We love going to the Crescent for date night. They almost always have something playing that is of interest, and often they will have the more artsy films that you can't find at the big theaters. Fun place to get some popcorn and enjoy something...More

This is an independent theater in the heart of the downtown entertainment district. Max (the owner) is very friendly and passionate about film. There are recliners in the front row, and beer and wine are served.
