A good place to watch a movie. Has both regular theater seats, some tables and chairs and some sofas. Food can be ordered and will be delivered to your location. Has two theaters and usually screens current movies and occasionally classics from the past

Went to see Three Billboards there. The theater was very comfortable and there was a nice big screen. We didn’t try the food but you can eat and drink there. We will definite return. They also have National a Theater films there.

Sip quality beer and wine while you watch the movie in a comfy seat! Pizzas and burgers are tasty - salad could be improved for taste and portion size. Good popcorn. Bring earplugs ( sometimes the volume is on the loud side) and dress in...More
