We love the movies they show. The theater I'd very comfortable up or down. Good pop corn and a beer. Enjoy the show!

We loved this theater...it was beautiful and very clean. The downstairs theater is completely handicap accessible; they even have a bathroom on the same level for the handicapped. We saw Hunt for the Wildlings, which was funny and touching. A great night out.
