It's a very old theatre with narrow winding dark halls to get to the right movie room. The atmosphere adds to your movie experience and just makes it more fun!

I don't even know what to say about this theater other than you have to go and experience it for yourself. When I was little, we were fascinated with the awesome ceiling in the theaters. It is the old town feel of a movie experience. There is nothing like it.

We enjoyed an evening at the Fremont, seeing a movie, having drinks and of course some popcorn. This theater is typical of those of a bygone era. That was where one went to enjoy two current main movie events, a comedy and the coming attractions.
I hope they never tear it down but find a way to keep it to remind us of a less complex period in America.

The Fremont has a really nice sign and old fashioned ticket booth. Beyond that, it is just and old theatre in need of refurbishing. Sound system OK. Seats are a bit uncomfortable but adequate. Pretty good legroom.

This Art Deco theater is a Central Coast icon. I do have to say it is a bit run down but so worth going to. It takes me back to a time when going to the movies was an event. Even if your movie isn't so great you'll love the amazing architecture of this beautiful one screen theater in the heart of San Luis Obispo.
