The Dryden shows films 6 nights a week (with 2 shows on Sunday sometimes). The archive of 50,000 films from the earliest days to the present provide a wide range of subjects and styles. The take-10 tickets offer great savings.

This is a quaint little theater that usually runs only special showings. The theater is well maintained with a nice coffee cafe inside surrounded by beautiful gardens to walk through during good weather. This is worth checking out.
