No hassle movie going

No stadium seating, but no Mall hastle either. Just one showing at a time. First run movies for less

A beautiful interior with a loge and seating for 1,000. Refurbished several years ago. Just saw Star Wars this past weekend on a giant screen for ten bucks! Seniors pay eight dollars. Great popcorn and refreshments. There is an organ concert on an authentic Wurlitzer for half hour before the show on weekends. Parking is easy. You can't lose by... More

Saturday with the Wurlitzer makes it more than a movie showing...plus the Art Deco interior. Reasonable prices, good parking (unlike the malls), the antithesis of the "box theatre".

This is the only movie theatre I will go to. Nicely renovated, large old style theatre, so many seats, and a balcony area. On the weekends there is an organist playing to entertain the audience before the movie starts. Perhaps because it is a large volume space in an old building, it gets cold, so dress warmly in the winter!

An interesting experience with a large pipe-organ which is played before the movie on Saturday nights.

This theater is a classic! It is one of the remaining theaters that still have a piano player! The theater is basic, but very clean. The employees are very pleasant and helpgul.

Movie theater with one huge screen and ornate old time movie theater furnishings. Organ player entertains before movie showing. A reminder of the opulence of former movie theaters!

This a beautiful single screen theater from the 1920's with a genuine pipe organ! It is played before the show on weekends by volunteer organists/ Otherwise it's a very large theater with big screen by modern theaters. This is our first choice of all local theaters, they have the best in first run movies and also do revival festivals several... More

I go every year for their Christmas Show. Beautiful old fashion theater. They run Its a Wonderful Life on a Saturday in December.

Gorgeous - be sure to look at the ceiling, with its decorative painting and Tiffany light fixture. The seats are not "stadium seating" comfort, but they are fine. Movie screen is huge - great for action flicks. Check out their vintage film days, complete with organ player.
