The movies aren't the most recent ones out there, but the low price of the tickets make it worth. The seats and the screen are both excellent.

Old time theatre with modern projection, sound, and amazing popcorn with *real* butter. If you don't have time to see a movie, ask if you can see the interior, it's beautiful and worth it. BYOB nights are a fun plus. Highly recommended.

Saw a screening of Danny Collins at the Campus Theatre. You definitely get the old time theatre feel here. Staff was wonderful, seating is great and my wife and I enjoyed that the movie started on time - not after 20-30 minutes of previews! They have BYOB nights, free viewings in conjunction with some of Bucknell U's film classes, and... More

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.
