Christmas Day was the opening day for the movie 'Le Mis' and we couldn't of seen it in a more appropriate theatre. The Ziegfeld whisks you back in time with its plush red upholstered chairs and red flocked wall coverings. Chandeliers and ornate light sconces...More

This theater is absolutely lovely and definitely rich in history, but our experience was soured by a less-than-friendly usher. We attended a screening of The Great Gatsby and while I don't think we could've picked a more appropriate venue to watch this film (look for...More

Been for multiple films, the one that stands out is Blade Runner. The Theater could always be replicated some where else but never matched. Sad to hear it's going to become a ball room.

Great large theatre in the old fashioned way. Clean, red velvet with high ceilings, great sound and an open feeling. Saw The Martian there and it was spectacular.

Visited this theatre to watch the premiere of the man from uncle, a surreal experience in its self. The theatre is beautiful, sends you back to going to watch pantomimes as a kid.

A huge cinema replete with red carpet and chandeliers. Worth a visit for film lovers. Ticket prices are a but steep, but this is all about the experience. Since it is only one screen, your viewing options are obviously limited.

Went to see movie while on a business trip. Beautiful theatre, grand bathrooms, polite staff. Concessions are same as most theatres. The movie sound is great and it wasn't busy at all.
