It's been many years since I have been to a small theater like this one so perhaps I am feeling a bit nostalgic, but we loved this place. Don't let the mom and pop feel of the place fool you, though. This place has been upgraded to stadium style reclining seating, offers tickets online, and has a good variety of... More

Neighborhood cinema showing a great mix of box office hits and art films as well as Met Opera Live. Tickets available on line. Very comfortable seats and good visibility. Have been there many times.

I have visited here several times and have come away with the same incomplete feeling. The theaters feel like they are arranged incorrectly- best way I can explain it. The bathrooms completely FAIL as you have to proceed up a narrow stairway and if its occupied, there is no place really to wait. The workers are nice and they offer... More

Small, quaint wonderful theater. Great place to go if you don't care to go to a mainstream busy theater. This place is wonderful.

The first thing you will notice when you walk in the door at the Visulite is the wonderful aroma of FRESH popped popcorn! Yummy! Wonderful snack bar with condiments, too. They offer such a wide variety of entertainment. You can go to the Opera on Saturday afternoon-See the Avengers,Imitation Game or American Sniper-see many of the top names in Today's... More

Went to see the new Avengers movie and even though they had 3D availability they did not show it in 3D. Why not? We had a good time – but it would have been much better in the 3D format.

Hi Judy, thanks for visiting the Visulite! Although we *do* have 3D capabilities, we normally only show our films in 3D during the first week of their respective runs. Avengers ran in 3D at the 4:00 set for the first week, but we dropped those 3D showings after the 1st week since they just aren't as popular as the 2D... More

New to the area, we were looking for the Imitation Game, and this was where we found it. They also show mainstream. Very small theatre in the middle of town. Comfy seats, but what sold me was that they offer hot tea at the concession, and a very nice young man who was happy to chat about the theatre. We... More

Very nice theatre right in town and walking distance from Stonewall Jackson hotel. The seats were very comfortable and the prices were great. The size of the screen and sound were really good. Would go back again.
