Visiting from Ireland and wanted to get the American movie theatre experience.. what a place, steeped in history. Really comfy seats in the balcony area. Popcorn and drinks perfect, help yourself to butter and salt. Overall great experience.

This is a great theater for families. Beautifully designed with a big screen and comfortable seats. Great variety of snacks and drinks too. Paid parking in the parking lot of about $20 and then there’s street parking on the back streets.
