Intimate date spot

Projection screen, but good quality. Old style setting, take best partner and sit in the back row. Good sound.

A top notch indie theater. Quirky and with all the latest. Upstairs in an old downtown building, getting there is half the fun.

A great little independent theatre based on the variety of non-mainstream but excellent films, with a wide variety of genre - both domestic and foreign films. We go to the Parkside once or twice a month - and to a syndicate theatre maybe twice a year. A true asset of the community!

This is an eclectic decorated movie venue. The theater is located above a book shop and features several top notch movies in several areas. In the lobby you can purchase refreshments and once seated in ones movie of choice it is quite relaxing and comfortable.

Very quirky theatre that shows some of the best indie films around. Even has a FREE classic movie nite on Tuesday. Bring your own popcorn container - or buy one there - for free refills. You'll love the owner & his excellent employees!

Best movie theater in town. Go for the movies, the inexpensive (and not all that terribly unhealthy) refillable popcorn, the coffee in a REAL mug, the awesome theater setting and fun decor. You don't find many like this any more.

Quirky, always something interesting in the lobby, good movies on screen. Corvallis is so lucky to have Darkside.

Fascinating array of films from independent and even major movie studios. Many get their premier here, including some obscure ones that become blockbusters including "Once"! Tuesday specials with free admission and voluntary contribution. And Paul's "special pricing" gives you a clue about how fun the Darkside is and how much it is appreciated in the Mid-Valley: Special pricing: $41.50 if... More

The Darkside is a Corvallis institution. They pick excellent films, have rather short runs and I enjoy the comfy old seats and their excellent choices. Try the popcorn.

The Darkside specializes in independent or a bit more obscure films. It is a great local theater with a very relaxed atmosphere. Some of the seating is on couches and all of the theaters are smaller than the chain theaters in town. It is definitely our preferred place to see a film and so we see some films that we... More
