Ephrata Main Theatre is a great spot for movies, live events and more! With a history that stretches back over 80 years, the Theatre is still contemporary, having recently upgraded to digital projectors that show the latest movies in the best way. Plus, the Grand stage doubles as a live performance space. Live concerts, comedy shows and more have graced the stage. Ephrata Main Theatre is also one of the only movie theaters in the area that has the ability to serve beer, wine and mixed drinks in the theaters. So you can grab your favorite libation while watching your favorite show! Add in the award winning food from Lily's on Main (right upstairs from the Theatre) and the ability to do special events - birthday parties, weddings, corporate events - and you have a location that cannot be beat!

Went to see Hair the musical. Brave production but wonderfully executed. Reasonably priced tickets. Comfortable seating. Wish this theatre well with their future productions

We leave in Reamstown - 5 minutes away - and love this movie option for our family. We saw "Jason Bourne" last night - great movie! We love how Steve is able to bring in top-run movies at the same time as the big theaters....More
