“MOVIES MEMORIES”
Reviewed 10 August 2012

I can remember great films I saw here, Star Wars, The Godfather, Apocalypse Now, Top Gun, a few Gene Wilder films and, of course, Barry Levinson's. My memory escapes me, however, always chose this spot if it was a special movie. Not sure of what they show now.

“Old style”
Reviewed 20 May 2012

I have a thing for old theaters and find it sad that they aren't as revered as the new ones. This one almost was closed a few years ago and I'm glad that it didn't. We enjoy movies here and will always choose here over the new places.

“Awesome historic venue”
Reviewed 20 February 2012

Beautiful old fashioned movie theater (the mens lounge is way groovy) with nice BIG screen. The main downside is that seats are pretty historic as well-anything over 2 hours and my back is not happy.

“I Never Understood the Hype about This Place”
Reviewed 19 February 2012

This place was interesting because it had an interior that some of us remember from our youth (one big screen in a sizable room, with some ornate and warm decor features). It was also was imbedded in a neighborhood, rather than part of a distinct shopping/entertainment complex. Otherwise, it was never a big draw for me as a regular destination, but I could see it fitting in well as part of an evening out that included dinner at one of the nearby restaurants, whatever film that is showing, and then perhaps drinks at a nearby bar.

“Show time”
Reviewed 10 February 2012

Wonderful old building, great movie house, wish they could move it to Bel Air so more people would go, not a great location to drive to but worth it when you get there, too far for us
