technical difficulties. We were watching Capote (an average movie) when during the last 15 minuties of the movie the screen went blank and we could only hear the movie. We never reached the end of the movie. The manager gave us some kind of refund ticket so we can another movie for free another time. But the theatre had a horrible atmosphere. Not worth $8.50.
The only place in town for high-end art films and foreign films tugging gently on your heartstrings..
Plush, tacky carpet that never looks quite clean runs throughout. Follow it from the wide front hall where you can purchase snacks, or visit the art-deco bathrooms back to one of three screens, located down hallways that branch off to either side, wrapping around the viewing rooms in the middle. Try to catch your flick when it's new and playing in the big center room; some of the seats rock, and the floor is angled very sharply so you never get blocked by the person sitting in front of you.
Tower's moved away from showing super-cutting-edge works by filmmakers like Gregg Araki, in favor of foreign film Oscar nominees, lots of British films about ladies drinking tea and teens running wild, and indies distributed by the big studios that you won't find anywhere else in town.
Thank You!!. Finally........no cell phones and no chatter beyond the world created by the movie......thanks!!
What's up with the projector?. I think there is something wrong with the projector in the main, big theater. The movies look darker than they should. Also, in one of the small theaters, you can hear the outside traffic.
