Currently being that we're both a bit long in the tooth, the wife and I decided to stop in to catch a flick. The atmosphere and surroundings haven't changed for many a year. And why should it, it's clean as a whistle, well maintained through...More

The price to see a popular movie is great! The popcorn is also inexpensive and the place feels homey including hearing the trains when they go by. Where can you get movie and popcorn for less than 8$?

Old fashioned theater with modern sound & seating. Fair prices. Much character in lobby and bathrooms. Close to railroad to hear train whistles during movies. Love the recent older movies shown from the 80's

This is an old theater (I went there as a child), but still is in good condition. When you missed a movie when it first came out you can catch it here. Cost is very affordable and they have $1 & $2.00 popcorn. They occasionally...More
