This pet-friendly theater is only open on weekends. It, too, has been in operation since 1956 and offers many “classic” features (a playground, car speakers, retro pre-show music) and “modern” features, too (digital projection, movie stereo sound, and concessions). Check their website for each week’s scheduled movies!
