing area! No subdivided cineplex. The return of the communal sense of attending a movie. The improvement upon the era - updated sound and optional beverage holders with the comfy seats. Only... More

Discovered this gem when looking for a place to go for Valentine's Day. Went and enjoyed a movie with my wife and went back a couple weeks later for a movie with the whole family. Love the atmosphere, the popcorn, and of course the prices are amazing. Let's us get out and enjoy a movie in the theater without breaking... More
