The Fremont is a grand old theater with a large screen and good sound system - great for special effect blockbusters! I prefer this venue to the newer small theaters that have no character at all.

LOVE to sit back in the chair and stare up at the art deco ceiling!! Incomparable theater. Make sure to go a bit early, so you can see the theater in all it's glory. It's well worth your time!!
