“Getting Frayed Around the Edges”
Reviewed 5 March 2014

The movie theater shows all the first run films one would expect. However, the seats are worn and the overall feel of the theater is dated. If you go to theaters in Williston or better yet, outside VT, you cannot help but see that this theater is in need of a makeover. We still go here but would really enjoy it more if it the chairs were better. Also, they divided one theater into two which is little better than sitting in my living room, except my couch is much more comfortable!.

“Old fashioned cinema experience”
Reviewed 28 August 2013 via mobile

Went to see Disney Planes with the family, ok film but great old fashioned atmosphere in his ordinal picture house type cinema. We were in a tiny screen as it was not the main feature and there were only two other people in even for block buster there were only half a dozen old timers so felt more like a personal screening. Great

“Expensive”
Reviewed 30 May 2013

The theater is old but charming. We were glad they had a theatre and was surprised to see they had 4 or 5 movies showing as the theater doesn't look that large. It's not new so no fancy seats. We were charged $8 for a senior and $11.50 for a regular ticket. It was suppose to be 3-D but the movie didn't seem like 3-D. This seems to be the same case in all the theatres not just this one. Thought the $11.50 was too steep and the value not worth a pretend 3-D. Until you've really seen 3-D on the big screen (Museum of Science and Industry Chicago) you will know what I'm talking about. Until the theaters can show that spectacular vision they shouldn't charge extra.
