“Dirty Grampa Movie”
Review of Star Theater

Star Theater

Attraction details
Owner description: 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!
Reviewed 18 March 2016

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 kid and the ticket price is great!

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.

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!

Glad you enjoyed your visit. Of course, now you've given away our secret -- showing movies is just a front for the REAL adventure...the incredible popcorn. We owe it all to the fabulous 1949 Manley popcorn maker.
