Locally owned theater. Comfortable, renovated a few years ago. Reasonably priced snack bar. Good sound system. Intimate theater, not like a big movies chain. Just one screen. Specialize in quality foreign films and lesser know but high quality movies.

Tidewater residents are lucky to have this wonderful theatre which features both films found in the chain theatres and films found nowhere else in this area. In Norfolk foreign films in English of other languages can only be found here. Popcorn and drinks are relatively...More
