“Glittering Gem”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 2, 2013

Excellent art-house movies and revivals in a beautiful art-deco theater (though split into two screening rooms). Right in the heart of D-town, perfect for a movie-and-dinner night out. Perfect antidote to multiplex fatigue.

“A True Local Theater”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 30, 2013

This is a restored "movie palace" from a by-gone era. Unfortunately, shortly after restoring the original theater, the investors found it necessary to add a second screen, for economic reasons, thus splitting the original audience seating. This is only a minor distraction from the original "feel" of the glamor days of the old movie palace that people of a certain age remember well. The building is clean and well maintained. There is no parking lot, but being a downtown theater, there is plenty of street parking nearby. The prices for this "art-house" theater are very reasonable for the many first-run films, as well as the concessions. You can save even more by becoming a "member," and your membership discounts are also recognized at a few near-by similar theaters.

“Great local art-house theater”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 25, 2013

This place is a real treasure. High quality films, great refreshments at reasonable cost (not overpriced multiplex prices). We love the National Theater Live series - live or almost-live shows from the National Theater in London. Just like being at live theater - except it only costs $18 per person!

“A great venue”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 25, 2013

Dinner and a movie is a classic good time. This theatre offers a non commercial option to those larger theaters. Then you have a choice of fantastic restaurants within walking distance.

“Local theater”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 25, 2013

Always shows award winning non blockbuster movies. Twin screens in small rooms that hold about 100 each. Think of a theater in a small town picture from the thirties. Almost all dollars raised to support the theater is local from patrons and businesses.
