"Favorite theater.... it just is the perfect place to see a movie. The theatres are big enough for blockbusters but cozy enough to feel warm and comfortable. The Moviehouse offers so much for so many tastes. Feel blessed to have it a walking distance away on a nice day"
In an era of streaming, “going to the movies” may seem like a date night straight out of the 90s. After all, why would we leave our cozy homes to brave a night out on a cold winter evening?
But in Millerton, “going to the movies” remains a perfect Friday night adventure–or any night, depending on your schedule. The Millerton MovieHouse is an iconic testament to what the lost experience of a night at the theaters used to signify. Set in a historic Grange Hall and has been showing movies in an upstairs room since approximately 1915. The Millerton MovieHouse provides viewers with the experience of the big screen with the same cozy atmosphere of their living room. Under new ownership since 2021, the MovieHouse has had a rejuvenation and is ready to welcome visitors, both local and new, into its historic halls.
Rated best “Hipster Hangout in the Hudson Valley” in 2018, the MovieHouse continues to live up to its reputation with three screens, the MovieHouse hosts everything from flashy blockbuster movies to first viewings of independent films and live streams of Met performances. A classic concession stand provides viewers with tasty snacks, complete with an old-fashion popcorn machine. A new bar is currently in the works on the second level, completing the full “date night” experience.
This weekend, opt to set the Netflix aside and head out to Millerton for a night at the movies!
