While parking can be a bit of a problem, this is a really great venue. Who cares that they don't have stupid reclining chairs when the ambiance takes you back to the heyday of theater (maybe the '20s)? Real butter on the popcorn, too.

This neighborhood isn't as glitzy as Elmwood Village, but it's more interesting and more reasonably priced. Your choice of food includes Greek, Italian and Chinese, of course, but also Iraqi, Indian (two different types) and some places that are just hard to classify. For fans of architecture there is the Martin House complex designed by Frank Lloyd Wright about a... More

Great little theater. It is a real gem that has been maintained with care. Definitely worth walking into the past. The list of movies includes avant guard, classics, and some recent independent films. If you have never seen an old time movie theater, you are in for a real treat. It is an experience in itself.

The refurbished North Park Movie Theater is right on the Hertel St. strip and fits right in. The marquee has been preserved and is a plus to the area.. The seats are very comfortable, and the decor is stunning. The murals and statuary have been lovingly brought back to life. Bathrooms have been updated. Personnel are friendly.

From diners and dives to fine dining. Humble homes to the mansions of the mid last century this is the area to be.

Many new restaurants and specialty shops opening continually. Great walking area as basically contained in a few blocks. Walking is preferred as downside is a great lack of parking most of which is on the surrounding streets.
