“Great Art-house Fare”
Reviewed July 1, 2014 credit card Amex Card Member Review

Best place in Bucks County to see art-house movies, indies and old classics on the big screen. Reasonably priced, worth being a member for the extras you get. Popcorn is pricy.

“A bit of nostalgia”
Reviewed May 29, 2014

It is an old type movie theater from days ago that you would see in small towns growing up.
It is small with two distinct areas for showing movies. Has a small refreshment stand.
It definitely brings back memories which makes it so unique. A definite throwback which I hope never goes away.

“Iconic entertainer”
Reviewed May 28, 2014

We can walk to this great theater that offers a wide variety of art films, main stream releases of a more artsy nature, classics, and family fun cinema. It's convenient, clean, and comfortable. The people are friendly and the popcorn fresh. It is so accessible we've come to regard going to a big cinema complex as "too overwhelming". So glad to have the County Theater in our town. It is also the subject of many great paintings of the local scene.

“Back in Time”
Reviewed May 28, 2014

Great vintage theater with an old-fashioned atmosphere that brings me back to my days as a youth in the 50's. Very relaxing and intimate. Love the place.

“Enjoy The Movies”
Reviewed May 10, 2014

It is a real pleasure to sit in a movie theater where the clientele is quiet and respectful. I found this at the County Theater on several visits. Furthermore, you can buy popcorn, Coke, and candy at very reasonable prices compared to the major theater chains. The retro movies are a real treat, seeing them on the big screen rather than TV or computer. The staff is friendly, another plus. Sit back and enjoy.
