Nice historic movie house with charm and character. Free parking a short walk down York Road in a medical building lot. We saw a movie in one of the smaller theaters and seats were comfortable and cushioned with drink holders. Not super comfortable like the...More

We come here often to see movies. The employees are friendly and the theater is wonderful! The movie/snack prices are great-not too high. Love that you can eat delicious Clark burgers and drink local beer while enjoying a movie. Support the Senator!!

Enjoy yourself in a 900 seat auditorium, with wall deco decorations from the opening day, 1939. With a 40 foot screen and a state of the art sound and projection systems, you will have a wonderful experience. I have been going there for the last...More

I love The Senator! We try to always go here rather than a chain theater. The ambiance and decor simply cannot be beat. When Star Wars Episode VII came out, we saw that opening night, and they had musicians on stage playing the soundtrack before...More

Some movies were made to be seen on a huge screen with great sound and shared with a live audience. This is not your average Netflix movie experience. History, art deco, a restored movie palace. Your kids have never seen anything like this. And they...More
