Warning to Public – Many of the films we play contain adult content, and show violence, blood, nudity, etc. Most of the films are either rated R, or are unrated. Because of this, both of the movies rooms are 18+. Children are only allowed if they are with a parent or guardian, and are not allowed to be left alone. If you or your child may find this kind of content offensive or not appropriate, do not bring them to the Movie Rooms. We are not responsible for, and will not be monitoring if a child is in the movie room without a guardian. We are not a movie theater nor child care provider.
