If you want the quality of a drive in with the price of an IMAX,this is the place for you! The theater was freezing,the subtitles were cut in half,and the concessions suck. I'm willing to pay $3-$5 for these conditions,it even makes it a bit charming. But when you Jack up the prices it just feels like robbery

Great theater with two screens. Shoes latest movies at very reasonable prices. Like all theaters, the popcorn is way over priced.

We haven't been to the theater in Watkins for a year, and wow has it changed. We went back the weekend before Christmas. I guess there is a new owner. The price for the four of us to see a movie almost doubled. It used to be under $20 for the two kids and us, now it was over $30.... More

Took my son to see Thor last night. This was the first time we have gone there at night and not to the matinee in a while. This is not our beloved Glen Theater anymore. Prices have gone up...a lot. It was $8.00 for adults and $8.00 for children under 12. My son is 13 so $16.00 just for the... More

Used to be the best kept secret for local moviegoers! All has changed now. They will not even accept the movie passes I purchased last Christmas for my wheelchair-bound disabled son. When I asked them if they would they said flatly "No -- take it up with the previous owner!" I've heard that the prices are much higher than they... More

This is where my family goes when there's a movie that we absolutely have to see in the theater. The price is right, the theater original and parking is no problem.

New owner. Prices are outrageous. The concession counter is a joke. Owner will go out of business. We will never go back.

Super cute little theatre with an old timey feel. Thought it was reasonable and a fun thing to do on a mini vacation, if you are in the area and they are playing something you are interested in check it out. Of course it's not a large theatre and they don't have a big variety of showings, but that adds... More

Two Screens. We like the old theater. Seats are getting a bit old, but it's hard to find the charm of an old time theater showing new releases. The newer theater is next door and offers modern stadium-style seating. Equipment has recently been updated and the theater now offers 3D movies as well. With the new equipment, prices have increased,... More

With todays economy the way it is..Im so glad there is still a place where kids and adults alike can go to enjoy movies for a cheap price. Wished I lived closer.
