I love this independent theatre. Small and intimate. The owner is great. Chairs are comfy and if you arrive early, you might get a recliner!

It was a very pleasant surprise to find the Crescent, especially since it was playing one of this year's most highly awarded films. There were recliners down front if you wanted to sit close to the screen, as well as normal seating for 200-300 people....More
