Take a trip back in time! The heights theater is gorgeous and welcoming. The bathrooms are not fancy but the experience totally makes up for it!

Take a break from those cineplexes and experience what movie going used to be like. Completely renovated and beautifully done from the exquisite lobby to the velvet stage curtain. Modern heating, new seats, fully restored comfort. Senior movie prices are a bargain at $5 for first run flicks. The owners also manage the Dairy Queen next door and you can bring in DQ into the theater. Frequented by middle aged and older people which always makes for a civilized experience. I wish they popped better popcorn - my only complaint.

Not all movie theaters are created equal. Drop by on Saturday night and you'll understand what the fuss is about. The ticket booth is just inside the front door, where you expect it. And there is one ticket taker. If you get there early enough, the organ and organist start playing before the organ rises up out of the orchestra pit. He is playing songs from the forties and fifties, and will acknowledge your applause with a flourish. But the best part is how you look out over the audience without feeling like you are in a helicopter. And there is much gold leaf to look at around the stage. The maroon curtain is drawn not once, but twice. It's a family-run theatre. They only show the movies they want to show. My wife and I watched "Gravity" at the Heights, and enjoyed it more than if we had gone to the Imax.

We love this theater and always go there when they show a movie we want to see. The inside is restored and is so beautiful. The curtains open when the movie starts just like in the old days. The screen is big and all seats on are one floor, there isn't a balcony.
They use real butter on their popcorn.

We love this one-screen theater and chose it over others when it is playing something we want to see. It is beautiful and fully restored. Prices are reasonable. Picture and sound are great...comparable to more modern theaters. For the full experience, go on a night when they have an organist prior to the movie. This theater does not show previews, so don't be late for your show.
