Great for a rainy day activity. The crab ragoon was amazing! Watch a movie after to really round off your Starlight experience

This seats maybe 100 people and has a relatively small screen in this era of home theaters, but the quality of the projection was fine and movie choices quite appealing to an older crowd.

We stopped into this cool little cafe type place for some cold drinks and appetizers. This is a locals place and nothing fancy .... no A/C. Apparently, it is also a movie theatre which is a hoot given it's size but we weren't there to see a movie. We had chicken flatbread and chicken wings. Both were very good and... More

I suspect that when it rains this place is packed so don't plan your trip due to the weather but due to the selection of entertainment. We had a nice lunch here. The waitress/bartender was hustling as it appeared a little understaffed during off hours. It was a satisfactory meal. We did not make a movie time, but what a... More

We have been coming to Nantucket for one week each summer for the last 14 years. This is the first year we decided to try the Starlight for dinner. I am not happy about having to write this but this was hands down the worst meal that not only have I ever had on Nantucket but the worst meal that... More

One does not usually associate awesome food with a movie theatre. While there are many "cinema pubs" most off just the basics of food to go with the movie. This venue breaks that stereotype. I stopped into the venue at the end of what had become a very long day. I expected to find very basic comfort food. The menu... More

I really don't know what happened to this place- I used to come here on the regular, even do my homework when I was in high school, for /years/, and was gone for two... I return, and the people that worked there that I used to find kind have been incredibly rude to me the last several times I've been,... More

I see they have mixed reviews. Well I for one loved their food!!! Ok so there was one server running around, who cares? She was attentive I told her I was very picky when it came to wine, she accommodated me, and the scallops were amazing. My husband who happens to be a chef and I went in on the... More

We saw Tarzan here on one rainy night. Enjoyed it. Good picture and sound quality. Nice little "starlit ceiling." One hint: If you eat dinner in the restaurant beforehand, you get guaranteed seats in the movie. We'd go again.

This little theatre is such a great find in the town. I highly recommend that you go to experience this. You can have dinner there and then see a movie, in a cute little old fashion little theatre. Or you can have some yummy popcorn and watch a movie in the quaint little theatre! Try it you'll really enjoy it!
