I love this place! It's like stepping back to a simpler time. There are even tables at the back of the theater where you can eat dinner while catching a movie. Fantastic!

It may be a small business. But its great. The café has all types of food. And of course the theater is great from the seating to an area where you can eat.

Very limited menu. If you like hot dogs and ice cream, I guess you have nothing to lose. Could use some improvement on their choices.

Very relaxing laid back. Typical diner type menu, food isn't amazing but it's good enough entire staff is very helpful and friendly. You can take your meal inside and eat whiles you watch. Movies typically last a week and they only do family friendly movies....More

On a quest for a perfect burger I stopped by the Capitol Cafe on the Square in Laurens. Neat 50's theme and jukebox, old diner-like feel. Burger was very good. Fresh, not frozen. Wait staff was superb. Nice selection of hand-dipped ice cream, too.

We love to grab some food and a movie here. You can't beat the prices, 6 dollars per person for the movie and great food prices as well. If you are near you should take in a movie here in a classic walk in.
