I have been to Northern Lights many times, and am never disappointed. Fairly new movies for cheaper than a regular theatre, and you can eat tasty food! I like that they have beer and wine available as well as a variety of food. They also...More

This place is nice for the realist who wants a good time for a reasonable amount. You can see live comedy shows (as we did this time around) for about $12 and they are ok to good. It always depends on the comedian they have....More
