A welcome addition to a revitalized downtown. Very spacious and comfortable with a large screen and excellent sound. Bargain tickets and concessions are a plus for families.

I'm so glad to have this theater with a classic feel in my hometown. Unbelievably affordable and really good theater snacks (that are also at reasonable prices). Cherry on top is the fact that is located on historical Main Street.

We are so glad that the building was converted into a theater in 1940 downtown. We have one of most beautiful main streets and the community support makes it even better!

Most shows are $4 per ticket. Occasionally we have a special event and the prices are different. In that case, we post the prices online in advance.
