“Richmond's Last Movie Palace”
Reviewed December 28, 2011

Definitely go when the Mighty Wurlitzer is being played before the movie (usually Friday or Saturday night) a real treat for the kids. Still the best movie value in town, but for how much longer is the question...

“Best theatre ever, a true classic”
Reviewed December 18, 2011

This is a must see if you in Richmond. It's a a grand old theatre and on Saturday night's don't miss Bob Gulledge playing the mighty wurlitzer! And if that wasn't enough it's only $2 a ticket and their concessions are 1/2 the price of the chain theatres.

“A Must See”
Reviewed November 20, 2011

The only theatre that still only cost $1.99 to see a movie. Very unique with the original old wooden fold up seats will remind you of the past. Located in Carytown. A great little area to visit for shopping in boutiques and interesting restaurants.
