“Smaller but good”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 11, 2012

Went here this past weekend and while it is a smaller theater, it was nice to not be part of the huge crowds. No issues with seating or sound. The only complaint I had is that concessions shut down half way thru our movie (the late show) and we couldn't get a soda!

“There isn't a 'bad' seat in the house!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 11, 2009

Check often to see what live entertainment is being hosted at this venue.
the theater is on the small scale, and although we sat 10 rows from the stage, we could have purchased the less expensive tickets and had a great view, too.
This theater appears to be a little known local secret. A group of us went on a Saturday this spring (April 2009) to see "Menopause the Musical". We parked the car w/out a problem and headed off to find a place to have dinner. Wow, lots of dining choices with original (as opposed to 'chain' type dining) menus. The theater was a short walk from our restaurant. The show was VERY affordable at a time when you practically need to have access to the Carnegie fortune to see a live performance. Afterwards, we hit Ben & Jerry's on the way to the car, for smoothies! Everyone in our group of 10 said it was an 'out of the ballpark' experience.
