Highly recommend this place. Not a bad seat in the theater. A great place to see a movie or catch a live act. Prices are extremely reasonable. Has a nice little bar. An all around great place. Thank you Edwardsville for restoring this venue!

Locals grew up viewing movies on the BIG screen and you can again. Also hosts live bands, comedy, etc. Varied schedule. Seats redone so all are comfortable. Limited alcohol available.
