“Super Time....back in time...”
Reviewed August 30, 2013

Great small town theatre. Reminds me of the kind I used to frequent as a kid. Nice change from the mega-plexes that are everywhere today.

“Very nice old time movie theater”
Reviewed August 30, 2013

Very clean and charming. Cost only $7.00 to see a current movie. They also have a small museum in the back with lots of old cameras and equipment for you to view. Support this movie theater. From what I understand it needs to go digital very soon in order to keep its doors open.

“Back in time”
Reviewed August 25, 2013

I these days of the multi megaplex theaters that keep popping up, this place shines as a symbol of the old days of cinema. Old timey theater with awesome folks who own/work there. Hopefully they'll make their cash goal to transition to digital (forced by the movie industry who won't release things on film anymore) and will still be there for years to come!

“A Must See and Visit”
Reviewed August 16, 2013

This is certainly a place to visit if you are ever in the Old Forge area. From the moment you see the outside of the building to stepping into this wonderful blast from the past you are hit with memorabilia from all era's of moving making. They always have the best movies and the just the experience of watching movies in this theatre is memorable. The owners are the nicest people you ever want to meet and don't forget to get Popcorn....Yummmm! We have have been to this theatre numerous times and it never ceases to amaze us. If you are looking for something that is worthwhile to invest in, do it here. They need to switch over to digital and need all of our help. It would be a shame to lose such a magnificant historical theatre. I can't say enough about this place. Just go and experience it for yourself, you won't be disappointed.
