“Brings back memories”
Reviewed July 29, 2013

This small in-town theatre will bring back memories of the past. Although it cannot run 10+ movies at once, the theatre does show new movies, a couple at a time. Their film festivals give a chance to see award-winning movies and documentaries that the larger, multiplex theatres don't offer. The Dietrich theatre also offers lectures and classes when films aren't being shown. Make a day trip to Tunkhannock by taking in a movie, browsing the shops along the main streets, walk the town and admire some impressive Victorian homes, and have lunch or dinner at any one of the fine restaurants in town.

“The Dietrich Theatre is a Gem”
Reviewed November 12, 2012

Small movie theatre that is the only local source of any foreign or arts films. There are usually 4 new releases running daily.

The Dietrich runs film festivals that highlight award winning cinema including documentaries - generally the A list of nominees for the Academy Awards, Sundance, etc. Also, there is a full range of courses and programs for children and adults. Located close to a variety of great little restaurants, shops, etc. Easy parking.On the original Route 6 - and without all the truck traffic that now uses the by-pass leaving this charming village to peace and quiet.

“A cultural treasure”
Reviewed November 12, 2012

Went to the Fall Film Festival... a festival as good or better than those in much larger cities. But the Dietrich offers so much more than great movies... it has classes and theater and exhibits and writing groups. It's a great place...

Excellent theater- small, cozy, comfortable seats, and decent prices! If they are showing something your interested in, you can't go wrong!
