First-class restoration of a 1932 movie palace with additional multiplex. The same architect, Timothy Pfluger, designed San Francisco's Castro Theater and Oakland's Paramount. It is a testament to his genius that all three have been preserved. Even if you don't choose a film on the main screen, ask the usher (yes they have real ushers straight out of central casting--not skittish, sullen teens) when you can peek inside Screen One. Gorgeous architectural details throughout. Good snack bar selections including fresh brewed ice tea and a good value kid's pack.

Saw the Great Gatsby here. Worth a trip just to see the lobby and old theater. Lovingly restored richly decorated art deco gem. They hold various events here throughout the year and on weekend show classic movies in the main old large size, big screen theater. They also have a variety show night with local talent. Worth a stop if only to see the lobby and main theater.
