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

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

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
