I really like Cinecenta. It's not as flashy as the more modern movie theatres, but what it lacks in comfy seating and free parking, it makes up in cheaper rates and interesting movie selections! Some family-friendly movies are screened every month, and they often show neat documentaries that are not available elsewhere.

A great mix of old and new movies, indie, cult, kids, and hollywood movies. Nice little theatre with a reputation for it's fabulous popcorn. Movies are cheap - and even cheaper if you are a student. There's also a huge variety as they have a different movie every few days. It's really nice to have a different kind of choice around town.
