Fodor's Review

This theater—where Orson Welles debuted Citizen Kane—originally opened in 1926 as a playhouse and was remodeled in the 1940s into a movie palace. Restored to its former grandeur by the Walt Disney Company, the palatial venue features soaring ceilings and a lavish East Indian motif. Movies are often preceded by live stage or music events.
