Built in the 1940s from the remnants of a closed movie theater, The Crest's beautiful gilt interior swoops and soars in an Art Deco style. Now subdivided into three theaters and equipped with modern technology, the features are anything but mainstream. You can see Hitchcock, animation festivals, 50s science fiction, and almost any movie made in the last century. The Crest also hosts a wide array of comedy acts, concerts, and political events, and it can be rented for private parties. The long and colorful history of this venue is shown in the collection of theater memorabilia and artifacts on display in the lobby.
