The Darkside is a unique experience. Run by some of the nicest people I've met, their policies are gentle and generous, fair prices, and unusual movies that are often excellent. They have a generous assortment of pleasantly priced goodies to eat, and popcorn won't be...More

Darkside Cinema is the best movie theater around Corvallis. When I fist moved into town, I would visit almost every weekend. Great spot!

Small theaters with modest concessions. Very friendly staff. Good selection of independent films and limited number of foreign films.

Terrific independent film house. Offers a wide range of independent and foreign films and documentaries. The Darkside cares about their patrons and the community. A real love of film here, humor abounds in the way it's run. Good popcorn too.
