Montpelier has two theaters for movie lovers. The Capitol shows lots of conventional big screen releases-- action, comedies, romance. The Capitol is generally well run and clean, albeit a bit tired and in need of updating. But good enough. The other theater, the Savoy, is more of an art house and often has films worth watching tha you'd never see... More

This theater is a classic right next to the State Capitol Building. It is like stepping back in time when you enter. They don't make theaters like this anymore and I am glad this one is still around!

The movie theater shows all the first run films one would expect. However, the seats are worn and the overall feel of the theater is dated. If you go to theaters in Williston or better yet, outside VT, you cannot help but see that this theater is in need of a makeover. We still go here but would really enjoy... More

The theater is old but charming. We were glad they had a theatre and was surprised to see they had 4 or 5 movies showing as the theater doesn't look that large. It's not new so no fancy seats. We were charged $8 for a senior and $11.50 for a regular ticket. It was suppose to be 3-D but the... More

No ice in soda, so I went back thinking it was forgotten. I was told they don't have an ice machine.

I LOVE this theatre and the family that owns it is very, very nice. Between shows though they do not let you in until the entire place clears. It is annoying at best. People have to wait a long time and if they are lucky that would be in the lobby. Frequently you have to wait out in the snow!... More
