    We had two theaters in our town: the Isis and the Sipe. One screen each.

    The films currently showing at the Enzian aren't much to write home about unless you are into retro stuff (which we aren't) but they also have some great independent films or films that aren't widely shown in mainstream theatres.

    It's the experience more than anything. The menu there is really nice!

    I would love go one of those midnight showings of Rocky Horror Picture Show, that I've heard so much about. :D

    The menu really is good, Billie. It would be a great place for Rocky Horror!! The seating is cool, we reserve a table. Like I said, we aren't into retro (reruns by any other name) and that is what is playing right now (since Milk ended) but they do have nice films throughout the year.

    We like their film festivals too. The Florida Film Festival features Cat Cora. :9: We are too excited to be going to THAT! :D :D (Yeah, it's always back to food with us).

    I guess I like both. The stadium seating at the new theaters is the best imo. No more 6'4 dudes (like my husband) blocking the views, plus they seem roomier with the lift up arm rests in case you want to snuggle with your kid or better half.

    But the old ones do have such charm. We have one in town called the Keith-Albee. I tried to find a good pic to post here but the ones on google were all tiny. It's huge & very old & has a very spooky feel to it. The bathrooms are in the basement & i would never go to them alone, lol. It's now being used for live performances & very few at that because...you guessed it.... a cineplex came into town & shut it plus two other small theaters down. Sometimes progress is rough.

    I have no memory of intermissions or ice cream ladies. When we were at Sci Fi my husband & i were discussing the intermission thing. He remembers them.
