The best part about this is the Irene Dunne sign and the Rat Pack’s Some Came Running plaques in front of the theatre. It calls to the Silver Screen era and the heyday of the movies.

Definitely needs an upgrade but it does have that old school feel. If that's your thing, then you probably wouldn't mind it. But I would care more about current movies being played and you won't get that here. They are like hand me downs

Ok... so I have to admit - I didn't actually go see a movie here.... let me explain. Stopped by outside to see all of the old "historic" things to look at on the sidewalk (plaques, bronze reliefs, etc) that had to do with Hollywood movies being MADE in Madison. Not only were there things to see/read outside, we were lured inside from the nice guy in the ticket booth (yes - a real booth) to see more. The staff inside had ENORMOUS amounts of historical/interesting movie trivia/items based on the location and city, to see and hear about inside. Lots of old movie posters, prints, props - etc. Now... I asked the manager if I could just peek inside before the movie started... he kindly obliged, and I have to tell you - It just had that fantastic retro movie theater feel to it. It was just amazing inside the actual theatre - soft lights, velvety chairs... it just seemed perfect! Here is the best part - came back an hour later after an awful bbq lunch, and wanted to "see" the inside while a movie was playing (this IS a one screen theatre), again, the manager was very kind to let us take a look. It was moviegoers heaven. A bright screen, nice sound, but most important - it was PITCH BLACK in the theatre... literally couldn't see my hand in front of me if I was sitting in the dark. Came back out and commented on this, and the manager told me that it's the way moviegoing should be! - and he is right! Theaters now are so "lit up" during movies, that I feel like I could do surgery in them! BUT... this tiny little theatre is in desperate need of $$$ to update the theatre to digital (much to my chagrin - much prefer film, but I'm old school...) - so, stop in and get some popcorn and just walk around soaking in the history and PLEASE PLEASE PLEASE go and see a movie there the way it was supposed to be - you most certainly will NOT be disappointed!!
