It's an old timey theatre that reminds you why they "don't make them like they used to" anymore. Small theatre, small wooden seats, no cup holders that I recall. It feels like you're watching a movie in the 50s, and I'm not so sure that's a good thing. The sign out front is fun.

We absolutely loved visiting the Theatre. I had to go there because it is the location where Lee Corso exited the building with a baby bison during the College Gameday filming a few years ago. We found so much more there to enjoy. It is like a little time capsule. The Theatre is celebrating their 90th birthday this year. There... More

We love going here. It always reminds me of when I was younger going to the movies. We have seen lots of movies there. Great atmosphere.

The Fargo Theatre is an art deco theater preserved in downtown. It shows smaller films, often film-festival winners, as well as occasional big-budget movies and some classics. The addition of a second, smaller seating area means even more options. But the theater itself is quite a show, with beautiful details, lovingly restored. It's also a great smaller venue for music...

We recently went to see the new 'Hunt for the Wilderpeople' movie (which, I must add, was very good!) and was simply blown away by the theatre we saw it in. A very authentic feel and large screens helped us to have a lovely time; would highly recommend to travellers or residents.

We went to see the Wood Chipper and wasn't disappointed. There is a box with hats so you, too, can look like a movie extra. The young lady working the desk even took our picture. There are many racks of pamphlets to help make your stay in Fargo and the rest of Minnesota more enjoyable.

If you have never been to the old theater on Grand Ave in St.Paul, MN then a quick walk through of this theater will be a fantastic trip through time. A time when theaters were a big event that you got dressed up to go do and the details in the architecture are fabulous. With a curtain in front of... More
