Awesome recommendation from Angela at the best Western Plus Hotel. We were looking for something to do and she suggestion this home town theatre that had brought countless hours of movie going to she and her family. We sat in the balcony and wow what great seats. This theatre is run by volunteers and they seem to love what they do. Greta movie selection, super prices and the atmosphere is amazing. Would highly recommend versus the generic big movie theater.

We stumbled upon this gem during Spring Break. They had a run of free movies for the week (all run by volunteers). Someone suggested we sit in the balcony. What a gorgeous view. The ceiling has all the northern lights/stars adorning it. The seats were surprisingly comfy. The popcorn is made in coconut oil and was delicious. We will definitely be back here again. If you are looking for a theater with charm and a classical setting don’t look any farther.

This theater redefines going to the movies. It is a pleasant experience from the minute you buy your tickets from a friendly volunteer; then buy inexpensive but excellent popcorn (medium popcorn and medium pop is $5.). The seats are comfortable and there is a balcony. Trailers for the coming movies, but no ads! Yahoo! We saw a great movie and they also have Saturday matinees for kids (25 cents!); Wednesday matinees are the oldies, but goodies (also 25 cents!)

I wish more communities would bring back old venues like this. This is a gorgeous old theater. Prices are extremely reasonable. A BIG thank you to all the volunteers.
