“Perfect neighborhood theater”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 14, 2013

Decent movies on a regular basis, but what keeps me coming back is the friendly, competent employees. Each one always says hello and acts like they are genuinely glad to see you. I would much prefer to support a local theater with convenient free parking than pay some huge movie conglomerate twice as much to see the same movie and then pay for parking too. The Pickwick is a neighborhood, family movie theater.

“Pickwick”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 23, 2013

The front theater is by a famous architect and has a beautiful ceiling. The back ones are nothing special, but in a convenient location and not too expensive.

“Stunning Art Deco Theater”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 21, 2013

It used to be that you'd visit the Pickwick Theater once just to see it's beautiful Art Deco Design. Now with a recent $1.5 million dollar renovation, it's also a great place to see a movie. With all new rocking chair seats, a larger screen and a digital projector, the Pickwick can now compete with it's newer competitors as a great place to see a movie. In addition, they have 3 smaller theaters with a separate entrance around the back. They just don't make 'em like this anymore.
