Theater was well maintained and very clean. Comfortable seats and pleasant décor. Current movies available which was a plus in a small local theater!!

The movie theater shows all the first run films one would expect. However, the seats are worn and the overall feel of the theater is dated. If you go to theaters in Williston or better yet, outside VT, you cannot help but see that this theater is in need of a makeover. We still go here but would really enjoy... More

The theater is old but charming. We were glad they had a theatre and was surprised to see they had 4 or 5 movies showing as the theater doesn't look that large. It's not new so no fancy seats. We were charged $8 for a senior and $11.50 for a regular ticket. It was suppose to be 3-D but the... More

No ice in soda, so I went back thinking it was forgotten. I was told they don't have an ice machine.

I LOVE this theatre and the family that owns it is very, very nice. Between shows though they do not let you in until the entire place clears. It is annoying at best. People have to wait a long time and if they are lucky that would be in the lobby. Frequently you have to wait out in the snow!... More

Very nice, beautiful theatre. Popcorn excellent. Nice friendly service. It reminded me of how the movie theaters were back when I was younger. Small theatre with hometown feel.

Your basic first run movie theater. Small screens, average sound and poor seats. Not your stadium seating type theater.
