July 2008 – finally, updates! The theater list should be accurate now, but I have not yet done the phone numbers, new web links, etc. I also bet the ticket prices have gone up in nine years. If you have any details, feel free to leave them in the comments!

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.

I can remember a time when where we went to the movies was just as important as the movies we went to see .... From the moment moviegoers arrived to buy their tickets, there was a sense of something special, a feeling that to step inside was to enter another time and place. - Gene Kelly
