Dear Moviegoers and VT Guests,
You don’t have to get on a plane this coming Sunday to meet the pilots that have accepted their mission to bring the Gospel to the “Ends of the Earth.” Mission Aviation Fellowship (MAF) will land right on the Vassar Theatre big screen.

You may also travel to 14th Century France to experience drama and action at that time, without donning armor and carrtying assorted weaponry. Discover the true story of a woman who stands by the truth after her husband and his best friend become bitter rivals, fighting a duel to the death. Finally, you and your family can join young Barney on his adventurous journey when his B*Bot Ron goes wrong…

We are pleased to present three very different films in one place.

Plus: popular recent titles such as “Dune,” “No Time to Die,” and “Cry Macho” join the 40+ selections available for PC@VT Private Cinema & Gaming. “Dear Evan Hansen” remains available to welcome fellow students during school hours.

On Thursday, in honor of Veterans Day, Vassar Theatre invites Veterans and Active Military to share Evan's journey of hope and self-discovery. Tickets are free for them and so is popcorn.
The U.S. Army Voices and United States Army Band, ‘Pershing's Own,’ performs “You Will Be Found” from the hit musical and film, “Dear Evan Hansen.” A song full of hope... 

Vassar Theatre shares these beautiful words and powerful message of support with past and present members of the military. We thank them for their Service.

And thank you, as always, for visiting.

We wish you well and send regards,
Andreas & Susan, Kaitlyn, Jon and Darren.

Stay healthy and happy.
