This a beautiful single screen theater from the 1920's with a genuine pipe organ! It is played before the show on weekends by volunteer organists/ Otherwise it's a very large theater with big screen by modern theaters. This is our first choice of all local theaters, they have the best in first run movies and also do revival festivals several... More

I go every year for their Christmas Show. Beautiful old fashion theater. They run Its a Wonderful Life on a Saturday in December.

Gorgeous - be sure to look at the ceiling, with its decorative painting and Tiffany light fixture. The seats are not "stadium seating" comfort, but they are fine. Movie screen is huge - great for action flicks. Check out their vintage film days, complete with organ player.

A true motion picture palace. From the marque on the street, the ticket window in the vestibule to the chandelier, a real landmark. A large single screen theater with wonderful character. Very few of these left. The Lafayette has state of the art sound and projection equipment so the films are well presented. All that and a live Wulwitzer organ... More

This is the first time I have felt inspired to write a review for a location other than hotel. Awesome experience that hardens back to the old days. Went last night. No annoying mall rat crowd talking, texting or being generally rude. Theater was about 75 percent full and audience applauded after the show. The man that takes your tickets... More

What an old world theater should feel like. The details of the refurbishment are well done. The organ player prior to the movie provides a unique "feel good" experience. The only compliant is that the screen is smaller than modern theaters relative to the seats in back.

The Lafayette Theater is a landmark in Suffern. It's golden age decor and organ player create an atmosphere that has disappeared from todays theaters. It brings you back to a time when movies were a revered form of community entertainment. However in this world of today, where we are offered so many choices and chaos abounds, the Lafauette is a...

http://cinematreasures.org/theaters/2897 This is a large, and "grand" old style theater with balconies and beautiful decorated ceilings. It's sadly not full very often these days.... I remember seeing The Towering Inferno there as a teenager and having to sit up front because it was packed .... and waiting in long lines to see Star Wars and other classics. It's a truly... More

I go here every chance I get. Refurbished. Beautiful details. There are box seats, a balcony, sculpture. Worth it just to look around. Very clean. Not ridiculously priced. Just go there.

The Lafayette Theatre is a precious gem in the town that I have called home for the last 8 years and the town which I hope will be my home for many, if not all my years to come. The theatre is a wonderful venue for both movies and speakers. My first visit was just over a week ago to... More
