March 2008 Update.

Eric Faden sold the Campus Theatre and it is now being run as a non profit institution with a community-based board of directors.

The Campus was selected as one of 52 movie houses in the nation to host an official “Oscar Night America” party sanctioned by the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences. The party was a fund raising event for continued preservation of the theatre. The party feature a live “red-carpet” video feed into the theatre and limo service to the front of the theatre.

Lost Momory…that is the new marquee you linked on the 28th Dec. 2007. Looks great in person. I have tried to find a picture of the Hill, but no luck. I thought if anyone could find one it would be you.

Lost Memory….The picture you provided is one before the marquee was renovated. It has been updated with energy efficent lighting. If you want to see an even more beautiful marquee, go to the Campus website and check out the pictures. An outstanding job was done. Thanks for that picture..Now if you can come across a picture of the HILL theater in Camp Hill Pa. That is one I would love to see.

Here is an interesting article about the Campus:

I have been to the Campus several times. I liked it better when Mrs. Steifel owned it.

I used to live a few blocks from the Campus, and miss it a lot! It’s a beautiful theater and everyone in the area had to be pleased when it was renovated. Many times the Campus is the only place you can go see independent and limited release films in Central PA (not exactly the cultural hub of the universe), which is much appreciated.

Although I first discovered the Campus theatre about eight years ago, I just saw the inside of the Campus theatre on April 10, 2004. The marquee has recently been refurbished and to quote the projectionist, “It shines so bright now that you can see the cracks in the mortar of the building across the street.” A lovely theatre with mostly art deco fixtures and a beautiful stainless steel ticket booth. The two staircases which lead up to the two washrooms (one on each side of the projection booth) have beautiful curved walnut wainscotting. The warmth of the rich walnut offsets the sometime cold appearance that art deco motifs can exhibit.
The Steifel family (the previous owners) also owned the Roxy Theatre in Lock Haven until it was sold to the current owners about ten years ago. I also believe they owned other theatres.
The last 200 or so seats have been removed and an elevated platform installed with table and chair seating and the rear portion and sofa seating at the front portion.
Most of the films shown are I.F.C. or as menioned above vintage Hollywood classics. Dr. Faden, a Bucknell University film professor, is the executive director of the non-profit group which now ownes and operates the Campus Theatre.

I was visiting in-laws and had a chance to see a movie at this magnificent theatre. I liked the lobby display with the various bits and pieces of memorobilia of the theatre’s history and the interior murals and paintings were breathtaking. I’m glad a place like this has survived.

I’ve lived in Lewisburg my whole life and the renovation of The Campus Theater is the best thing that has ever happened here. The theater looks great and the movies they show are always really cool and unique. I love the film festivals to—at last, some real culture in central PA!

I stopped in to introduce myself as a PA theater owner while you were still renovating one day. I was very impressed, the theater was beautiful and I wanted to congratulate the owner. You can imagine my surprise when I was told to “get out” before I could say anything. I have tried to contact the owner by phone to tell him about this, because I am sure he would not have acted that way, and would like to know who did. At any rate, I think you did a grate job.
