Nice little theater. Weird seating. But you are in the keys so relax. Did smell funky. Theater has about 100 seats. They have round table and some regular theater seat also. May want to get there early or buy tickets online if it a popular movie.

After some fun in the sun, something more laid back seemed in order so I took my teen to see Rogue One. When I walked into the theater, honestly I thought it looked like the scene from Taxi Driver when Robert DeNiro's character walks into the little porn theater. The entrance is dark and leads down this narrow hallway to... More

being marathon the theater has a lot going for it being that it's the only theater for about a hour but it only shows one time at night and the price is good at 8.50 but the theater itself is definitely in need of work,for a small theater it should be more taken care of though,the seats are very uncomfortable...

This is a small independent movie theater. It has small tables and chairs (like a dinner theater),and row seating.very nice for the area.parking can be tight but the movie is reasonable $8.00 for adults. Reasonable priced concessions . You can even get a beer.

A local boat captain recommended this theater to me and said its charming and cheaper than most. They only have one movie selection at a time but that's ok. It perfect for something to do when the weather is bad or a nice night out. The tickets were $8 a piece and we saw the new X-Men movie. They had... More

What talent this small local group has when it performs. The front building houses a small theater and performs great plays with local talent; the back building houses a movie theater which shows the latest movies. Both are worth experiencing. When in town, worth seeing, don't miss out on an entertaining experience.

We go to this small theater every time it shows something we are interested in seeing and that's almost weekly! We can eat our dinner of hot dogs, nachoes and soft pretzels there at the small round tables in comfortable chairs. The theater only holds 100 so go early to one of the two daily showings.

Yes, it is a small theater with cocktail tables and a bar. That is what makes this the most unique theater in the US. Some cities are paying top dollar to sit at tables such as this and be served. I love this theater. The servers and attendants are always so nice and accommodating. They have beer and wine and... More
