Great small theater

Small, quaint wonderful theater. Great place to go if you don't care to go to a mainstream busy theater. This place is wonderful.

The first thing you will notice when you walk in the door at the Visulite is the wonderful aroma of FRESH popped popcorn! Yummy! Wonderful snack bar with condiments, too. They offer such a wide variety of entertainment. You can go to the Opera on Saturday afternoon-See the Avengers,Imitation Game or American Sniper-see many of the top names in Today's... More

Went to see the new Avengers movie and even though they had 3D availability they did not show it in 3D. Why not? We had a good time – but it would have been much better in the 3D format.

Hi Judy, thanks for visiting the Visulite! Although we *do* have 3D capabilities, we normally only show our films in 3D during the first week of their respective runs. Avengers ran in 3D at the 4:00 set for the first week, but we dropped those 3D showings after the 1st week since they just aren't as popular as the 2D... More

New to the area, we were looking for the Imitation Game, and this was where we found it. They also show mainstream. Very small theatre in the middle of town. Comfy seats, but what sold me was that they offer hot tea at the concession, and a very nice young man who was happy to chat about the theatre. We... More

Very nice theatre right in town and walking distance from Stonewall Jackson hotel. The seats were very comfortable and the prices were great. The size of the screen and sound were really good. Would go back again.

Smaller theater, quirky offerings, and a hot tea beverage option! This is easily the best movie theater experience I have had in years. On a Saturday night visit, it was crowded but not crazy...perfect! Comfortable seats and a courteous crowd make this my new favorite movie spot.

We enjoyed a Friday afternoon film in great seats and a crowd of some four (yeah, 4) adults. The bottomless popcorn kept us alive through the ads (many) and previews (quite a few). The theater has great seats and decent films, and public parking is easy.

Looking for something to do on a rainy day, I went to the Visulite Cinema. Saw a first run movie, fresh popped pop corn and comfortable seating. Would definitely go again and recommend.

If you're tired of paying $40 to see a movie, come to the Visulite in downtown Staunton! Between the two tiny theaters on the main street, you can usually see any of the current box office hits for a tiny fraction of the usual price. Bring a receipt from Food Lion to get a free soda! Also, some theaters have... More
