This locally owned retro-style movie theatre is a total "must experience" when near the New Cumberland, PA area! For a little theatre it sure has good sound and a huge screen for an awesome movie experience! You'll just love it! Yes, the movies are not the latest, but it's so inexpensive and such a safe family oriented theatre where one... More

If you've never been to an old movie house, you'll be thrilled if you visit the West Shore Theatre. As soon as you walk in, you're taken way back a couple decades. The theatre offers up-to-date sound & movie technology, and you'll be so comfortable in lush seating. Prices are very low; a quarter of the price of what you'd... More

They don't have first run movies, but this is a great night out on a budget! Tickets and snacks for less than $20. They are particular about you bringing in outside food - they'll confiscate it until after the movie, but that's just a respect thing. They have to make a living, and the snacks are cheap anyway.

Wow! Thank you for saving our night. We had just left a filthy hotel in the area and it was about 11:15PM. We showed up at this hotel and the young lady was so sweet and courteous. They were booked solid so we ended up in the handicap accessible room (but I have a lot of physical issues anyway). The... More

Good movies with cheap prices. However, you may have to endure a search of your purse to ensure you are not bringing any food into theatre. They claimed all theatres do it, but have never had my wife's purse checked anywhere else. Here's an idea, don't worry about people bringing food in, offer items the customers might want.

watched a matinee during a business trip and was pleased to find the locals kind and curious and very friendly. The movie and popcorn were top notch and at a great price.

The New Cumberland Movie Theater has always been a central point of down town. They have now digitized, due to the efforts of the community to keep them running. They are an essential part of the downtown community. The prices are always fair. (Try going to a digiplex and paying these great prices/ PLUS you have a beautiful; wonderful, open... More

Great theater, a throw back to an older small town establishment. Family owned and operated by locals. As of the past few months this theater has only been showing movies already available on dvd. But some movies are really good on a big screen no matter how old so don't let that deter you. Also there is a little inexpensive... More

This Movie Theater is very Comfortable. It is Like the TIMES OF OLD. If you see a movie there, that is not rated as one of the best : you will still be happy, and proud you went; BECAUSE THIS THEATER is so nice. The employees there, treat you like GOLD.
