The Watson Theatre closed in September, 2009.

Ok and thanks for the correction as so many PA towns end in “ville”, but not this one!

It’s about 65 miles SW of Scranton, and about 57 miles N of Harrisburg, off of I-80. (BTW, the place name is Watsontown).

Where is Watsonville located in the State of PA as I might be able to see this theatre if it is within a comfortable driving distance?

Also read that there are only about 300 single screen theatres left in the country. I would like to think there are more than 300 left as so many are listed on CT as either open or closed and not demolished.

Eventually there will be no local theaters left. Certainly a shame.

What a charming little theatre! Is it about to close? Sure hope not though a down economy and the “outside of town” multiplexes do not help matters! Such a shame as the multiplexes have NO CHARM!

Its really a great theatre! Excellent ticket prices, freindly staff, and as mentioned above, one of the finest sound systems in the area. You literally feel the sounds! The theatre also sports an antique ice cream parlor, and frequently hosts special events and costume contests! The Watson Theatre is definatley my favorite video house in the great state of Pennsylvania!!
