The Crandell Theatre
Most of FilmColumbia’s films are screened at Crandell Theatre, located at 46-48 Main Street in Chatham, NY. The Crandell Theatre is Columbia County’s oldest and largest single screen theatre. An architectural gem, the Crandell has remained basically unchanged since built in 1926 by Walter S. Crandell, as a vaudeville house. The theatre seats 534 patrons, with 112 of the seats in the balcony. The Crandell Theatre is owned and operated by a community non-profit organization. The theatre operates year round showing 1st and 2nd run studio films in the evenings and art, independent and foreign films every Sunday at noon.
