Located near the square at 29 W. Main Street in Hummelstown PA, the Standard Theatre was your typical small town neighborhood theatre with about 300 seats all on one floor. It was affectionately dubbed "The Rat House" because of rumors that you could supposedly feel creatures crawling over your feet during the show. The Standard Theatre lasted until the mid-1970’s.

The building is now the home of Kirman Eye.
