$2 for a matinee show and $3 for all movies after 6pm. It's an older theater but there's 7 or so movies for patrons to choose from so it's great for an entire family.

First to Review

for $2 this place kicked ass! /review =)

Seriously it is the epitome of a last run movie theater... some questionable folks, small theaters with old school style ramped seating... just exactly what you would anticipate from this place when you see it from the outside, if you dont drive right past it like I did twice!

Free parking is about a block and a half away, but be careful and read all of the signs or you WILL get a ticket (no i didnt but I saw the meter maids busily working). They also have a paid lot right behind this place. I didnt check the rates, but I can assure it is more than you will pay for the movie =X

Pro Tip: They do not allow outside food/beverages inside this theater, unless they dont catch ya...

So perfect for those with kids, very short pockets, or just someone who is bored and wants to do something a lil different and out of the norm. I will definitely be back to see more flicks with the munchkin here =) she definitely loves this joint as well...
