Unassuming, fun and inexpensive place to watch a movie and run by enthusiasts. Super fish place next door, too.

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.
