“Old-fashioned 1-screen movie house & concession stand with retro decor & a nostalgic feel. Ticket prices are reasonable as well as the snacks! Great place to see new movie releases!”
“Local artists work of many kinds of medium. Our favorite place to go on First Friday's of each month.”
“A favorite spot for breakfast and lunch. They've been closed due to COVID -- check that they're open before heading over.”
“The outdoor dining atmosphere is great here. Located in the center of town, this is a great place to people watch on "First Friday". First Friday is the 1st Friday of each month when all the local businesses stay open late.”
