The recliner chairs are so comfortable and make the experience so much better. Staff are always friendly and quick. We really enjoy the movie options and snack options they have available. Happy to have something so close!

Recent renovations make this a great experience. Big, comfy recliners have been added. Owners are involved in the community & offer special features as well as current releases.

For a smaller theater it is very nice. Some of the staff are not all that friendly. The movies are good and i do like the way that the chairs lounge back. That is totally awesome.

The theaters are clean and the reclining seats are amazing! The young family that now owns this business is working hard to make theirs the destination of choice for movie goers. Very enjoyable evening.
