The theater is both a movie theater and a performing arts theater. Situated smack dab in the heart of Carlisle, this little gem is as pretty inside as the outside old art deco style marquee is handsome.
The theater hosts not only performers like George Winston at Christmastime and Barleyjuice for St. Pattys', it also plays host to local theater presentations like Chicago and Beauty and the Beast and to the more art-type movies that don't make it into the local Regal movie theater.
They also will rent out to events- can you imagine a themed wedding here?
Truly one of the stand out wonderful things about Carlisle!

love seeing movies in this theatre! it just feels like a special place - comfy seats, great concession stand, lovely decor - it feels like stepping back in time; and the movie offerings are usually artsy, which aren't always offered in the mainstream theatres

Been there while visiting a friend's friend. Had something bite to eat nearby. There are quite number eateries around. The theatre building is also good and renovated nicely. We watched an independent film which we heard is very typical for here. However as many say in here the sound quality was really not good.

We are regular customers to this theater which we love and happens to be three blocks from where we live. We also appreciate and enjoy the selection of movies. But as others have mentioned, the sound is a huge problem. And they know it. But money is an enormous consideration. And now they face the fact that in a short time, films will be available only in digital form - something the theater is not prepared for. If the Carlisle is able to gather enough money to make the transition to digital, the sound problems will also be addressed and we'll finally have the perfect movie venue.

As for the live performances, we went to one country rock concert and the sound, in this case, provided by the band, was so strident and loud, that we have never risked a return.
