They have remodeled this theatre and the chairs on main level are very comfortable. The snack bar is reasonably priced and it is staffed mostly by volunteers. Awesome place to go! They serve drinks too!

Good popcorn. Blacklist shown earlier than shown on TV. Jon Bokenkamp, the producer and writer skypes with the audience after the show. What a plus! Great of movies that do not come to the local theaters. Can have wine and local craft beer.

This is an old remodeled movie theater and they present movies not readily available in the regular theaters. Prices are very reasonable and the popcorn is great also!

Sponsored and largely owned by a famous local screen writer, this theater seeks to give opportunities to see films that are extremely well made but not big box office and old time favorites. Not artsy but catering to those with a taste for something other...More

A local group has restored this theatre to its original glory. They show older movies or host special features but charge a reduced rate. It's staffed 100% by volunteers, so families will sometimes work together. They even offer alcoholic beverages to enjoy during the show!
