This theater plays first run movies AND has wonderful special events. They are the perfect part of the community and you really feel at home when you're there. The popcorn is super crunchy, too!

Great place, good selection of films. Indie movies. Slater Bros film festival in July is super. Seats are a little uncomfortable so bring a small pillow. Movies like it used to be in a small town theater, but sound system is updated!

This is an OLD movie theater, and I would be a little afraid to see it in full light. It has three very-small auditoriums, and the seats are vintage 1980's -- meaning low seatback and very noisy. They obviously added cup holders at some point,...More

This is a small town theatre but with three screens, they usually have something for everyone. Free kids movies on Saturdays, opera, indie films, a classic series, a film festival in the summer.....
