It is a great theater. Comfy seats, helpful employees and quite clean. I was especially happy the last time I visited to see a young man I know with special needs working near the snack bar, greeting people and helping them with getting straws and napkins (and cleaning up the popcorn toppings spilled as well).

I go to a variety of theaters but really like this theater. I consider it an "old school" theater due to the outside look and setup. However, it has been updated and is always clean when I go. They even show local advertisements on the screen which highlight local businesses which I like. Before the show starts, the red plush... More

Right in the heart of Uptown Whittier on Greenleaf Ave, the movie theater gives great value when Compared to larger chain theaters. $6 for a matinee screening of a new movie release. Popcorn priced moderately along with Drinks, but coupons are available online to help offset the cost. Screen size for larger auditoriums are fine but seem a little close.... More

This a a fun place to see a movie. Less expensive than any mainstream theater, including popcorn, and it is larger, too. Seats are decent and theaters are clean. Lots of locals come to see movies there. I like to support local endeavors. Families, couples and teens see movies there.

Thank Diane I
