“Interesting”
Reviewed February 4, 2012

An old theatre brought back to life. They tend to show more independent films. Seats are comfortable, even for bigger people. They sell booze here... not for kids.

“Great classic theater”
Reviewed February 3, 2012

This great old theater makes going to a movie more of an event. Try to get there to hear the organ player before weekend evening shows.

“I like this place”
Reviewed January 30, 2012

It is a great place to catch movies with your significant other. I like the decoration and it is a great building, there is plenty of places to eat around the area. Plus this is not a chain movie place, it is a nice place with its own personality. I enjoy watching movies that are low budget ot just foreign movies. Excellent place to catch a movie. Oh now they sell alcoholic beverages if you are in the mood for. Support local places like this

“Very cool”
Reviewed January 25, 2012

This place is a classic, and if you get the chance you should totally go. It's beautiful inside, and has an old-world charm. Very ornate. If they still have it, and you're a fan, attend the Rocky Horror Picture Show sing-along on Saturdays.
