Took a break from the sun and saw a movie this small two plex theater. Fair value, OK snacks and kind or rude employees.

We needed something different and relaxing to do for a night so we chose to see a movie. The theater was clean, had good movies playing and good snacks. Nothing exceptional about this theater, but was perfect for our purposes!

Small theater but good movies and pretty good snacks to go with it. Great place to spend a rainy afternoon or evening and not as crowded as mainland movie theaters. YEAH!!!

We did spend a lot of time here since on this trip it rained pretty much every day. So we went to 3 movies the week we were there. It is a little theater kind of run down but they played the latest movies and the theaters themselves were pretty big.

Great place to go see a... More

Been watching the big screen releases here since I was in high school (that's a long time!) and I've seen improvements/upgrades a bit over the years, however, they pale in comparison to anything on the Mainland!

The only movie theater on the island. Took a night off to see "Gravity" in 3-D. Staff was friendly (as is the case with pretty much all the islanders). Odd that there was no center section so you sit on the right or left. No a big issue but odd.

If you can wait to see a movie then do it. They only accept cash. The lady that owns it runs the cash register and treats everyone like cattle. She has no personality and down right rude. Watch out for they're matinee times and prices that the show online. A lot of time you will get there to find out... More

although, the show they were playing prior to the main movie was way more entertaining than previews. Good spot to get away from heat.
