Awesome historic movie theater. Much like the Saenger theaters, very ornate. It has become a Christmas tradition to come watch It’s A Wonderful Life in the old place. Very fun, plus a bar that serves drinks and food.Justin Taylor
The building is absolutely stunning. It feels like you’re stepping back in time as soon as you enter the theatre. The cartoons, sing-along, and organ performance before the show is a rare and fun experience. I could just sit in this theatre for hours admiring how beautiful it is. It is such a great piece of history for this city. They have parking in a lot across the street designated for the theatre visitors, they have plenty of security and the staff is very friendly!Brittany Wolch
