This is classic old movie theatre with only one movie showing at a time, huge amount of seating, old organ and balconies and tiers, like a broadway style. Parking limited, but not busy there so it has not been an issue. Love this place.

Fabulous old theater. Pricing is better than the new theaters. Staff is friendly. Seats need a little work.

Whenever we go to the movies, this theater is not one that I'd rush to. The building is a landmark building but in need of a serious updating with the sound system. I do love the architecture of the inside. It transports you to a time gone by with the balcony that holds an actual organ that gets played occasionally... More

I remember my Saturdays at the movies-Loews, Proctors and some of the other movie palaces. Also Friday ad Saturday family ritual of a trip to the movies. Women dressed up. Men wearing ties. Lots of seats. Big screen, penny dispensers for drinking water and five-cent candy. The matron in white stockings and a big flashlight prowling during matinees to be... More

It's like stepping back in time - they have one screen, a beautiful auditorium, and even a live organ player before the show! Tickets and concessions are cheap, and popcorn is delicious - popped with coconut oil! Cannot recommend this place enough, it's totally charming.

Great to see a movie where they still play a organ before the show it's great for the kids to see and hear. It's beautiful inside nice and clean. It's a nice experience to show the kids what it was like in the old days to see a movie.

Just a wonderful step back to bygone eras of what movie theatres were before they became multi-plex establishments. Great movies in a great setting.

This movie theater is an amazing old time fashioned designed by n the Olden days. It's located right in the town of suffern. It is only opened in Tuesdays. Great for a rainy day out in the town. You will have an amazing time. The inside looks just like a musical theater in NYC. Right across the street is a... More

If you like old style movie theaters from the 1920's this is it. Prices are cheaper then the multiplex, usually have current movies and then they play the real classics for a special.
