Golly, I really enjoyed seeing a movie at this 1940's single-screen movie house. Check out Riverside's storied past and architectural significance--or just dig the space-race "New Frontier" vibe from the lobby/lounges and concession stand. The best part was the gradual sloping theatre seating (including upgraded...More

We went here to watch a movie tonight and were pleasantly surprised. The theatre has discount seats and is older, but has been nicely updated. The theatre is huge and the seats are comfortable and include cup holders. This was a great place to see...More

Saw the movie "Wonder". It was one of the best movies I have seen in a very long time. The Riverview Theatre is really awesome. One thing about the theatre seating area, that all should know, is that the seats are anchored to a slanted...More

Went for a movie after having not been here for a few years. Affordable prices, medium size theaters with comfortable seating. Alcoholic beverages available.

Fun mid-century modern decor, delicious popcorn, and no better ticket prices in town! Perhaps a bit of delay in the films shown, but can't beat this theatre as the place to go for movies!

the architecture is very unique and interesting. the prices were maybe a bit high, but not too far out of line. The seats were a bit tight and crowded, but was not totally unexpected. The show was ok, but not anything special.

Shared a new experience with the kids - we really enjoyed the "old time" atmosphere - and you just can't beat the price! Fun and great service - what a gem this place is. They all said they will definitely come back again!!
