Mickey's Diner is an old school Art-Deco diner car, made and installed before World War II. Apparently, it has been operating non-stop since then. Featured in a number of movies, it also has good comfort food and delicious shakes.

There is a second location down W. 7th st, but this is the location featured in several films.

The theater is named for F. Scott Fitzgerald, who wrote books.
