This is like going back in time to a local, one screen theater. It is very clean, family run theater with very comfortable seats, great sound and big screen. Thoroughly enjoyable.

For a small location it is good to try out 1 time. Nothing is clean about this place and has been this way my whole life. After going to other movie theaters near by I would not go back here. Sorry for the bad review...More

How can you beat the friendly owner selling you two for Tuesday tickets with the popcorn machine popping away. This place is not a luxurious theater but rather charming in its old style seats and several tables for your take in dinner.

This was my first time at this little theater. I went to the closing night reception for their film festival and also a movie. I understand that the people at the cinema choose the films themselves. I believe this one (Casa Grande) was an award...More
