The Crest was built in 1949. Equipped with widescreen capabilities in 1979, it was one of the first theaters in the country to run “Close Encounters of the Third Kind” in 70mm.
It was expanded to four auditoriums in 1980: two houses were configured with stadium-style seats and high-backed chairs, and two larger houses were constructed to feature conventional seating and large screens.
The theater offered bargain nights in the late 1980s, and they became so successful that the owners decided to keep running “discount programming”.
Tickets are $3. It’s very much a neighborhood theater.
