Seats are about $1 more than other theaters but absolutely worth the price. Seats are very comfortable, leather, wide, with plenty of space. Bar downstairs to enjoy a glass of wine or a drink either before or after the show. Seats are reserved so get their early or order online.

What a great place. It's a wonderful small theater with good views from everywhere. It's clean and comfortable. I was with three friends to see a play and had never been there before. I was very pleasantly surprised. Will happily go again.

Great place to see a play. Small enough that every seat is a good seat. Good actors too. They even have a full bar in lobby area.

They have films that many other cinemas don't show. The theatre is comfortable and the popcorn is very good.
