This was our favorite theater. We would drive from Thompsonville on Monday night, since they always started their best films on Sunday, and there were few people there on Monday. For a family, it was great. Saw “An American in Paris,” there, and remember young men (high school age) making fun of Gene Kelly in his tight pants in the great ballet number.
