  1. A teacher of mine in High School said she worked there as a teen and one night, as they were cleaning up after close, they heard a man screaming and cursing in one of the two second floor viewing rooms. They ran up to the source to hear continuous ranting and banging coming from the projection booth. Upon entering the LOCKED room, they found it to be suddenly quiet and empty. Years later, I went to see a movie with a friend. We were the only two in the room upstairs to the right of the stairs, in an aisle halfway up. A good chunk of the movie played and I started getting weird gusts of cold air and a static feeling on my left calve(I was the one sitting on the side of the stairs). Then I see the black figure of a man standing at the end of the aisle, facing toward the screen. I continued to see that same figure walking first down the stairs, then up. For some reason, my friend had no idea what I was talking about, other than the gusts of air. I’ve also felt my shirt tugged in the lobby and something weird happens in the ladies room. Like, noises or coughs in the stall next to you when there’s no one there. It’s one of my favorite places, but it is definitely haunted.
