Went to fine this movie house only to fine it had moved down the road, not in the movie house any more. It also only had a small number of arcade machines that you could use, the others were chained off. Not worth the $5...More

Fine sweets. The arcade should be a top attraction but. The arcade is a collection of penny arcade machines from bygone eras. Unfortunately some are tagged as inoperative and others are inoperative and not tagged. Reporting them gets an :oh well" response of concern. You...More

Some really, really good fudge hand made by the owners. Good collection of different types of touristy stuff. Great history with the Movie House. Looking forward to a return visit.

Great little walk back in history. Quaint old machines most still in excellent working order. Fudge is yummy on your way out 🍭

Enjoyed playing the old coin machines with 'old money' which can be purchased on entry. We also watched old silent movies playing continually in the cinema seating area.

Too many machines were broken. Charged $7 per person for seven tokens but didn't find any working machines worth playing. The better ones were out of order.

The fudge was great and a good variety. Once we went in it was a little disappointing as many of the machines didn't work. The short movies were interesting and the old style seats were comfy. The old games and peep shows were fascinating overall.

Great service from the lady in the shop, especially considering my son was being difficult. Fudge is delicious, and they even have sugar free options. Lovely old fashioned shop with lots of tourist giftware.
