Good popcorn. Blacklist shown earlier than shown on TV. Jon Bokenkamp, the producer and writer skypes with the audience after the show. What a plus! Great of movies that do not come to the local theaters. Can have wine and local craft beer.

A local group has restored this theatre to its original glory. They show older movies or host special features but charge a reduced rate. It's staffed 100% by volunteers, so families will sometimes work together. They even offer alcoholic beverages to enjoy during the show!
