It's the Pie Capital of Minnesota!
Attend Pie Day -- First Friday of August.
When I go to the Riverview, I feel like I'm going to the movies. When I go to a multiplex, I feel like I'm sitting in the home theater listening room at an electronics discount store. (Someday, the screens in people's "home theaters" are going to be bigger than the screens in the mulitplex theaters. Probably more seats, too.)
The Riverview Theater is in Minneapolis, just across the river from St. Paul's Highland Park neighborhood. Take your kids and show them what going to the movies is supposed to be like. The style's not retro -- it's genuine. The place hasn't changed much in 50 years. Sign up for a weekly e-mail update of what's playing.
