The Crandell Theatre, Columbia County’s oldest and largest theater, is located upstate New York in the village of Chatham. An architectural gem, the Crandell Theatre has remained basically unchanged since it was built as a vaudeville house. It was opened on December 25, 1926 by Walter S. Crandell, a Chatham native and local banker. The opening program was a Jules Verne photoplay, which entertained a packed house.
The Crandell Theatre is designed Spanish Renaissance style, of brick and stucco at the cost of about $100,000 in pre-depression dollars. The theater seats 534 patrons, with 112 of the seats in the balcony. The stage is 26 feet wide and 13 feet deep. The Crandell Theatre is owned by the Chatham Film Club Inc., and it is home to the annual FilmColumbia Film Festival.
