The theater also had real authentic glowing red leather theater seats that could fully recline backwards with cup holders and there was several rows of these seats with each row going up higher than the next.

Not to forget their was a classic, old fashioned red and gold trimmed popcorn machine completed with a butter dispenser on the side of the machine.
