Unfortunately, the screen did go dark for a short time but after the reopening in 1997, two more screens were added for a total of four screens. In 2004 the theater received projection and sound upgrades, indoor seating was installed and SRS surround sound was added to all four screens. As of 2012 the admission is $18 a car, if you bring in outside food/beverage there is an additional $2 charge. Also be sure to try their Bosco sticks which are cheese filled breadsticks topped with Parmesan cheese.
