Watching a Christmas Carol with family was a real delight. The theater was nice, clean & warm. And the bathrooms were clean. The concessions had reasonably priced snacks. I didn't partake at the bar but it was popular.

I wore casual clothes. Not blue jeans but nice pants and blouse. The men didn't wear coat and tie. Some people were dressed up and some were not. I did not feel out of place not being dressed up. Hope this helps!
