Abuzz with excitement, finely dressed patrons entered the lobby beneath chandeliers and vaulted, ornate ceilings rimmed in gold trim. Back then, such opulent theaters were called "movie palaces"—and a trip to one was a thrilling, elegant event. Patio Theater upholds those bygone traditions within its grandly restored theater, which first opened in 1927. Moviegoers today take their seats beneath a soaring, simulated sky awash with twinkling stars and moving clouds. And though the theater revives the majesty of yore, that doesn't mean the technology is antiquated: the theater is equipped with digital screens, movies, and surround sound. In addition to screening current feature films, the theater also shows cult classics such as Indiana Jones and the Temple of Doom and Ferris Bueller's Day Off.

Popcorn and soda keep bodily hungers sated throughout films' airtime and prevent stomach growls from interrupting key dialogue.
