One more comment — the Buchanan Theatre is not closed! It has been reopened and showing movies on weekends for over a year now!

My father owned this theatre for thirty years (ca. 1945-75). Holding concerts and stage shows there in addition to movie showings is in keeping with his original intent. Hats off to the Carters and SRO for a wonderful restoration!

My wife and I looked at this theater to purchase in 1996. We decided it was more than we wanted to take on at the time. In 1999 we bought an old church building and coverted it into a single screen. We opened May 26th 2000 and still operating today as Lakeview Cinema, Galeton Pa. Plans are in the near future to twin. Good luck to you. Small towns are tough but not impossible.

There are 202 seats downstairs and 20 seats upstairs in a small balcony, not open to the general public, as an FYI.

A friend told me about your website; I am the new/current owner of The Buchanan Theatre; my husband and I are remodeling and the work is almost completed. We plan to have a mix of live music concerts, movies, and small cast plays,etc. that are consistent with family values. This has been a labor of love for my husband and many friends, who have volunteered hours of labor.

We are excited that we can contribute to the community in this way – going to “the movies” was a big factor in my life, growng up in a small town in Tennessee, and for my husband going to this very theatre. More generations of young folks should know that kind of entertainment; we are almost ready to open the doors once again…June 16, 2002

I worked as a teenager in the Buchanan Theater. My father was the owner (ca. 1946-1975) and my mother often worked the concession stand. It is gratifying beyond words to know that the theater will reopen, even if in a limited manner. Looking forward to attending the reopening!
