Pleasant old school movie theater, more than one screen. Good place to go to with some informal eating places nearby for dinner. Classic neon sign.

You can’t get better than an old school home town theatre! Easy parking and tons of places to eat nearby.

Old time movie theatre art-deco style with a wine bar restaurants and coffee shops within close walking distance and parking in the back. They host fun special events as well. Love the largest room with balcony. Great way to see movies.

Beautiful art-deco style movie theater. Not the box style of modern movie houses. Easy parking. Restaurants surround the Theater Square for a before show or after dinner/lunch.

It's nice to see a movie in this beautiful old theater. It shows foreign and independent movies. There are 3 rooms, and two are beautiful but one is very small. It's almost like you are in your living room watching your big screen tv.
