“Great friendly movie experience”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 12, 2013

I was impressed, it was a fun experience.
The staff was so friendly, you can bring your own bowl for popcorn and they will fill it up for a nominal fee.... what a deal!
Clean, tidy and comfortable seats. Inexpensive on a Tues. just $5.00 ea.
Support this independent movie theater, don't let all the big guys wipe them out!!! One major show per week, Fri. to Thurs. then it changes. Lots of shows for the kids too.

“Always Wonderful!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 30, 2013

Nothing like a trip to a super cool retro movie theatre! I know it's been around for at least 25 years? I think its still owned and operated by the original family owners. Its not super loud with reclining chairs or anything, but its fun and way less expensive!

Homey atmosphere, family owned and run. Eco-friendly, bargains if you bring your own popcorn container and drink container.

“Cute and Quaint Little Theatre Back to the Old Days”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 5, 2013

I like that the theater is small not loud like the big box theaters, you can enjoy the movie, plus you can bring your own bowl some nights for popcorn. Wish we had more movie theaters like this one!!

“Quaint local theatre with a BYOC policy”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 4, 2013

This is the little theatre that could! It has been featured in at least one TV series (Smallville) and seems like it's hardly changed a day since it opened. Prices are incredibly reasonable and if the theatre's not packed from the 7 pm showing they'll sometimes offer guests to stay for the 9:30 pm show at not charge(double bill). If you bring your own beverage and pop corn containers you can fill them for around $2.50 each (this it their BYO Container policy). Most shows open with the owners coming out and introducing themselves, setting the stage for the evening and even telling a joke.
