Iconic theater in the NW suburbs. Friendly local staff, hot popcorn and good prices. The Pickwick also offers many community oriented programs such as the showing of It's a Wonderful Life each Christmas.

Many of the recent movies, popcorn available, and the usual snacks. Comfortable seats. $6.00 was the last time we went, definitely a bargain!
