Owner description: Classic art deco and neon movie theater.
Reviewed January 2, 2013

The Fremont is an old movie theatre that has been restored to its former glory, except the bathrooms, and been updated for current technology. It shows newly released movies but it also brings back the classics so that people can see them again on the big screen. I've heard they even have concerts there sometimes.

While some people like the new, cramped theaters I prefer seeing a movie in a large theater with plenty of room to spreadout. We always go mid-week and have no problem finding a spot in the middle without anybody in front of us. We always go early to spend time looking at the fabulous interior but be warned, this is an old building and the bathrooms are not luxury.

The Freemont represents the best in movie watching experience. The theater building is Art Deco and built in the 1940s. The screen is very large and the sound is great. This is the place to watch a 3D movie and is worth the $12 to $14.

LOVE to sit back in the chair and stare up at the art deco ceiling!! Incomparable theater. Make sure to go a bit early, so you can see the theater in all it's glory. It's well worth your time!!

I love taking photos of this great art deco theater, night or day!! A real classic. Take time to study the front of the building, and take shots of the whole building, plus all of the neon signage. Also note the ticket booth under the canopy out near the sidewalk, an another classic part of this design.
