If you’re expecting a cineplex experience stick to the mall bub...it’s not IMAX! But, it is a wonder little theatre with original seating and an old school feel. The concession is limited but there is a selection. The entire place smells like freshly popped popcorn.

Took my son to see Thor last night. This was the first time we have gone there at night and not to the matinee in a while. This is not our beloved Glen Theater anymore. Prices have gone up...a lot. It was $8.00 for adults...More

Used to be the best kept secret for local moviegoers! All has changed now. They will not even accept the movie passes I purchased last Christmas for my wheelchair-bound disabled son. When I asked them if they would they said flatly "No -- take it...More
