Love this place but it can sometimes be a little bit cold in the winter so you just have to keep your coat on.

There might olnly be one showing per night - maybe 2 on the weekends but it's a beautiful old theatre with classice organ playing on Saturday nights. Easy to get to, plenty of parking and you can grab a bite to eat in quite a few restaurants within walking distance before the movie.

This is a beautiful classic oldtime movie theater that hasn't been chopped into 3, 4, or 5 theaters. It's got all the trappings of a 1920's movie palace including a pipe organ that they play before the main shows on Fri and Sat I believe. It's been updated to digital and dolby so you can see first run movies in... More

This theater is awesome. When we first walked in to see a movie a couple years ago we were taken aback by how beautiful it is inside. The seats, while not uncomfortable don't compare to big theaters but thats a small price to pay for the ambiance. We even have had the pleasure of listening to the Wurlitzer organ playing... More

I love this movie theatre. It is a wonderfully restored Art Deco theatre, one of only a handful of historical theaters in the country. They have an organ player before the Saturday evening show - fabulous! A huge theatre with 1,000 seats so it never sells out. Makes movie going an experience. The downsides: it's missing modern conveniences like reclining... More
