Great theater! Love the size of the theaters & the people that work the concession stand. They are ever so cordial & helpful. Love that they use real butter on their popcorn. Great place to stay for a double feature.

Stopped here to see 'Shape of Water' last weekend and this is a fun little theater. The seats were very comfortable and seemed to have a really good sound system also. Good place to see a movie.
