It's nice to see a movie in this beautiful old theater. It shows foreign and independent movies. There are 3 rooms, and two are beautiful but one is very small. It's almost like you are in your living room watching your big screen tv.

This theatre is a beauty with the original Art Deco and large comfy seats, lots of leg room and showing excellent movies. It is a 75 year old tradition and truly the "only place" to see movies, atmosphere and excellent popcorn too.

We went here to see regular movies (mainstream) and loved the decoration, the ambiance, the small size and the prices. Just a great value for the family.
