It's very nice to be able to view first run movies in pleasant clean movie theatre downtown! This location is supposed to serve meals but food choices were limited the day we attended. Still, no fault with facilities or staff.

I watched Moonlight here after it won the Oscar and the cinema was okay-priced and offered a good selection of films. I didn't try the snacks, but they looked okay :).

Love that I can select where to sit in the theater. Also, the crowd is older and you don't have a lot of teenagers hanging around.
