The Nugget Theater is a local theater. Originally a single screen theater now divided into four screening rooms. Projection and sound equipment is good, but not exceptional. Seating never seems just right, ~ the angle of the seat backs is wrong. Theaters are clean and...More

It is a nice theater in that it has a wide variety of movies. The showing rooms are a bit small, but we go to the early shows and manage to get seats.

The Nugget is by far the best place to see a movie in the Hanover area. Always clean and comfortable, with Morano Gelato right next door. Bring a sweater!

I love the seats, the small theatre size, how clean it is. I adore the freshly made popcorn with butter. and the fact that is a non-profit only adds to my strong recommendation.

This a very small theater with very few selections of movies. The seats are comfortable enough and it’s the only theater in Hanover so it’s convenient for those in town but definitely is not the best theater in the area.

Nugget Theater is a non-profit operated and staffed by genuinely dedicated people. They consistently select the most compelling, must-see, quality films. The theater is always meticulously cleaned and well-staffed. Ticket sales benefit the region's community, including Storrs Pond Recreation Area (another gem), the Campion Ice...More

The Nugget is small but continues to provide Hanover with first-rate movies. Seats / sightlines are good and the popcorn, with real butter, adds a welcome crunch to the experience.
