Very cute old theater in the middle of downtown. Prices are great. Theater is older but very cute. We went on a rainy day while visiting Watkins Glen.

The tables in the downstairs theater are great and the people who work there are so friendly! First run movies at a good price, easy to park and no traffic to get there. Wonderful!

If you’re expecting a cineplex experience stick to the mall bub...it’s not IMAX! But, it is a wonder little theatre with original seating and an old school feel. The concession is limited but there is a selection. The entire place smells like freshly popped popcorn.

If you want the quality of a drive in with the price of an IMAX,this is the place for you! The theater was freezing,the subtitles were cut in half,and the concessions suck. I'm willing to pay $3-$5 for these conditions,it even makes it a bit...More

Great theater with two screens. Shoes latest movies at very reasonable prices. Like all theaters, the popcorn is way over priced.

We haven't been to the theater in Watkins for a year, and wow has it changed. We went back the weekend before Christmas. I guess there is a new owner. The price for the four of us to see a movie almost doubled. It used...More
