There's movies of all kinds here. It's the best theater around to discover new gems or revisit old favorites. And the popcorn has real butter for less than chain theaters! Give these wonderful people a try!

We went to the Fall Focus Film Festival here. The movies were great. The crowd was outstanding. The theatre is comfortable and beautiful. This is well worth a visit or 10!
