I have to give the downtown theatre 5 stars just because it is so special and unique. The atmosphere is laid back (what other theatre will give you hand made "I owe you" tokens for your popcorn?). The movie is sometimes late (depending on the number of people waiting for their popcorn), the popcorn isn't even the best, but no one even cares as they catch up with friends and neighbors before the show. It is a breath of fresh air and whenever I go I feel like I am transported back in time to when life was simpler. OH! I can't forget the wonderful gentleman that is always at the counter! He is quiet and kind and adds as much to the experience as anything. (The $3 price is wonderful also) I love our theatre!

I personally don't care about the toursim aspect of Mount Airy. While I enjoy the "Old Time" feeling of this theatre, it's basically just a cheap night out for my husband and myself. The movies they show are usually older movies (second run).

Downtown Cinema Theater is an old movie house. Its operation is subsidized by the Surry Arts Council, and includes FREE Staurday morning LIVE music - bluegrass, old time and country - which is simulcast onto the local radio station, WPAQ. People actually break out and dance at the hoe-down tunes. SO worth it - and they also have cheap movies during the week. Great tourist visit spot.
