We were fortunate to watch a film in the upstairs showroom, which is more of comfortable, cozy sitting room with a great screen and sound system, then a typical theater. It was an incredible, intimate experience that we can't wait to return for.

This place is wonderful, 3 (?) small theater rooms, one with living room lounge chairs; even the snacks are special. Right next door for after the movie is one of the 10 best ice cream shops in NJ.
