A friend and I recently saw Green Book at the Fair Oaks. We chose a weekday matinee and there were plenty of great seats. The theater is clean and has decent sound. It costs $8.00 a seat which is far better than the towns multiplex.

We really enjoy this theatre because it feels like home, local, with friendly faces. The owner is totally dedicated to the experience and keeps the theatre in good condition. There is only one movie at a time, but when it is right, there is no...More

Love this family owned theater showing first run movies, all seats $8, reasonable snack prices, free refills on med/large popcorn, comfortable seats. We crack up each time since we rarely see anyone under 50 there, truly a senior delight for cheap date night.

Busy theatre. Comfortable seats. Reasonable snacks. Good evening activity. We used Fandango to get our seats in advance and that helped us get good seats.

Not only is this theater less expensive, it is one BIG theater--no little multiplex rooms here. The seats are big and really comfy, and they use real butter on the popcorn. This theater is the BEST!

While staying in Pismo Beach we decided to take in a movie. Checking on Yelp, we found one right here in AG. The movie was very good, Allied, but what was most remarkable was the theatre. This theatre opened in 1948. It is a single...More
