This is a very nice 40's/50's theater. It was converted to a multi-screen theater, but now is a soooo much nicer environment, having been restored to its original beauty. Besides selected stage shows, it also features classic movies from the past. It's great!

I have attended a few concerts here and it truly is a wonderful venue! I generally sit in the balcony and there is plenty of room in the rows. There is not a bad seat in the house!

The Theater was very clean and quiet. I was unsure as to why the attendant kept coming in to the movie with the orange light cone thing there was maybe 10 people watching the movie but over all it was a great movie and experience
