Apparently there were rats found in the theater and they were closed by the Health Department. It was initially closed due to renovations, but the newspaper reported the rats. Makes you wonder where the rats are now????

This theater needs some updating but for the price you can't really complain. For a dollar movie they have some very recent and good movies. Most of the time there is not a wait which is a good thing.
