The Pioneer Theatre represents all that was good about the good old days. Fair prices, wholesome entertainment and friendly folks are the hallmarks of this theater that dates back to 1918. (The original building burned, and this one was built in 1934.) The theater runs one first-run movie per week, with show times at 8 p.m. nightly. All the movies are suitable for families. Tickets cost $7, and the snack prices are the best you’ll find anywhere. (We mean it — $5 is usually all you need for popcorn, candy and a drink!) Locals cherish this theater and go even if they’re not particularly interested in the movie. The owners recently installed state of the art digital equipment, so the picture and sound are amazing.
