We really enjoy the Magic Lantern. It is within easy walking distance of our house, as well as local restaurants and of course Reny's.

We saw a movie at the Magic Lantern Theatre and enjoyed sitting in the balcony. Unique experience and a nice change of pace during our vacation of sightseeing and driving. Definitely recommend seeing a movie here on a rainy day or otherwise.

Pub fare with good menu but poor quality. On a busy night food came quickly but was undercooked. Thyme mixed in with mayo on a blt was unappetizing.
