It is right in the heart of the down town. It is so neat to see old theaters still around. We didnt get a chance to go inside. If we had more time we would have.

This theatre is a real blast from the past from their entrance, the snack bar, and the extremely friendly staff. This theatre has films, which did not make the big theatres, but have individual merit for their actors and actresses. It is a great place...More
