They have remodeled this theatre and the chairs on main level are very comfortable. The snack bar is reasonably priced and it is staffed mostly by volunteers. Awesome place to go! They serve drinks too!

Good popcorn. Blacklist shown earlier than shown on TV. Jon Bokenkamp, the producer and writer skypes with the audience after the show. What a plus! Great of movies that do not come to the local theaters. Can have wine and local craft beer.

A local group has restored this theatre to its original glory. They show older movies or host special features but charge a reduced rate. It's staffed 100% by volunteers, so families will sometimes work together. They even offer alcoholic beverages to enjoy during the show!
