This theater is a beautiful, well-maintained gem in Western Nebraska. I visited in February of 2010 for a screening of “The Tooth Fairy”…the presentation was excellent. The seating and soundsystem are brand new but the rest of the theater retains a 1940s, red and white decor. The theater features a boxoffice that sits out on the street, a very large lobby and two small balconies that flank the projection booth. Admission to the balcony is higher than general admission. The corner of the lobby near the concession stand features many historic pictures and artifacts from the theater’s history. There is also a beautiful, vertically raising curtain that is still used for every show. Certainly a must see when in the area.
