Very unique experience. There is no wall separating the concession area from the theater. You can really smell the popcorn during the movie.

I just noticed, there is no link on this listing.

Here is the theater’s homepage:

My wife and I are around 40 years old and live just outside the Emmaus boro. We enjoy going to the movies 3 to 4 times per month. Certainly we are lured to some of the surrounding “new movie” theaters by brand new movies trailers, but it always ends in dissapointment. Not because of the movies content, but by the experience of paying $7.50 admission each, we drop $12 for sodas and a large popcorn and for what ? To be furious the whole time while rude people(sometimes kids but not always) talk, laugh and check voice mail while we’re paying for a little weekend entertainment? Not anymore, it’s not worth the agrivation. Ok, so we might wait a few weeks to see Million Dollar Baby, which was a fantastic film by the way…but to have the peace and quiet to thoroughly enjoy it is as they say on the commercials for Mastercard…“priceless”. Come, support the people offering you not only the best bang for your buck, but a beautiful slice of “Americana”.

PS. Emmaus is a quaint town and my wife and I just look at each other and smile as the train rolls through during a show. See you there.
