“Like no other!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 24, 2013 via mobile

I've never ever been to a movie theater remotely as nice. It's like a wonderful secret amongst Oak Park residents!

“Oak Park Tradition”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 7, 2013

I have been coming since I was a kid and now I bring my son. It just keeps getting better. The theater is very well maintained, clean bathrooms, clean booster seats, and the same friendly faces.

“Very clean”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 12, 2013

Liked everything about the place except the distance you had to travel to get to the concession stand. They had one set up on our end of the theater but was not open at the time.

“First run movies in a local theatre”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 29, 2013

The owners have upgraded the theatre over the years, and they show the best movies available, sometimes first run. They give free refills on drinks and popcorn, after you finish your first serving. Parking nearby, along with a lot of restauants on Lake Street, Marion, and Oak Park Avenues.
