We enjoyed an Indie film here with good friends. The theater is a bit tired overall and need some updating cleaning and fixing. My seat was partially broken but serviceable. The ticket takers were overly friendly- beyond what you would expect in a community theatre....More

This is a wonderful place to see a movie. Minimal kids and crowds. Wine and beer with your popcorn. Excellent taste in movies. We had a wonderful night out and I look forward to going back to this classic theater many times.

What's better than watching an Indie film, having a beer or wine and not spending $100?!? This place is a historical landmark, the service is spectacular and the popcorn tastes just as good (or better) than Legacy... and you don't have to pay $25 a...More
