“Wilton Theatre: Rustic warmth and homemade lemonade”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 30, 2013

Upon entering the theatre you begin to feel the local history as you are required to climb the massive winding staircase that ascends to the second floor theaters. The slightly bowed center of each stair tread shows the wear and tear of countless moviegoers making their way to the ticket counter at the top. No glass front dividers separate you from the ticket seller immediately giving you a sense of intimacy with the rustic surroundings. Take 1 giant step to your right and you'll be in line for the fresh popcorn and handmade lemonade! Once inside the theatre you'll be please to see that there is huge legroom for even the tallest of patrons and seats that provide comfort and support. Be sure to take in the elevated stage, 20' burgundy velvet curtains and recall the days you spent in your hometown at the recitals and plays of your childhood. The theater is locally owned, reasonable priced and is an anchor to the local community by a generous owner that often offers free classic movies.
For those requiring a more accessible entry, try the upper entrance off of Main St.

“Best place to see a movie”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 20, 2013 via mobile

Ok so the chairs in the one room are not very comfy, but the popcorn and fresh lemonade could have me here every weekend. It is a renovated old town hall and it is delightful. No video games here just piping hot popcorn with real butter if you request. A gem.

“Best Movie viewing place for the art-house lover”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 29, 2013

If you are a movie lover than this is the place for you. The setting and atmosphere is amazing. The prices are cheap. The movie selections are great and always changing. If you want to get away from the big mainstream Cinemagics and Imax theater and still see anything from this years indie - hit or even the occasional big blockbuster then you need to check out the Wilton Town Hall Theater!

Its like a flashback to the vintage past the way movies in a theater were meant to be watched!

“Over The Top, if you love Movies then you need to be here”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 26, 2013

This place is an OMG situation, there is the big room, which is comfortable and a connection to the way back past, but, the technical stuff if current. Also, they have the screening room, and good popcorn, great parking, and friendly service. All that is great, if you then consider and include the silent movies, well you would understand that anyone who celebrates "Movies" either needs to celebrate this operation or ad it that they really do not understand "Movies". So then, look forward to the experience when they bring in a live band to accent a silent movie. Over the top! Unless you hate movies.

“Fun and Funky”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 23, 2013

First of all, it really is in the town hall building over the police station. Lots of leg room, low prices, and real butter on the popcorn. If you're lucky, they will be showing a Three Stooges short before the feature film! This place is not your kids' multi-plex.
