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)
, 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.
