It's taken me a bit to showcase this nice article about the owner of the Prytania Theater. We saw "Willie Wonka and the Chocolate Factory" last week and "Mary Poppins" this past Saturday. I believe the older gentleman who introduces the matinees and also took our ticket when we went to see "Inception" is the same man described in this article. Wonderful chap. Wonderful theater.
The Prytania reminds me of the Brattle Theater in Cambridge but it isn't artsy at all. The Brattle isn't pretentious but some people think it is. The Prytania is anything but pretentious. It's just a place to escape the slings and arrows of the real world for a while. Current fare (we say Toy Story 3 here) and classics share screen time. I have two thumbs and I point them both heavenwards when reviewing the Prytania Theater.
