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

very special on the wk end when the organ is played....took my kids and now my grandkids to this theatre and it left a lasting memory....the seats could be redone but its very quaint and a step back to the days of the single theatre...

look, i like this place. old comfy seats, not recliners, but ok, huge number of seats so you never feel cramed in, organ music on saturday night, and they do take credit cards, so why can't they get a webpage or a phone number that works or get the movie feature and times printed in the bergen record? all it...

On Friday and Saturday nights an organ can be seen playing before your movie. The theater dates back in the 1920's. It could use some updating like new theater seats. It's still a great place to go to see the latest movies.

This is one of the only theatres around that has a built in organ. You have to go when it plays music before the show. It s huge and so comfortable. No credit cards here.

Beautiful art deco style movie. This is an old movie theatre that has been restored. Its absolutely beautiful. Just seeing the architecture is worth the price of admission!! Make sure you go there.
