“historic theatre”
Reviewed March 22, 2012

A beautiful historic theatre that's reminiscent of "the golden age" with a mezzanine lobby, ornately tiled staircase, and terrazzo floors. The most spectacular is a starry ceiling painted a deep, royal blue, with twinkling stars and sunrise/sunset effect. I feel transcended when there. We have attended many films and special events. My only compliant is that I wish they were able to offer more frequent events!

“Ripoff you off for POOR food”
Reviewed December 6, 2011

The food is terrible and a ripoff. Its greasy and poor quality. Popcorn and drinks they rob you blind.

“A Classic!”
Reviewed November 30, 2011

This old theatre has been refurbished and is so beautiful inside. There is even an organist playing the old organ before movies. For those of you who remember the good old days, you will really enjoy this! Aside from movies, there are live performances here too. Last spring we saw Natalie Cole and it was a wonderful show. Last week we saw the movie, "Margin Call" there. They boast that Elvis performed here back in the 50's and signed the wall. That has been preserved. They offer tours too.
