Overview

Travel back in time to when a night at the movies was still affordable and fun: this 300 seat Depression-era movie house features sofa seating (only 3) and a super tub of popcorn with real butter for $4. A real mom and pop theater. On the West Virginia Historic Theater Trail. In 2013, the Star went digital!

Your toxic attitude toward everything is legendary in Berkeley Springs. Thanks for staying away from the Star.

I have attended movies and lectures at this Theater in Berkeley Springs, WV. They have been showing movies for 88 years. They just replaced their 1949 seats! These are not the new plush reclining seats you find in some theaters but they are comfortable. I...More

Reminds me of the Vilma theater in Baltimore, only ours had a balcony. First run films at cheap prices. Theater is clean. No running up and down the aisles. I do wish they had lids on the soda. Other than that, I have always had...More

Thousands of people buy popcorn at the Star before, after and during the movie. For 39 years the Star has received high marks from Health Dept. inspections. There are no holes in the seats and, in fact, the 67 year old vintage seats were just...More

Classic old theater with new movies and digital projection. Very reasonable price for admission. Only open on weekends with one film. Soon to replace seating!

Thanks for visiting the Star. By next weekend, our 67-year-old seats will be replaced by newer, wider ones. Come see us again and try them out.

Whenever we are in Berkeley Springs for the weekend, we go to the movies. They were playing Dirty Grampa and it was a racy hoot. The theater is a blast from the past - the way I went to the movies when I was a...More

Thanks. Bringing back memories for folks is one of our favorite tasks.

With what seems like original leather seats (that are quite narrow these days!), this theater is a taste of theaters from previous generations. Also a few couches! Can't beat the price ($4.50 for adults) and the popcorn is delicious. Owners are friendly. Great small-town feel.

Thanks for your kind words. Glad you enjoyed our treasure. You'll be happy to know that we're hoping to replace the seats early next year with some a little wider.

What a movie going experience! This takes you back. Small local friendly place. Saw the movie Transylvania II. Nice change from the big theaters. And of course the fresh Hot popcorn!! What a great. Make it a stop on your trip to Berekley Springs. Enjoy!!

We're always delighted when people enjoy the Star. You got a real dose of what a small town community theater is by attending when Hotel Transylvania was showing. Come back again. Thanks.

An old style movie theater with the best popcorn. You can even rent a couch. Large screen, no noise. Owners are great folks. If you are in the area for the weekend, definitely try to take in a movie!
