Boedecker Theater at the Dairy Center

Boedecker Theater at the Dairy Center

Time is on the Boedecker’s side: The intimate, state-of-the-art film palace opened at the Dairy Center years ago, so it includes the most modern of amenities. Its sixty seats are plush rockers, each with four feet of leg room, and the theater also boasts 5.1 Surround Sound and HD DLP projection that rival better sophisticated home-theater equipment. Throw in a well-plotted schedule, with films ranging from hard-to-find classics to more recent must-sees, as well as a sprinkling of live opera broadcasts, themed series and a concession counter that sells beer and wine, and you’ve got a night out that’s more comfortable than the one you might spend on your own couch.
