Went for a movie after having not been here for a few years. Affordable prices, medium size theaters with comfortable seating. Alcoholic beverages available.

Fun mid-century modern decor, delicious popcorn, and no better ticket prices in town! Perhaps a bit of delay in the films shown, but can't beat this theatre as the place to go for movies!

the architecture is very unique and interesting. the prices were maybe a bit high, but not too far out of line. The seats were a bit tight and crowded, but was not totally unexpected. The show was ok, but not anything special.

I first went to the Riverview for a local short film contest that a friend was a part of - since then, I've gone many times for movies! Their prices are great - just remember to bring cash, or they have an ATM. They show...More
