In addition to our long list of comedians, rock and roll legends and community performances, we’ve added a classic movie series offering popular titles such as “It’s A Wonderful Life”, “Indiana Jones and The Raiders of The Lost Ark”, “E.T. – The Extra Terrestrial” and, of course “The Rocky Horror Picture Show”.  With continued patronage, we will continue to bring world renowned acts to Ithaca.
