Renovations Are Under Way

Our theater refurbishment project to improve all three of our original auditoriums on the ground floor is under way. The overhaul includes installing new seats, increasing legroom, improving access and comfort, upgrading the flooring, and changing the seating layout in two theaters to ensure moviegoers an optimal viewing experience. We can’t wait for the final unveiling when it’s done later this spring, and until then you can stay updated on the renovations here on this page.

As a reminder, during the renovations, weekday matinees will not be scheduled and our gallery space will be closed. Matinee screenings will continue on weekends.
