Theater was a typical Regal theater built in the 1990’s, this one opened by 1997. Lobby concession stands where removed and replaced with kitchens. The theme of the theater is now the classic drive-in movie theater with a 1950’s look. Lobby seating is 1950’s front end couches with drive in speakers pumping out music. As you walk into the main entrance, graphics show classic cars around a drive in screen.

Down the lobby halls are classic movie star picutres and large wall graphics with screens from American drive-ins. The stadium theater seating was redone with counters to accomodate the food and beverage being served while watching the movie. Soft sculptures in theater also depict classic drive-in theaters and cars.
