online. With three changes weekly (Su/M/T, W/H, F/Sa), double features 99% of the time, plus “Reservoir Dogs” every Saturday at Midnight, this place is tough to beat. They show everything from recent films you probably missed, to classics you’ve seen a dozen times but maybe never in a theater. The pairs are almost always themed (stars, directors, or subject matter) and it’s rare I don’t want to stay for both shows.Recently replaced all the seats (except the sacred first row) and while now it’s easy to sit through those double features, it would be nice if they’d get stereo and clean up the screen a little. Sometimes prints are iffy, as are the changeovers. I wouldn’t go for big epic actioners; smaller pics feel better here. But for the number of movies that come through here, this place goes on the essential list.
