Bargain Days will be every Tuesday and Wednesday with all seats, all shows, all day only $4.50.

Other changes will be the age policy during certain times. Please check our website for details, but specifically, there will be no age limits for any specific times. We will enforce no children aged 6 and under allowed to “R” rated films after 6:00PM daily. Otherwise, except for the Motion Picture Association of America ( guidelines of anyone 17 years of age and younger must be accompanied by a parent or legal guardian to an “R” rated feature, everyone is welcome at all times.

With online reservations, individuals, couples, families or groups will be able to assure great reserved seating for any movie, at any time.
