We are getting closer to our opening! We've been working really hard since September 1st to ready our location at 29 West State Street in Doylestown borough to open.

Tickets will also be available at the door and are $8 for Doylestown Food Co-op Members and $10 for everyone else, including County Theater Members. We have sold out in the past, so we advise advanced purchase.
