Built in 1905 as a Grange Hall, it has been showing movies in an upstairs room since approximately 1915. The 1914-1915 edition of American Motion Picture Directory shows an Opera House operating in Millerton. By 1927 it was known as the Millerton Theatre which had 360 seats.

In recent years in has been converted into a four screen movie theatre and renamed The Moviehouse. There is an art gallery in the café. The building is listed on the National Directory of Historic Places.
