That movie was like a James Bond / terminator type suspense film about aliens terra forming... More

Small theater in shopping mall, older with first run features. Well maintained, and you can also find independent films.

Cinema Arts shows a great mix of new release blockbuster and quirky art house movies. The price is reasonable, staff is friendly. They have a nice snack bar with the best movie theater popcorn I have ever had. The screens are old school, nothing real fancy but just right for the movies they show.

They always have great mainstream movies, but also a nice selection of independent and offbeat films. There is something for everyone. The owner is a dedicated proprietor who takes great pride in giving his customers a first rate experience. He often polls the audience after each preview to get their reactions, and he has a great sense of humor. If... More

This movie theatre has a mix of recent releases and outstanding foreign firms. Although it's an older theatre it is well maintained and has recently had some upgrades. Popcorn is a treat. Sr. discounts.

Attended an evening showing of "Friendship", last showing in area. Flick not as good as expected but timing of showing excellent. Auditoriums are adequate, sound system excellent, admission reasonable for seniors, lobby clean, staff cordial, restrooms exceptional, goodies counter stocked and prices competitive. Being gait challenged enjoyed not having to preselect seating. Flooring in mall very attractive but hard to... More

Love it on Saturdays when Mark comes into the theater offering popcorn refills and asks our opinion on up coming movies.
