“Great old theater”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 1, 2012

I love this old movie house... its very clean and well maintained and they tend to show a lot of independent films that you won't see any where else. The theaters are huge and the movie experience is very nice. An added bonus is that the snack bar serves beer and wine as well as the standard movie snackbar fare.

“A true treasure in Lexington”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 28, 2012

A movie experience like no other, beautifully restored with wonderful acoustics. The best popcorn in town and alcoholic beverages if you are so inclined. Movies that you won't see elsewhere and great concert series. You can also be part of a show called Woodsongs Old Time Radio Hour that is taped here. Located on Main Street, lots of fun!

“Love this place”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 17, 2012

It is one-of-a-kind. The play all the best movies (including ones that no other theater in town is showing), they serve alcohol, and the theater itself is gorgeous. You won't find service like this at any other theater.
