It's nice to have a movie theatre in the area for those on budget. Sure, the movies aren't first releases, but these days movies come out so much quicker! We like to visit Northern Lights on their once a month Comedy Nights...only $10 for 2...More

This place proves that going to the movies can still be affordable and they up the experience by having tables and beer/wine. They're also very supportive of our veterans -- something extremely important to me. Keep doing what you're doing!
