Nostalgia at its finest including ticket prices. $5.50 at all times. Compare that to San Diego where a child's ticket is $11.00 and adults $15.00. They show first run movies for that price. There are new comfortable seats with no "pumpkin head" any where you...More

I took my kids to see Jurassic World at the Henn while we were traveling through Murphy. I was shocked that the price for all 3 of us including a box of candy was $18. What a bargain! Although the theater is old/historic, the seating...More

A older theater with a lot of charm. Tickets are only $5.50 for any age. Snack bar had a good selection and was moderately priced. One screen downstairs and one screen was upstairs. If using a wheelchair you should call ahead to see if your...More

I was surprised that this tiny theater offered first-run movies, and at a bargain price. Definitely worth a visit if you're in Murphy. The smallest theater I've ever been in, but it is a lot of fun, and like I said, surprisingly cheap!

Nice seats, excellent prices. It was nice to see the information about movies shown there back in the 30's and the early Star Wars days. Theatre was comfortable and sound and picture quality fine. My husband and I enjoyed the movie and would return.

I really loved what they done to the place. Me and my boyfriend went to see "Rings". The tickets are so affordable and I will be back.

Went there for the first time and enjoyed the nostalgic experience. Would like to go back more often but most movies are for children. That's nice for the families in the community but I think it would be nice to have one day a week...More

Really wanted to love the "Restored" Henn theater, but left feeling that with the exception of new seats, it's the same cold, drab, run-down theater it was prior to the supposed renovation. The new seating sits too far from the screen and forget the "Balcony"...More
