Overview

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!

Glad you found us and had a good time. We are very selective on who is allowed on couches so can verify no shenanigans. Try them next time.

Yep. The Star does it the old fashioned way. One movie, one time on weekends. But we do change movies every week. Glad you had fun -- we do.

This theater has been run by HIPPIES for years. I was in it as a kid and once since. Never will I go back.

Your toxic attitude toward everything is legendary in Berkeley Springs. Thanks for staying away from the Star.

Classic old theater with new movies and digital projection. Very reasonable price for admission. Only open on weekends with one film. Soon to replace seating!

Thanks for visiting the Star. By next weekend, our 67-year-old seats will be replaced by newer, wider ones. Come see us again and try them out.
