Great acoustics in this old movie theater. They serve drinks! The place is very old but is well kept up. I always look forward to going.

Off street parking is free after 8.. so that’s a nice bonus. Parallel parking, but not that awful squeezed up close kind. Theatre itself: Acoustics were fine but kind of cramped seating. Drinks and snacks available at a relatively reasonable cost. The neighborhood seems fine.....More

First visit to the theatre and was pleasantly surprised. The sound was good and visibility to the stage was great. You have to travel downstairs to the bathroom. They sold wine, beer, water and soda. Hotdogs and chips available too. For the upper rows a...More

I had the pleasure of seeing Harry Styles perform here. The theater is beautiful, and a great size to see an artist up close. The acoustics are fantastic. The only negative is the traffic and parking. I strongly encourage arrving quite a bit early before...More
