We came here to watch "The Room" as we got told it was hilarious. And it's definitely something very different haha! I would recommend doing it once. The movie itself is so terrible (though I think that is the point) and you get spoons to throw at the screen and everyone pretty much yells the entire movie, which is funny and annoying at the same time.. But admittedly I don't think you can sit through this entire movie and watch it seriously.
Step back in time to this elegant Art Deco movie house, which offers the latest movies and also is one of the venues for the annual Alliance Francaise film festival,( you can watch recent French films with subtitles).
I love Art Deco architecture so it's always a joy to be here. Snack bar is pretty good. Parking behind, though it can be hard to get something for over two hours. On a weekend you can park on the very busy main road at the front.
A unique experience.
