This is a must visit theater. Great theater. Super clean. Affordable. Classic charm. This is how movie watching should be done.

The Grand Theater is a beautiful one room theater/cinema. It has kept its vintage charm but with current movies. The seats are comfortable and perfect for children. The refreshments are more than affordable although the popcorn is not very good. I love that I can take a family of four for under $40. They also have a balcony area seating but it is not comfortable. I love this theater and will always return.

As a family of 5, we don't go to the movies often. It's expensive, the kids beg for treats, and the megaplex cinemas often have a not-very-family-friendly atmosphere.

We were thrilled to learn about the Grand Theatre is East Greenville, PA. It's a short (20 minute) drive from the Lehigh Valley area, and on-street parking was plentiful.

The building is beautiful. I loved the antiques featured throughout the building, and it truly felt like an special event rather than just "going to the movies."

We arrived about 35 minutes before showtime, and did end up waiting outdoors for a few minutes before the theatre opened. But it was worth it to be in the front of the line, because the theatre was nearly full by showtime.

Admission for matinees is $3. Yes. $3. Which means my whole family bought tickets with a $20 bill - and I got change. Unheard of at any other movie theatre!

Concessions were affordable and tasty. We decided to splurge and let the kids each pick a candy and a drink, as well as buying a large popcorn for the family to share. Again, less than $20! And the kids were thrilled with the selection. Candy was about $2.50, drinks were $2, and a large popcorn (made in their antique popcorn popper) was only $3.

It was a thrill to watch the curtains open as the movie started. I loved our little step into the past! Next time, we really hope to be able to try sitting in the balcony area; however, it was booked for a private party during this visit.

I also picked up a flyer about renting the theatre for private parties. For $75/hour you can rent the theatre and play XBOX games on the giant screen! What a cool idea!

Ed Buchinski and his partner have completely renovated this old theater in the Upper Perkiomen area and have state-of-the-art sound! New hits are there early in their run but admission is just $5 in the evening and even less for matinees! Even their concession stand is easy on the budget!

Thiis is our first choice in movie theaters - and there are a number of theaters closer to us. While it is a beautifully restored old theater, there is nothing old about the modern digital projector and sound system. It is kept superbly clean, the staff is incredibly friendly and the prices are incredibly low. If you want to be really picky and look for cons: generally the movies they show have been out for a little while and the bathrooms are small. If there are any other cons, then I'm not aware of them.
