We visited here on a Tuesday night so attendance was pretty thin. The inside of the theater is beautiful and perfectly nostalgic. It was a great place to wind down after a week of sightseeing. The marquee was not lit, perhaps only on the weekend?...More

I've gone to a few premiers here, a spontaneous Grace VanDerWaal concert, and general movies, and I always have a good time. You'll occasionally bump into the owner there and he is so friendly. The concession stand line can get long sometimes, but nothing like...More

To me the best part is a nice wide viewing area. Add the pre-movie organist and his musical talents. Groupon often has deals that make this a real bargain. However, if you don't have one, it is still worth the trip

What a beautiful theater. There are no theaters anymore. Go to hear the organ player on Saturday night before the movie and then sit anywhere in this gorgeous theater.

This place is great when you want to see a movie that you can watch in peace. It's never overcrowded and the staff is very helpful. It has the class of an old time theatre which makes it standout above the rest.
