“Small”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed August 2, 2013

This theatre is small kinda creepy, I went for a late night showing, pretty isolated, not to many people out or around. Dark and dingy, sticky floors. Conssesion stand already closed. Weird.

“Dated”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed July 20, 2013

The old neon sign makes for nostalgia in the over 50 group. Unfortunately the seats are uncomfortable along with the sense that the theater needs to be refurbished.

“Bees”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed July 12, 2013

We were disappointed that this facility was closed due to a bee infestation. It is hard to believe they had missed this one.

“Great Old Movie Theater”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 6, 2013

The Fremont is a grand old theater with a large screen and good sound system - great for special effect blockbusters! I prefer this venue to the newer small theaters that have no character at all.
