Special Announcement – August 23, 2014

On behalf Jim and everyone at the Star Theatre we’d like to sincerely apologize for last nights projector failure. We share your frustration.

While we can generally resolve technical problems quickly, last night the projector suffered a major breakdown. At this point, its not practical to have the old Simplex 35mm projector repaired.

So, without much fanfare, the film era has ended in Mercersburg.

But, there is good news!

In the past few weeks we have been refining a deal for a new Digital Projector, Server, and Sound System. We’re confident we’ll be showing first-run digital movies by Fall 2014.

We’re looking forward to a better picture, upgraded sound – and more frequent showings.

We appreciate everyone’s support and patience over the years.

Look for a major announcement in the coming weeks!


Enjoy all the latest Hollywood movies on the tri-state’s biggest movie screen, in 7.1 Surround Sound. The Star Theatre has 250 comfortable seats and reasonable prices. Best of all – none of the hustle and bustle of the malls.

We are the most affordable family night out in Franklin County!

We look forward to your visit!
