The Vintage Movie & Entertainment Theater

Eating at the Country Fisherman in the Heart of Pearl earlier this week, I came across an interesting find.  I spotted a little movie theater in the same strip mall advertising classic movies at 420 Roberts Street.  It is nondescript, off the road, and you wouldn't know it was there unless you walked up on it.  However, it was intriguing.  My lunch partner, who had attended the recent ribbon cutting for the theater told me all about it.  He said they show classic movies at night, and on Saturday's will show old school cartoons for the kids.  I thought it was a neat business that may interest some of my readers.  

The website for the theater is  It may be easier for you to just click here.  There is a wealth of information on the website about show times, substance of the movies being shown, snack food prices, etc.  Presently, all movies are $5.  

Right now, the feature films are Angel and the Badman (starring John Wayne; it was the first film the Duke produced) and Royal Wedding (starring Fred Astaire and Jane Powell); the Friday and Saturday night horror flicks are Atom Age Vampire and Scared to Death (starring Bela Lugosi).
