“What a great local resource!”
Reviewed July 9, 2012

We went to one of the free movie presentations on a Friday night in July. We had no trouble getting in - - it wasn't a well known movie but we enjoyed it. Before the movie a presenter gave a brief talk about the movie, which added to our enjoyment. They also showed a newsreel and a cartoon from the same year the movie was made.

I knew how to get to the facility from previous trips, but this was the first time my husband had been there. He noted that there weren't many signs indicating how to find your way into the place -- you can see it up on the hill but it isn't obvious how to get to it.

“Fun”
Reviewed February 12, 2012

Great and very interesting, but don't bring little children as there is a lot to digest and they will get bored/tired quickly.

“Way to see old movies and have the history behind the films.”
Reviewed February 2, 2012

We often go to see movies that we have seen long ago or have never seen. The historical offerings before the movie begins are priceless. Easy to see what is going to be playing by checking the website or reading the local paper. Reservations are mandatory or you may not get in. What a wonderful thing and it is FREE.

“Great Movies, Great Theater, and it is all free”
Reviewed January 9, 2012

We visited this awsome facility for the first time to watch "The concert for Bangladesh" on the big screen. The theater is awsome and the sound system was magnificent - made you feel like you were there in Madison Square Garden. They have a varied selection of movies from the past.
