This is a beautiful little venue that hosts movies, meeting, etc. They host very little live theater though. Fredonia has so much theatrical talent and this location would be the ideal home for such a group to perform in.

On Tuesdays/Saturdays you can see a well selected movie. The seats are not comfortable but the movie is worth it as some choices are not found at many of the larger cinemas in the area.
