It's an old-timey theater with old-timey seats, not the stadium seating. The prices are amazing, especially for over age 62 at $2.00 each plus a small popcorn each included. They show movies that have been out for two to three weeks usually. Nice young people...More

Okay, so it does not have the largest auditoriums in the world. And it only has two auditoriums and not 6, 12 or 24. And it doesn't have those nice super deluxe power reclining chairs that will let you fall asleep. Oh, and it doesn't...More

I would say about 100 in each auditorium. There is one center aisle, so it is easy to get in and out. You can not beat the prices. Two of us with the free popcorn each and we buy a large soda is less than $7.50.
