The Diamond Theater is both a movie theater and a venue for live original plays. It's whimsical decorations make your visit a truly unique experience. Just being there will bring out the kid in you, especially if you are old enough to remember how wonderful it was to go to a large movie theater with one big screen. They show top shelf movies (Avengers Infinity War, Black Panther, The Greatest Showman) as well as some interesting lesser known films ( Wait for Your Laugh - a documentary on the life and 90 year career of comedian and actress, Rose Marie) and they present original stage productions. The family who owns the theater writes the script (Mom), creates the scenery and costumes, and directs the play. Auditions are open to the community. There's professional lighting and the reviews have been quite laudatory! This is a great activity for Saturday nights or less than stellar weather days or any day. The prices for entry and for snacks are reasonable enough to bring all the neighborhood kids or all your friends. Who charges $8 for a top shelf movie? If you want to sit in the giant reclining chairs, the charge is $12 - still a steal! The theater is a labor of love of stage and screen - the decor is inspiring and quirky and encompasses everything you could want in a small town theater. The Diamond Theater provides a movie experience that you will thoroughly enjoy! Don't miss it!…
