The Pocono Community Theater

By Kathleen Kraemer


The Pocono Community Theater (PCT) is a small local theater on Courtland Street in the heart of East Stroudsburg.

The small, three-screen theater has been a fixture of the town since 1884 when it debuted as a vaudeville theater and opera house.

It was converted, and became the first theater in Monroe County to present moving pictures in 1913. Today, theater continues to be an important part of the culture of the community. They hold art galleries, live shows, revival movies, book clubs and even bi-monthly bingo.

Their café is “a full service coffee shop” starring treats from local bakeries, popcorn covered in real butter, and a cozy sitting area to relax with a good book before your film.

PCT offers ESU students a discount on tickets, and on Wednesdays, they host Warrior Wednesdays. With an e-card, students will be eligible for not only a discounted ticket, but also popcorn for $1.

Beginning tomorrow, the theater will be featuring live comedian Johnny Watson, “A Walk in the Woods” and “Grandma.”
