An independent, locally owned three-screen theatre next to/above a local bookshop... Keeping it Local to the max! This theatre shows great/weird/smaller-budget independent, foreign and art films in a fun and funky atmosphere. I love the movie poster collages and the snarky pricing list (don't say...More

Darkside Cinema is the best movie theater around Corvallis. When I fist moved into town, I would visit almost every weekend. Great spot!

Small theaters with modest concessions. Very friendly staff. Good selection of independent films and limited number of foreign films.

Terrific independent film house. Offers a wide range of independent and foreign films and documentaries. The Darkside cares about their patrons and the community. A real love of film here, humor abounds in the way it's run. Good popcorn too.

The Darkside is great for seeing independently made films and less-than-mainstream award winners. There are several (5?) films showing in small theatres. Every seat has a good view and the sound is quite good. Even better, I have never frozen or burned up in there!...More

You won't generally find the top 10 current movies here, but I've never been disappointed by a film I've seen. I've loved them all, and I'm a pretty picky movie-watcher.

I love the Darkside! It really feels like you are going to your friend's house to watch a movie. The snacks are reasonably priced - which is very nice! I don't recommend this theater for the big action type films, but in reality they don't...More
