“Such a Cute Little Theatre!”
Reviewed 16 June 2014

The building was just as amazing as the movie. Prices were a great deal compared to chain movie theaters. Even though the seats weren't as comfortable, the unique architecture inside substituted. Great family atmosphere. Be back soon to see those summer blockbusters!

“Catching Fire”
Reviewed 4 January 2014

My wife and I went to see the latest Hunger games movie there. We have been going to the Elks since we were kids. I am so glad it is being remodeled back to the original. I would highly recommend going to a nostalgic movie here and save $$ on your film!

“Old Time Cinema”
Reviewed 29 July 2013

One of (if not the) oldest continuously-running movie theaters. Now runs current films with some old favorites thrown in. Now owned by the Middletown borough. Needs an interior re-do (old seats from some other theater, ceiling plaster held in place with netting, heat/AC doesn't seem to work) but they are working on obtaining funds. Balcony is open. Check out schedule at http://elksmovies.wordpress.com/

“Old school movie theater!”
Reviewed 29 July 2013 via mobile

The Elks is great! They are currently doing some fundraising so they can go digital. Great prices and I can't wait until all the renovations are complete! Come down and check out the elks!

“One of the Oldies but goodies”
Reviewed 25 July 2013

Stop in here and see a film. It's one of the oldest theaters around. Prices are good and they always a new film playing. It's a one screen theater with an upstairs balcony. It's been going through some updating and repairs. It still has it's old time charm. Nice place to take your kids for sure.
