Not only will you see current movies, you feel like you have taken a step back in time in this charming, small historic theatre! Get there early if you want to sit in one of the recliners!!

this theater is comfortable, audience is usually quiet, owner introduces the movie before the show, concessions are available throughout the movie on your honor, shows movies not often in chains, no kids, clean, not small, not big.

Shows here are great! No seat is a bad seat. This place has some awesome entertainment that comes to perform here on stage.

Enjoy a beer with your popcorn or nachos while you enjoy a first-line movie. Can't beat it! Or pick a movie that you can't see anywhere else. Also lots of choices for dinner downtown before the movie.
