“What movie houses should be!”
Reviewed February 28, 2014

This theatre is partially owned by "Brian Cranston" (Breaking Bad) and he obviously loves films of all types! We've seen various movies here, they only show some movies in one theatre only once per day so they can offer many more films per day...!!! Also, they offer "early movie" times for $6 with a cup of complimentary coffee! LOVE IT!

“Making movies fun again”
Reviewed February 23, 2014

This is what a movie theater should be. Not just your usual currant popular movies but they also show classics, movies you might have missed out on last month, live theater performances from New York, Chicago, etc., comfy seats, good sound and picture and reasonable prices. Movies before noon are $6 with free coffee!

The owners are some real entertainment folks, including Brian Cranston, who know movies and what the experience should be. They have live chats with stars of the movies, producers, writers, etc. occasionally. We saw Brian Cranston interview Jonah Hill there after seeing Wolf of Wall Street...live and in person, very cool, for the usual $8 ticket.

In the lobby they have good sandwiches from a local deli, a full bar and some tempting goodies. One of my favorite things they do is have some "21+ only" showings so you can enjoy a movie kid-free if you like and enjoy a cocktail too. In a day and age where it seems like everything must be family-friendly, it's nice to have a break from it.

And as you leave the theater doors, after a better than usual movie experience, a uniformed attendant offers a piece of candy, just like the old days.
I love it.
