While some people like the new, cramped theaters I prefer seeing a movie in a large theater with plenty of room to spreadout. We always go mid-week and have no problem finding a spot in the middle without anybody in front of us. We always...More

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!!

Didn't know SLO had one but check out some awesome 3d flicks at this theater that has the old school style of theater front. And apparently they show some old classic movies every month like "The Big Lebowski" and "jaws"
