This is a great little movie theater. They show first run movies for a reasonable price. Being inside took me back to my youth with old fashioned seats (comfortable ones) old retro style decorations and concessions. But a top notch sound system and picture image. It was a great way to spend a rainy night.

This is probably my favoriate movie theater. The prices are low and the concession stand is reasonable. The inside is very attractive with many visual displays. They did a lot of upgrades recently to the theater. Unlike other theaters that charge extra for 3-D films, The Strand does not raise its price.

I have been here twice now, and still yet again was excited to go there. There is a special feeling you get when you are there. Like others comment, the nostalgia, museum pieces, staff, and popcorn are all awesome.

I liked the old time fashion of the building. It is almost like you walk back in time. An old time pop corn machine wonderful ticket prices and even a stage. Great place to see a movie in Old Forge

We always take in a movie if time allows. Just walking through the theater is interesting and fun. The staff is always friendly and the price is right. Who can see a movie for 7 bucks today especially in NY. Try to stop in if possible.

Love this theater. Real price on everything from ticket to food and drink. Every visit to Old Forge should include a movie here. If you're lucky the dog will be sleeping in the middle of the lobby, be sure to stop and pet him.

There aren't many theaters I know of nowadays that offer a $7 matinee - but be forewarned, they take CASH ONLY! The inside is so eclectic and when you step into the theater it's really like taking a trip back in time. My only complaint is that the seats aren't very comfortable. My boyfriend and I left with sore behinds!... More
