They went digital and the picture now is bright and super sharp. The sound went through an upgrade as well. It comes in deep and crystal clear over the radio!

i was in Cornwall Bridge in late July and saw a sign for movies on the gas station for the beginning of August for Wolverine and Turbo. I’m posting the pic now.

Above address does not map properly. Use River Rd & Morgan Brook Rd.

This place is great the McGrane family is friendly and make you feel at home its awesome getting a burger or fries at the concession stand the kids play ball or frisbee before the show reminds me of old simpler times they even play the old intermission snack ads between shows if your in the area support it its a piece of americana that needs to be treasured.

Stopped by two days ago on a bike trip. Smart location, really nothing around but woods and watershed land.

Excellent article on this theatre in the NYTimes CT Section.

I just took a ride by the area. The good news is: This theater WILL be re-opening for another season, beginning on April 28 and 29.

What a wonderful place to spend a summer night. There are only two things that disturb its old-fashoned atmsphere: (1) I wish they could have retained the speaker system rather than convert to radio frequency and (2) The movies of today seem oddly out-of-place. What we need are more films like “The Brain From Planet Arous”!

The screen is a little dark but the sound was fine & the popcorn was great. A friendly place.
