Lafayette Theatre

Route 59, Suffern, NY 10901
(845) 369-8234
Lafayette Theatre

Review by: Rich D. from Home Theater Forum 02/12/07

Built in 1924, this is one of the grand single screen theatres in the greater Metro NY area.

They show first run films during the week with a mixture of older films mixed in on the weekends along with some special “theme” events a few times a year.

They also have a grand “Mighty Wurlitzer Theatre Pipe Organ” which makes me remember shows ‘back in the day’ at the Bushnell Theatre (in Hartford) and the Radio City Music Hall. The organ plays at special events and weekend shows for sure.

Also, the acoustics are pretty darn good for an old and large theatre and the management and employees a very friendly group.

Cinema Grade = A

After reading about this theatre here and there on the internet, I've upgraded the grade from from B to A. The Lafayette sounds like a fantastic cinema!
