“Just a fun family time”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 15 October 2013

This is a movie theatre with heart. You feel like you are among friends. They have special nights and special events, look at the website for these, i.e. you may get special pricing if you dress as one of the characters in the movie (we did that with a group of teenagers and they had a hoot) Bring your own drink cup and bowl and you get special pricing on the drinks and popcorn, and everytime we are there the owner comes out and tells a joke to everyone before the movie. It is just so much fun and it well also look very familiar if you are a fan of Smallville as they used this in the show!

“Great for fund-raising too.”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 17 September 2013

We spontaneously saw a few movies at Clova theatres. I like it for the price, the fun contests for the children (my son won the choice of a bag of candy or free admission to another movie in the future), and for their popcorn policy of allowing you to bring in your own container for a cheaper price. Clova has also been used by some friends of ours to do fund-raising. My friend invited all her contacts to the Clova theatre to watch a movie on one special day, but at the same time, it was raising money for my friend's cause.

“Great friendly movie experience”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 12 September 2013

I was impressed, it was a fun experience.
The staff was so friendly, you can bring your own bowl for popcorn and they will fill it up for a nominal fee.... what a deal!
Clean, tidy and comfortable seats. Inexpensive on a Tues. just $5.00 ea.
Support this independent movie theater, don't let all the big guys wipe them out!!! One major show per week, Fri. to Thurs. then it changes. Lots of shows for the kids too.

“Always Wonderful!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 31 August 2013

Nothing like a trip to a super cool retro movie theatre! I know it's been around for at least 25 years? I think its still owned and operated by the original family owners. Its not super loud with reclining chairs or anything, but its fun and way less expensive!

“Always a nostalgic Treat”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 16 August 2013

Homey atmosphere, family owned and run. Eco-friendly, bargains if you bring your own popcorn container and drink container.
