If you go, expect being treated poorly. Leave about 30 minutes just for parking. It's far away from the building and is also hard to find. My advice, go elsewhere - there are plenty of small theaters that actually want you to come.

Go to Spritz Burger at Broadway and Grace. Great gourmet burgers and sandwiches, special dishes and good vegetarian plates too
