Love this theater. The restoration is beautiful. The only downside is the smaller screen, but that is due in part to keeping it as original as possible. Yet it still has modern technology.

A great place to see a movie or a music event. Popcorn is great. The big screen is the way to see classic movies.

This is one of the oldest movie house in the county, and you can tell the minute you walk in. They have kept the integrity of the building while making upgrades to keep it running.

Love this old theatre that was restored but the seating was upgraded to more comfortable modern seats. They have an old pipe organ that they use on weekends to entertain you before the show starts, very fun!

This is one of the best places to see a movie. It's a beautifully restored theater, and the ticket prices are so affordable.

Lived here in DG for over 7 years, first time visiting. It's huge, older but full of character. Will definitely try to come here more often with the kids.
