Ambler Theater can't be beat for great movies and great ticket-pricing. The management knows its audience, and never fails to run first-rate movies. It's worth the ride if you're not in the neighborhood because there are lots of good eats nearby.

Best theatre and best town to have a night out at the movies. Beautiful restored classic old building. Plenty of after theatre restaurants for a after movie snack or drink. Some with live entertainment on weekends!

I had to go by for old time's sake. Right around the corner from where my grandmother lived. Ambler has changed a lot since my last visit. Becoming more modern but still has that old charm.
