This is the original that has been refurbished into two small viewing rooms! The movies shown are independent and interesting such as Up a hill and down a mountain! Not your mainstream theater!

Great in-town movie theater, a Doylestown treasure! An alternative to the multiplexes. Children's Saturday am offerings. Weekend special offerings from the London stage in real time! Check website for current shows. Also, summer movie nights featuring classics like Orson Wells.

Step back in time where a theater was imbedded into a town. The County Theater is a cherished treasure in Doylestown. Two screens feature a variety of movies. Be sure to shop and eat your way through town after your flick. Parking can be a challenge but is worth the effort.

Great neighborhood theatre venue that plays a central role in what makes Doylestown a great small town. With almost never a hitch, the selection of movies played at the County is reliable of the highest quality.

In this day and age of reclining theatre seats, surround sound and 3-D movies it's a breath of fresh air to encounter a local theatre that shows quality films - new releases and old - in a nice family environment. The refreshments don't require a credit application and while it's not the 'Super Theatre' experience the quality of the films... More

If you are put off by a cineplex with dozens of screens, this is the theater for you. They have two screens. The County also offers films that won't make it to the Cineplex and run some old films from time to time. If you are in the area check out what is playing, you may be pleasantly surprised.

County theater is a comfortable, affordable neighborhood theater. Right now they only have 2 theaters but they are planning on expanding. They show a variety of movies from 1st run to old movies.

Recently viewed a film at The County Theater. Staff were excellent - very friendly and helpful. The prices are reasonable (actually fantastic compared to the big theater companies). The snack bar selection is great - they offer hot tea, multiple varieties. A bottle of water is $1.25, not $5/6 like other theaters. The theaters are really, really, worn out. The... More

If you love the odd, old, independent films, you'll love The County Theater. You are sure to find the unusual selection of films, some never make it to the "big screen"... but they should. Also it is a very intimate place. Comfy seats, small area, so you never feel they have to blast the sound. A great concession stand also!
