The current Vista Theatre shows first run films for a week, two at most. They charge extremely reasonable prices ($7-$8 instead of double that or more) so they draw large crowds. The seating has wide legroom. (I'm 6'5" and people can walk by without me moving.) I saw GONE GIRL there last fall and had a geat time.

Here's one dated 1980, when they were showing x-rated films.
Notice at least one of them is in 3-D, too!

For those interested, I believe the marquee says:

3-D HIT "HEAVY EQUIPMENT'
"BOYNAPPED" (then ?)
AUG. 29 AL PARKER "INCHES" (which is being advertised on the banner above the marquee)

CBD, I'm not necessarily fond of the current rustlike color of the Vista, but at night, which is mostly whenever I see this theater, with the neon and subdued light, it looks fine to me.
