What a fun theatre! Went for the Star Trek triple feature - 3 movies in one day. They've got some couches on the balcony. Lots of fun posters and decorations. Excellent snacks.

The theatre is breathtaking when you walk in and they play a really interesting selection of movies. Make sure you check out the couches in the back section - best seats in the house!
