My wife and I went to see an old movie here. Great experience. Cheap price, cheap popcorn, refurbished. Like you step back in time. The organist comes out of the stage. Awesome. We will go back.

Stanford Memorial Church

Reviewed By wahine1 - Palo Alto, United States

This Church is remarkable. The stained glass windows are so well done with stories behind them. The structure is art in itself.So many events take place here because the atmosphere is calm yet there seems to be a wonderful energy there as well.. , "Mem Chu" is how the Memorial Church is referred to by most in the area. It is worth the trip to learn about the history that goes with it.

The musuem is relatively new and is tucked away on a side street off Charleston with OSH and REI just steps away. This museum is called the Foster because it displays watercolors by Tony Foster. His beautiful journey series is on display, visit to see the paintings and learn about the way he creates his paintings. Some were done underwater. The paintings seem simple, but the detail he creates, and the texture that you see in his trees, leaves and rocks are amazing. His paintings are about his journeys and focus on the landscape. Watch the introduction video and be amazed with the size of his watercolor tin. We took a tour and were there for just under 2 hours. There are audio tours available, or you can arrange a tour for a group. There's some parking in back and street parking in front. If you have a large group, carpool because there isn't an abundance of parking.

Watercourse Way

Reviewed By L0ve2travle

During global coronavirus outbreak and people hoarding toilet paper, Watercourse Way is just what one needs to escape from reality. My BFF and I spent 2 blissful hours in a dry sauna followed up by relaxing massages. It's not cheap but worth of splurge. One should definitely visit this unique and incredibly beautiful spa.
