Great Experience

Like stepping back in time - a charming theater with great prices and old-time charm. A plus is a great street of shops and restaurants to peruse before/after a movie.

This old theatre has been restored and preserved through local and Bucknell efforts and must be seen. They show a wide variety of films including screenings for theater classes at Bucknell that are open to the public for free and often have commentary before the showings.

Special place to watch a movie while in a 1940's art deco movie theater. You can call ahead and reserve a couch! Can't beat a place with fresh popped popcorn with butter.

If you want an amazing Art Deco treat go to the Campus Theatre and you will be treated to an amazing experience. The murals are all re-done and the colors are vibrant. I had no problem imagining myself in the roaring 20's and being all dressed to the nines attending a movie here. The place has a feel to it... More

A beautifully restored old-fashioned theatre. They charge a bit less than the traditional movie theatres, pour real melted butter on your popcorn, and offer free refills of soda, and I believe popcorn too! Extremely comfortable and if you get there early enough you can snag one of the couches in the back so you can really watch the show in... More

I was there for an event with Rick Guidotti of Positive Exposure. The theatre staff, the setting, and the environment could not be nicer!

If you have the opportunity, stop by the campus theater and take in a movie. The place has been remodeled, restored and redecorated. It is a lovely and unique experience. We even got free admission as the movie had already started.

Restored older theatre with area in back that has couches, tall stools and tables so you can easily snack while watching. Occasional BYOB nights!
