Owner description: Classic art deco and neon movie theater.
Reviewed 3 September 2014

From the sweeping vertical pink-ish marquee to the old-style snack bar and the neon-lighted swirly ceiling inside, this theatre harkens back to the heyday of movie theatres- when going to the movies was more important than what was showing onscreen. It's not too hard to imagine someone like Spencer Tracy with a young ingenue in a gown, walking down one of the aisle of this venue.
Hint: The seats from the middle on to the front have more legroom!

I was traveling with my 14 old which is a challenge. Those golden years have passed. Now she merely tolerates her mom. The first signs of excitement came across her face when we were walking through the downtown area and she saw "The Fault in Our Stars" was playing. I was excited that she was excited!
The Fremont is a "real" theater. One main auditorium, curtains farm e the screen and the hall is colorfully and artfully restored to it's original state. Beautiful. I was only hoping that the curtains would close and open before the main feature. This will be one of my fondest memories from the whole adventure.

The theater was very intriguing as an historical place to see. Once inside, we saw that the old theater is just that and very run down. The price was way too high. $21.00 for 2 people.

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.
