Prices are good, Atmosphere is fun, large open the ceiling creates a feeling of being in a real theater, and a movie becomes becomes an activity for the whole family.

Outward appearances can fool you!! This theatre is absolutely beautiful inside and brings a touch of nostalgia within. It has a small, quaint lobby area but, inside the theatre, it is massive! The chairs are very comfortable and the open beam ceiling inside the theatre...More
