We have always loved, for 40 years, having the theater to go to for an inexpensive show. However, they upgraded everything a few years ago. While the picture and sound quality is outstanding, they put in new seating, adding a few rows. The result is...More

What a great Newtown treasure! It’s quite the find. All shows are the same price -$3! (For many years it was $2) Affordable movies! And in most cases, recent movies. A family can actually go to a theatre to see a movie and not go...More

The new seats are comfortable, but there isn't much leg room, and yes, the popcorn isn't popped on site, BUT, who can deny its charm as the local DIGITAL $3 movie house. The new digital format gives quality picture and sound. Always a nice variety...More
