GETTYSBURG, PA — The Majestic Theater is showcasing a summer series of classic films, usually not on the big screen in the area.

“Seeing movies in the community is so much more exciting and so much more memorable,” Gabel said. “It can be more emotionally powerful to see a film (when you are) surrounded by others who are experiencing the same emotion.”
