“A trip back in time!”
Reviewed 8 July 2014

What a wonderful old theater!!! Very comfortable seats, relaxed atmosphere, you can even have a drink while you watch a movie. To top it off they have wonderful popcorn served with Land O Lakes real butter rather than the chemical oil most theaters use. The theater is owned by a wonderful local family...I highly recommend that you check out a movie at the Leavitt Theater when you are in Ogunquit!

It is a family operated little movie theater! Great old-fashioned atmosphere. A perfect place in this lovely little town.

“One of the last great old movie houses!”
Reviewed 26 February 2014

The original wooden seats are intact, they serve real butter on the popcorn and the family that runs this place are a joy. They are planning both digital and climate upgrades that should position this first-run movie house for the next decades to come. A true jewel in Ogunquit.

“What a gem!”
Reviewed 21 February 2014

Love this theater. It was built in 1923, and other than the projection equipment, it hasn't changed an iota since. If you want to experience a movie theater like the ones where your great grandmother saw silent films, this is your opportunity. All original seating including the hat racks under the seats for the gentlemen's hats. Wonderful, historic atmosphere AND they drizzle real butter on the popcorn.

“A (wonderful) trip back in time”
Reviewed 31 October 2013

This is a classic old-time theater, and a great place to see a movie. Family-operated, it's a wonderful atmosphere. They even serve wine. We'd highly recommend catching a movie there when you're in town.
