Pros: Location is very convenient if you're already downtown, plenty of open seats and tiered seating provides a good view, cheap matinee and morning prices.

This is an older theater. So don't expect anything to fancy. We were looking forward to a movie but some people in our party didn't feel comfortable sitting in those seats. Like I said it's an older theater. One positive is that it is close...More

Easy to access from Broadway down town, in San Diego. I found this therter's lineup is better than that of usual cinema complex. Sometimes used as a venue of movie festivals.
