Visit the historic Willard Straight Theatre, home of Cornell Cinema, considered one of the best campus film exhibition programs in the country, screening over 150 different films throughout the academic year. Built in 1925, the theatre features fresco wall murals depicting Shakespearean scenes on one side and scenes from Greek classic theater on the other. The theatre’s facilities offer the best projection in Ithaca, including digital, digital 3D and archival 35mm reel-to-reel projection. Visitors are invited to tour the projection booth, learn more about Cornell Cinema’s Fall ’19 season line-up, purchase an All-Access Pass (just $20 for undergraduates and good for all regularly priced screenings for the entire academic year!) and browse through a collection of movie posters on sale—perfect for decorating a dorm room!
