“Looney”
Reviewed 27 January 2014

We enjoyed the Looney Tunes and the narrative beforehand. More of the same please? Tex Avery Next? The theater was comfortable and a true pleasure.

“Great Theater”
Reviewed 9 January 2014

We visited the Dryden on Christmas Eve to see an old Edward G. Robinson film from the 40's. Besides the fun of the film the Eastman House is a tremendous place to visit. The staff is always friendly and helpful. We always visit the George Eastman House for events but this is the first time we had been to the theater. We waited in a quaint snack bar with a very helpful attendant. We purchased coffee and cookies. It was a nice Christmas Eve and we will definitely be back!

“A FILM LOVER'S PALACE”
Reviewed 26 November 2013

The Dryden Theater at The George Eastman House in Rochester, NY is one of the most important motion picture theaters in the nation, if not the world. It is a showplace for some of the great films ever made from one of the largest and most distinctive collections on the planet.

The Dryden was recently refurbished and reconstructed. It is comfortable and prepared to show classic films in whatever format they require.

Any visit to Rochester must include a visit to The George Eastman House and for film lovers, to The Dryden Theater. A true treasure on the cultural scene of our fine city.
