Hankering to see a movie on a really big screen?
We feel the same and we miss seeing our movie-goers. We want to share the good news. While the Playhouse remains dark, our friends at the Bethel Drive-in have lit their screen. What better way to social distance than in your car. And come say ‘Hi’ to your Playhouse Movie Theatre staff/volunteers at the Concession Bus, who are safely serving those great movie concession favorites.
July 10, 11, 12 feature: Star Wars: Empire Strikes Back
Return to 1980 for the 40th anniversary showing, when this feature was the sequel…way before it became Episode V! And see the real (non-CGI) Carrie Fisher.
Message to our movie-goers regarding COVID-19
Adhering to the State’s stay-at-home and non-essential business closure, the Playhouse Movie Theatre is darkened (temporarily) during this trying time to keep our community and staff safe. We will reopen as soon as it is prudent to do so and will update this site as new information becomes available.

The Playhouse board would like to thank all members for their engagement in this issue, and for the overwhelming support, the members have shown for the Playhouse and this initiative to establish more flexibility in fundraising to finance the operations and improvement of the theater. While the coronavirus has left the Playhouse darkened for a time, we are working during this intermission to ensure that the future of the Playhouse is even brighter!
For 2020, a sample of features we are trying to bring to the Playhouse. Keep returning to this website for updates. Don’t go anywhere else, see a feature in Randolph.
And there is more…
100 years and still going strong. 2019 marked the start of our centennial. CORVID-19 has placed all our planned celebrations on-hold, for now.
