What a little gem this place is! It's like stepping back into an old school theater. I love going her. they have a bar also and the space between seats if far better than modern theaters.

We love going to the RO because they don't show "run of the mill" movies. The theater is old and in need of repair but Houstonians and surrounding communities love this little gem. The movies are interesting and often eclectic. Price for snacks are a little high but they don't sell in enough volume to reduce the cost. We usually have a snack or a meal at one of the restaurants in the area after the movie.

We went to an afternoon show. It was full and the movie was ok. The seats have seen better days. Needs updating! Does have bar.

They always seem to run the movies I'm most interested in. Different from the newer theaters. It's an old venue but one I never get tired off. They offer senior prices ($7.50) and run three different movies. Seats are comfortable and the sound quality's good. What else do you need!

Been going here for years as has everyone else but it's still a favorite. Little down-on-the-heel but like anything you love for a long time, it's made the better for it. Wonderful throw-back feel to when theaters were grand, in the lower, large theater. Upstairs a bit cramped in the plainer, smaller theaters but it doesn't matter. The bar upstairs finishes out the ambience. Parking can be dicey but it's worth the short walk you might have to take. I hope it's around for another fifty, hundred years.
