I've seen many great films here, of various types. I don't buy the snacks, and sometimes it's not particularly impressive seating. I have also watched special screenings of newly-released or not-yet-released films. If you're a filmmaker, this site is really quite adequate for your screening...More

Just love this theater! Comfortable seats, reasonable ticket prices, buy in advance option. Small place, with 3 screens of very different sizes (phone to see where your movie is showing if you care). Cute old-timey ads and announcements. Beer and wine in the lobby. Eclectic...More

They show an expertly curated selection of current mainstream and indie films. Movie theaters are tucked creatively into a gorgeous old building - upstairs and down.

Very old but nice cinema. Clean, cozy and small. Sometimes they have movies that other theatres don’t have.

Wonderful experience, stepping back in time to yesteryear's style of theater. We saw Dunkirk 70mm film there recently. It was as if we were actually there in the cockpit of the Spitfire.
