The Davis Theater has tons of charm and character, but not very many modern amenities. If you don't care about stadium seating and surround sound, though, definitely check this place out. The concessions are dirt cheap, and so are the tickets. There are tons of great restaurants nearby, so it's a great spot for a fun dinner/movie date.
Parking is difficult if the lot on the LS corner is full.
PROS: cheap tickets and concessions, lots of character
CONS: uncomfortable seats, doesn't show lots of films at once
Part of the charm and appeal to me is that it's not a chain, or a cold, impersonal mega theater. Family owned theaters like this are a dying breed that should be celebrated. I will admit that the screen is on the small side and the sound system is not state of the art, but the prices are very reasonable and it has vintage photos and pictures lining the walls and takes you back to a simpler, happier time. The theater features all new releases for a lot less than the bigger theatres.
PROS: Plenty of charm and character
CONS: Parking can be very difficult, restrooms are very old
If you want to be taken back to the 1960's but see the latest special effects movie you're in luck. The screen is about the size of most big screen t.v.'s these days and the sound is horrible. They do show all the latest releases and if the other theatres are sold out of tickets to your flick go here and see it. The have one plus, they have really good popcorn. It maybe that the popper has been used for decades, I don't know but it's great.
PROS: Always tickets available
CONS: Crummy screen and sound
