My husband calls it the "Urine-Eight", but we still go there cuz its convenient and the prices cant be beat ($1 off for student IDs, even if they are 10 years old). I have been super annoyed at the one theater having a poor sound system (for years) and I have seen the roof leaking during a film and the worst part is the place is filthy including the womans room, but I have to say it is still fun to go to an old school theater and see new films. I dont care about the seats, they are good enough. I think I would like it better if they opened up the second concessions side (faster to get popcorn), took plastic and offered a wider variety of healthier snacks; however, I imagine this would raise the price. We all know that theaters make money on the snacks, not the movies. Anyway, dont have high expectations and go to the bathroom before you leave home and youll be OK.
Im disappointed that when new owners took over they didnt take the time to redo the theater. Its a prime location, but people are making the drive to Ithaca or Syracuse because they want to be comfortable while watching a movie. I came out during the movie and no one was around. I guess the people making the popcorn also have to run the movies? Even when the movie was over, no one was around. I waited and waited and was going to buy more food, but they lost money that day. If you are willing to look past sitting in a broken seat and having your feet stick to the ground, go here. This theater is fine for the times sitting in a movie theater to watch a certain movie rather than your home is ideal. Just remember to dress warm and understand you wont have the most comfortable experience.
Went to the movies to see a horror flick Meanwhile the inside of this place was more horrifying than the movie. The seats are disgusting smelly falling part one of the rules are no feet on the seats how can you when the seats are so close together My family and I were itching the entire time, seats were very uncomfortable. Wait let me not forget they charge for the ice WATER.
This place needs an overhaul before asking people to pay regular theater prices to go here. Seating is all torn and filthy (I mean nearly every seat, not just a few), bathrooms are horrid, I almost always go to Ithaca or Syracuse to see movies. This theater reminds me of $1 or $2 theater, but Ive been to some of them that were in better condition.

I know what I am getting when I come here. The lower star rating is because of lack of credit card processing which is always a huge inconvenience since I can never remember and in this age it is such an easy concern to fix. Theater is a little older and the areas are a little smaller, but its clean and I always have a good experience.
Sometimes the sound is choppy. The theater is very old, and the prices are very high considering the quality of the theater. The chairs arent very comfortable, and sometimes you can hear other movies playing because the place is so old and the insulation is bad.
The place it self is great for a cheap movie but do not go when collage kids are there Girls was hoping seat from seat blocking the View flashing light And being very loud Other than them there not to bad
5 stars not because it is a good or comfortable movie theater, but more so that someone thinks it worthy to preserve this place as an homage to the way movie theaters were 80s and 90s.
Last week, there were a whole row of seats not attached to the floor. Needs renovation. Wish I owned it. So much potential, but not maintained or updated.
Old run down building, seats are thread bare and ripped and sit very uncomfortable. Its worth the drive to Syracuse or Ithaca for a better theater
They need to replace and update their seats. It makes it hard to enjoy a movie. I gave it 2 stars because the staff is friendly and inviting.

My favorite theater because it costs at least $2.00 less than its best competitor and it has the best 3D theater that Ive ever seen.
Nice and clean first-run theater, with the caviat that they only take cash (there is an ATM in the lobby, but itll charge a fee).
Cash-only, but they have an ATM. Their website looks like it hasnt been updated since 1996 (the design, not the content).
The theater is out of date with its seating and screens. Two of the theaters have better sound quality than the other 3.
Fine theater for our small city with good prices. Rather be local then have to go 25 miles to see a movie.
A great small theater for our town of Cortland, great environment, prices, not too far from home!
Always have the best movies, an its never crowded. For a bargain night for our whole family.
There hasnt been any refurbishing done in years. Seats were ripped and floors were sticky.
Great price, and local. However the theater needs a huge redo. New seats is a MUST
Lets face it, the place needs some work, but its cheap compared to other theaters.
The price is right for first run movies but the seats leave much to be desired.
Great service and my girls absolutly love It.. we go atleast once a month. ..
Great prices but the place is a dump! The owner needs to remodel the place.
Old theater, cash only. Good for thos in a budget. Staff is friendly.
Food is great. Movies are good. Seats need work but there not tht bad
