This theatre is owned by a prominent local resident, who purchased it because he wanted to provide the community with a movie experience in a real, 1940s era theatre (complete with murals of Puritans!) and to provide a venue to exhibit movies (broadly, "art" movies from Europe and elsewhere, classics and U.S. produced movies with intelligent content) no purely commercial movie venue would show, at reasonable prices. I love this place, and I appreciate the owner's generosity.

Go there yourself and enjoy an experience no longer available anywhere else within driving distance.

Sometimes they have movies that you can't find anywhere else, and at a reasonable price.
