We watched a movie and it was the worst. The food area didn't have sodas. The bathroom was filthy and the sound for the movie was not that good either!!! And the ticket to watch a movie is way too expensive.

Though we didn't see a movie on this trip, the Dreamland holds many memories for me as a boy with my friends. It was the place to go in town for movies. So happy it is still around!

Planning a party here guarantees a wonderful event. The view is amazing from the deck, the inside living space is bright and the kitchen is a caterer's dream.
