“Quaint theater features independent films”
Reviewed May 28, 2014

My family and I viewed the award winning movie "The King's Speech" in this theater prior to its wider release a few months later. The theater is popular, and if you don't get there early enough, you may be disappointed and turned away. Lots of folks love this place and have joined by buying an annual pass, which also gives you a free parking pass for the year.

“Best Movies”
Reviewed April 29, 2014

It's a treat to visit the Grand. It is an old theater with an old neighborhood feel, showing great movies often not found in the chain theaters.
