I love the theater. They always have something going on throughout the year for adults, kids and families. If you live locally, and don't go at least a couple times a year, shame on you *smile* For visitors, I hope there is something great going on when you roll through town so you can see for yourself what I'm talking about.

It may have lost some of the neon lights the theatre had when my grandmother took me 40 years ago but I still enjoy the pit theatre organ that rises up playing fun music that the guests sometimes sing-along to. I remember when there were pre-show fashion shows. The theatre is not so much about the movie as it is the experience. We still go about every other year. Walk around the nooks and crannies and winding stairs to discover the beautiful bathrooms accompanied by the sitting area for ladies of yesteryear to freshen up. You will be shocked at how ornate this theatre is with its intricate carvings, balconies and mezzanines and subtle lighting. A wonderful experience for the entire family but don't expect a full-scale concession stand. The theatre operates from limited fund-raising efforts. They also offer safe downtown free parking.

Have seen multiple concerts here and enjoyed them all. The acoustics are superb on the main floor and the interior architecture has been lovingly restored. This is one of the classic old timey movie theaters in excellent shape.
