Great theater

County Theater is a gem. With it's location in the heart of Doylestown, near charming restaurants, and spot on choices of movies it is a winner. It is the soul of the town.

A small art theatre collective. Members help to keep this theatre going, and are given discounts to shows. Art films, classics and special limited theatre engagements are some of the offerings in this historic theatre. . Located in the centre of Doylestown, it is close to restaurants and shops.

This is a great vintage movie theater with excellent sound quality and film. They show lots of indie, foreign and "small" films as well as some blockbusters. Everyone stays to read the credits- audience is filled with true cinema fans.

Best place to see a movie in Doylestown. Art / foreign films galore. Retro decor. All liked minded patrons. Great coffee. Comfortable seats. What else is there? A perfect escape by yourself or with friends.

Highly recommend seeing a film at the County Theater. Seating very comfortable, customer service exceptional and good concession stand. I like that the previews are only 5 minutes long as the new norm is 20 minutes previews at all other movie theaters (Loews, AMC, Regal, UA, etc.) Love that you can see independent films that are not showing anywhere else.

My husband and I love going, and bringing out-of-towners to, this theater. We enjoy the small town feeling of the place, which is enhanced by a fine selection of films. The audience is small and courteous, unlike larger theaters. What a treat!

The County Theater was on the verge of bankruptcy when a non-profit group was formed and took ownership. In many ways the vibrancy of downtown Doylestown is linked to that auspicious moment. An arthouse theater that carries first run films from independents, Europe, and more and hosts numerous special events (like Saturday matinees for children that include old classics like... More

There are so few places like this left anywhere. The movie choice is eclectic and the non-profit vibe is warm.

Have always enjoyed a trek to The County Theatre. Seats are not comfortable, but a near by theatre, in a little town, I adore, where we have an opportunity to view films, not available at the larger theatres. Last time, we were there, my husband sat on the aisle, my brother sat behind him. The seats are small, both guys... More
