“no ice...for real”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed December 30, 2012

No ice in soda, so I went back thinking it was forgotten. I was told they don't have an ice machine.

“Great old theatre but a bit paranoid.”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed December 27, 2012

I LOVE this theatre and the family that owns it is very, very nice. Between shows though they do not let you in until the entire place clears. It is annoying at best. People have to wait a long time and if they are lucky that would be in the lobby. Frequently you have to wait out in the snow! We waited at the window for 20 minutes last week with the ticket seller inside and no sign or notice or any indication as to why they were not letting us in. Someone more disgruntled than I had to go ask them what was up. I think this is a bit paranoid. If someone can really watch more than one movie in an afternoon I say let them! They would gain more by being more inviting than any ticket sales saved by the one or two people who would sneak into another film.
This place could use some competition since they are the only mainstream theatre in the area (they own the one in Barre as well).

“Old fashioned theatre experience”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 28, 2012

Very nice, beautiful theatre. Popcorn excellent. Nice friendly service. It reminded me of how the movie theaters were back when I was younger. Small theatre with hometown feel.

“Small Multiplex”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed September 8, 2012

Your basic first run movie theater. Small screens, average sound and poor seats. Not your stadium seating type theater.

“Very well located friendly staff”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 20, 2012

We spent 2 nights in Montpelier / Barre and enjoyed, after a nice day strolling downtown Montpelier, and evening at the movies. The staff was helpful and the theater offered 3 different movies.
