Long layover waiting in the train. Caught the free shuttle to explore and found this place. 10 minute walk back to Union Station after the movie. If you've got a couple hours to kill, it's worth the walk or the ride.

Very comfortable cinema. Smaller size, not a megaplex. Shows mainstream films, arthouse, and revival films. Check for the weekend midnight movies and Sunday "movie and mimosa" matinees. Easiest parking is directly across the street in the parking garage.

The expensive ticket prices are surely 2017 but everything else here feels like you stepped back to 1977. There is a quaint pace here with low key staff and an aura that is less hyped than movie chains. Check out the original piping and ventilation...More

Nice current movies, most projection rooms are nice and comfortable, however a couple of them are very small. Great gourmet popcorn and the ability to drink wine makes this a great local place
