Adirondack Family Fun: Adirondack Movie Theaters

By Diane Chase

One thing we like to do is to enjoy a small intimate theatre experience.

Not just live theatre, though that plays (no pun intended) a prominent role in our lives. No, it’s escaping for a few hours and going to “The Movies.” At one time many towns in the Adirondacks had their own movie houses. Sadly most have made way for the multiplex.

Some theatres have retained their original architecture so the movie is not always the only thing to observe. Take a moment and enjoy a small slice of history. Each theatre offers a unique experience that a larger cineplex may not.

These theatres are independently owned and operated and can offer a less expensive ticket price.
