Description

The Moviehouse is a classically designed building with an imposing clock tower sitting atop Main Street, Millerton.  Commissioned by Julius Benedict, it was built in 1903 as Grange # 796 and soon after converted to a movie theater with a ballroom on the second floor.

Over the period of a century, the theater evolved experiencing the ups and downs of the film industry until it was purchased in the seventies by its present owners. After an extensive structural and aesthetic restoration it was reopened as the Moviehouse in 1978 and since then has become a much beloved theater and cultural center as well earning a place in the National Register of Historic Places.

The Moviehouse has contributed significantly to creating a vibrant community in Millerton drawing a loyal audience from New York as well as neighboring Connecticut and Massachusetts.  One of the largest independent cinemas in the Hudson Valley, it has three theaters and a screening room with a total capacity of nearly 500 seats.  It offers state of the art DCP compliant equipment, a central Library Management System and satellites that help bring Event Cinema like National Theater and Met Opera Live to the region.  In addition, there is a café and gallery space for art exhibitions and other community events. The highly skilled staff is willing to stay and help continue to operate the Moviehouse.

An exciting opportunity for the next steward to build on the towering legacy or unfold a new bold vision to take the magic of big screen cinema to the next level.

Less than 10 minutes from Salisbury, CT and 35 minutes from Hudson, Rhinebeck, and Great Barrington, MA.
