Did you know that Lancaster City has its own movie theater? For over 20 years Zoetropolis Cinema Stillhouse has been serving up great independent films and treats to patrons. They have moved twice since first opening their doors in the 90s and their current home is one you shouldn’t miss!
Zoetropolis is newly re-opened at 112 N. Water Street, operating under a new model – the Cinema Stillhouse. It’s a unique balance of different things including a theater/restaurant/distillery combo. The building space itself is shared with two other local businesses – Columbia Kettle Works and La Cocina Mexicana. Although they remain independent entities, these three local businesses compliment each other very well!
Zoetropolis offers outstanding alternative film content that they’ve become well known for…art house film, independent, documentary and foreign films. They are beginning to add more live music events to their calendar. Currently, Zoetropolis is featuring 1-2 nights of live music performance per month, when the whole place transforms into a fantastic concert venue. Other live events that can be found at Zoetropolis include The Lancaster Story Slam and Lanc Out Loud Comedy nights.
What’s new, besides the fabulous location and live music? They are on the brink of opening their own restaurant and distillery. Their distiller is excited to be sharing his own quality spirits with the initial offerings including vodka, gin and rum. The restaurant will offer a shared plates menu and when the weather is nice, their large garage doors will lift to allow for outdoor courtyard seating.
Zoetropolis is not like just any other movie theater. Films are carefully selected for content and substance. Movies are shown that bring value and meaning, artistic relevance, and a social connection – making you think in new and interesting ways. The experience is enhanced further by the viewing environment. The theater offers comfortable seating to hang out afterwards allowing patrons to discuss and process while still completely in the moment.
