You just have to go see a movie at the Monarch Theatre. The seats are deep and comfortable, the popcorn is great, and the movie prices are lower than anywhere else. Walk through the front doors and you will immediately be transported into another time

Wonderful restored century old downtown theatre. Best popcorn in town. Movies are shown 5 nights a week. You can combine a meal at a nearby cafe with your movie ticket for a nice evening out. The theatre can be rented for special events as well.

We had seen Rogue One twice already, so when it played at the Monarch it was a must-attend. This time we took the six year old, who quickly fell asleep, as the movie played well past his bedtime. The price was very reasonable, and so...More
