I have an office around the corner. Concessions is sadly lacking. The ""TRUE BUTTER"" popcorn ""may"" be true. Staff is lazy and unmotivated. Can't wander between art and regular theatres, very lazy attitude of ticket takers, it's just a pretty good theatre that ends up offering a very lousy experience. For matinee theatregoers, you will have pretty good privacy, as attendance is very weak. For evening suburban theatregoers, I believe you will be fine but unimpressed. Positive - it IS the edge of downtown Evanston, and with validated parking - garage parking, you can make an evening out of downtown Evanston, which has always felt safe and comfortable, if not friendly, to me, as a long time near-local.
