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

Would it be wrong to tell you that they have the best popcorn in town, and any size container is refillable for free. Plays many films including foreign language films that don't stay at the chains. They will talk films with you, and hold well thought out critiques. The theaters are small, but that only adds to the intimacy. Once... More

Darkside shows some films that commercial chain theaters usually don't, hence it expands our options. It also shows some my friends and I may have missed during their first run in commercial houses. I value this business enough to have kicked in some funds last year when they needed help purchasing new equipment. Darkside reciprocated with coupons for seeing some... More
