We have always loved, for 40 years, having the theater to go to for an inexpensive show. However, they upgraded everything a few years ago. While the picture and sound quality is outstanding, they put in new seating, adding a few rows. The result is...More

The new seats are comfortable, but there isn't much leg room, and yes, the popcorn isn't popped on site, BUT, who can deny its charm as the local DIGITAL $3 movie house. The new digital format gives quality picture and sound. Always a nice variety...More

You can't beat the ETH for an inexpensive and fun night out! Waiting a bit for a film or seeing a movie again won't break the bank and helps keep the tradition alive in town. I've been coming here all my life and it's homey...More
