This theater with its one screen manages to show a wide variety of movies in a single day, from kiddie matinees on the weekends to more adult movies in the evenings and sometimes special screenings of older movies or short films from the awards season. The price is right for both the movie and the popcorn and the seating is terrific with its stadium configuration of seats towards the back.

This is the theater I used to ride my bike to for Saturday matinees when I was a kid (which was a very long time ago). Little has changed since then except the technology advances. It was built in 1948 and had stadium seating before anyone knew what that was. $3 for adults, $2 for kids, reasonably priced concessions. This theater is a classic.

The Riverview Theatre is small, shows films after they have been off the initial circuit, is located in a cute little neighborhood, and has the very best popcorn ever. This is historic theatre at its finest!

I don't frequent the Riverview - but every time I go there I am reminded of why I love it. I always make it to the Oscar nominated documentary shorts and am glad that they are willing to host films, that other theatres do not. The decor in there is a blast from the past. The staff are friendly and popcorn is the best. I do wish, however, that they took credit cards. But that is their only flaw.
