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

I love the concerts that Marcello's does there. It is nice to sit in an old theater inside of the new metro plexes. I like the special events.

I usually don't go to the movies, but I'd come here again. Nice big screen, old fashioned theatre was quite charming. Seats a tad uncomfortable. Bathrooms are dated. I didn't feel like a packed in sardine and that's why I'd return.

Love this place but it can sometimes be a little bit cold in the winter so you just have to keep your coat on.

There might olnly be one showing per night - maybe 2 on the weekends but it's a beautiful old theatre with classice organ playing on Saturday nights. Easy to get to, plenty of parking and you can grab a bite to eat in quite a few restaurants within walking distance before the movie.

This is a beautiful classic oldtime movie theater that hasn't been chopped into 3, 4, or 5 theaters. It's got all the trappings of a 1920's movie palace including a pipe organ that they play before the main shows on Fri and Sat I believe. It's been updated to digital and dolby so you can see first run movies in... More

This is one of the more beautiful original movie theaters remaining from the times when kids would spend 5 cents to see movies and spend the day at the theater. The stained glass lighting the beautiful ceilings the organ makes this a theater event and a must see .the older seats aren't like a modern theater but the rows are... More
