Smaa with just three screens, but it offers some of the best movies--mostly independent and foreign plus great documentaries-- that play in the area. Take in an afternoon show and then go next door for an early dinner at Owen's Fish Camp.

Nice place to see the significant but not so commercial movies (don't look for Aquaman). Wine and beer are available and the theaters are intimate. I have loved going there for about 15 years. It's a treat.

There is no parking for the theatre. Be prepared for a long walk unless you get lucky.
