Best Movie Theater

When it comes down to offering a powerful cinematic experience in the Chippewa Valley, Micon Cinemas sweeps the voting. With two locations in Eau Claire (the first-place winner at 3109 Mall Drive and the second-place Downtown Budget at 315 S. Barstow St.) and one in Chippewa Falls (475 Chippewa Mall Drive, which lands at No. 3 in the poll), owners Mike and Connie Olson, along with their son Dan, have fought to keep movie-watching culture alive in the area despite the pandemic. The popcorn is buttery, the drinks are cold, and all three Micon Cinemas locations are ready to give you a night at the movies you won’t soon forget. –Parker Reed
