When the Heights presents a special showing of a White Christmas or Wizard of Oz, go! It is fun, the organ music is great. And they have the best popcorn! You won't be disappointed.

We have seen a few movies here. Totally impressed with the organist. Good location, atmosphere, and comfortable seating with leg room! Can't say enough good things - go and enjoy. When done, grab a Dairy Queen right outside the door. Highly recommend this facility.
