This was my first visit and I will absolutely be back! They have great movies, good food, and a good selection of alcohol. The staff is also very helpful.

We sat in the small theater downstairs #9 I think. The seats were like lounge chairs and the aisles were very wide so there was no disturbing anyone when you needed to get up. The movie was terrible but the seats and adult beverages were...More
