News About This Theater
- Jan 16, 2013 — Vintage movie house goes digital
Originally built in 1916 as a car storage garage. The Berkeley Theatre opened in 1928. Known as the Alpine Theatre from 1948 and following a renovation in 1964 when the theatre was gutted, it reopened as the Lynn Theatre on December 23, 1964. This depression-era, mom and pop neighborhood movie house is owned and operated by a husband and wife team. Movies are shown once a night on Friday, Saturday and Sunday all year. The feature changes every week. Prices are $3.50 for adults; $3 for children.
The Star Theatre is the center of nightlife in the historic spa town of Berkeley Springs, WV and led the revitalization of downtown when it passed into the current owners' hands in 1977.
The main attractions besides the vivid marquee that lights up the night sky are: 1949 Manley popcorn machine that produces great popcorn served with real butter; 3 overstuffed couches available by reservation; etiquette speeches before the movie; a friendly, down-home crowd that make visitors feel like part of the family.
