The shows are second run and you can see them at home, but the loungers are so comfortable, the screen is full size and sound is good. Ticket price $2.75 before 5:30, $3.50 after. Pop corn good too.

My first visit to Picture Show movie theatre. Very reasonable price. BEST movie seats ever, Comfy recliners you can put your feet up. Theatre and seats were clean, staff was friendly. Not first run movies but no big deal for me. Highly recommended.

We have gone a number of times to the Picture Show and we have not been in the same auditorium twice. Each time that we have gone, the auditorium that we were in had the powered reclining seats.
