    This excellent theater, last of the large screen venues, will be closed and refurbished into smaller screens, reportedly along the lines of the Alamo Brewhouse theater chain.

    This theater has a huge screen and reasonable prices. Just remember to bring cash because they don't take plastic.

    One of the best theaters in town! Throwback to the good ole days of large screens, slope-floor seating, and reasonably priced concessions. Largest non-IMAX screen in the state and great THX sound.
