If you’ve been to downtown Lewisburg, it’s hard to miss the Campus Theatre. If you haven’t been to the region, it’s an excellent reason to visit. The Campus Theatre, a historic art deco movie palace, is located in the heart of historic downtown Lewisburg (which is located on the banks of the Susquehanna River in Central PA). It’s definitely hard to miss – with its prominent marquee featuring giant chrome and green neon letters spelling out “CAMPUS” on each side.

The Campus Theatre isn’t just a movie theatre though – its programming is unique, different, and engaging. In addition to newly released movies, they also play classics and artsy films, aimed at engaging the community in a dialogue.  

The Campus Theatre opened its doors in 1941 and little has changed since it’s opening – but in this case, that’s a very good thing! The Theatre was designed by Philadelphia architect David Supowitz, whose characteristic Revival Art Deco architectural style also marked other theatres and building façades in Pennsylvania.

The auditorium is flanked on each side by a twelve-foot high mural filled with vibrant shades of blue, orange, crimson, and silver. The lobby features a mirrored lobby and lounge furnishings, wall and ceiling murals and art deco light fixtures. For more info about its history and architecture, visit their website.

Once you enter the Theatre and are inspired by its architecture, vibrant art, and welcoming ambiance, you’ll be back.
