I brought my family to the theatre to see a PG movie. We were kinda shocked by the trailers for the films that they showed.

This is a wonderful location that features excellent movies. Regal needs to invest in the update to this theater. It is a little dated and needs some technology and seating updates.

This is a real movie theatre! It is in a neighborhood and it shows movies and not carbon copy flicks. It is clean and has an elegance of old theatres. Staff is attentive.

You get to see movies the other theaters don't carry. Reminds you of what movie theaters used to be like. They have the best tasting popcorn! Love this theater!!!!

The Westhampton specializes in quality indy/foreign films. It's an older theatre without stadium seating, so you may have to change seats to see over someone who's taller than you.

Intimate theater in west Hampton area specializing in independent/ art house films--do not expect to see blockbusters here. Theaters are small and generally not overcrowded (patrons are respectful and keep noise to a minimum). Love visiting this theater

Movie selection is great, leaning toward film-like more than blockbusters, but still movies most people like. Prices are going rate, not like the Byrd. The theater upstairs at the left side seems a bit cramped in seating; the larger main level theater is fine.
