Enjoyed our evening watching The Three Stooges in this unique historical theater. Our children truly enjoyed themselves and that was refreshing to see them away from their electronics appreciating history. Will return

I attended this “neighborhood” movie house regularly during the 1960s, and it was quite different from the beautiful auditorium of today. Back then, the majority of the wall space was draped in gold curtains, hiding the exotic Asian interior. Perhaps it was left-over from the...More
