An experience to seek out
Dec 2019 • Couples
This is a great local theater with a lot of character. The interior is art deco, so very there early to look at it all. Certain nights they have BYOB, look at the calendar for that. You have to check in the beer or wine, pay a few bucks for unbottling. The movies start promptly at the listed time with no previews, so don't be late! It's surround sound, the chairs are comfy and honestly the temperature on a winter night was perfect. Movies here are second run, but it's worth it to wait a few weeks to see them in this atmosphere.

A grand dame of the theater
Nov 2019
This art deco theater is a throwback to another era. It is quite the experience to see a movie (typically an older movie) in the grand surroundings. Our movie, a 50 year old Alice's Restaurant campy movie actually broke down around the mid way point. Somehow, rather than ruin our evening, it actually enhanced the experience, especially for those of us old enough to remember theaters with multiple projectors and noticeable transitions between reels of film.

Classic architecture

A beautiful, well-restored movie theater, and a great place to enjoy a flick. Much classier than the standard mall theaters.

Community nugget with charm
Oct 2019
The Campus Theatre does not boast itself on being one of the mega theatres as you find in malls. Instead, it is an iconic ode to the past when theatres were dressed in all the finery of ones in the past. Lavish decor and comfy seating abide here along with a a little nostalgia felt the moment you step inside. It is a charming little theatre that fits right in with the community that surrounds and supports it. Here you'll find modern day films and films that pay homage to the past. They also play host to a number of local and community events.

Unique Place
Aug 2019
For a baby boomer like myself, this theater is a trip down memory lane. The "mall theaters" have their place, but it is wonderful to be able to watch a movie like we did in our younger years. If you haven't been here, you should check it out. Kudos to Bucknell University for keeping this historic place alive.

The campus is an area gem. The regular showings of recent films, old classics, and the regular artsy offerings - mean there’s always something worth watching. The ambiance and decor of a restored Art Deco theatre make you feel transported to a magical place and time. Also- the acoustics are excellent and I’ve see several music shows that have been high quality. If you’re in town or live nearby - it’s worth catching a show here.

Art Deco with 21st century tech
Dec 2018 • Couples
My wife and I caught a 5 o'clock showing of Bohemian Rhapsody. Thoroughly good experience.

The theater itself is a masterpiece of restoration. I've been in fancier art deco buildings but the decor, while perhaps tamer than some, enhanced the atmosphere.

The non-profit that restored and that manages the theater has had the good taste to invest in fine projecrion and sound technology, so even a show that's as depended on audio as this Queen biopic was presented to the highest standards.

Their staff is first-rate friendly and professional, and the ticket prices are low!

A great place to visit/

A true gem of a theatre!
Dec 2018 • Couples
This is one beautiful movie theater in the heart of a charming town. The ambience is incredible. We have seen everything from new blockbusters to old classical films. It's perfectly placed in the center of town to shop before the movies or have dinner at Elizabeth's.
