    Check out their Summer Movie Series. You will never imagine how much fun you can have watching classic movies in such a fine theater. The audience is pretty loud and enthusiastic about the movies.

    If the tickets are a bit pricey for you and you're a student, don't worry! Student rush tickets are available day of the performance for a reduced rate. Make sure to call ahead to check availability

    Go to the restroom downstairs, and if you just want a drink, also go downstairs for the short line.

    I sat in "Mary's seat" last night by accident. I was overcome with chills twice as I sat there. Then found out I had sat in her seat. No joke.

    Seating is not comfortable at all. If your tall, expect your knees to rest on the seat in front of you.

    The parking lot across Beale is pay-at-the-machine. Don't give cash to anyone unless you are intending to be charitable.
