The Ambler Theater is a nonprofit, community-based movie theater that specializes in independent, art, and foreign films in addition to a variety of special events ranging from Saturday Kid’s Matinees to classic Hollywood films. The classic theater also regularly present local filmmakers and host discussion groups and lectures.

Opened by Warner Bros. on December 31, 1928, the Ambler Theater first showed the movie “Our Dancing Daughters” starring Joan Crawford.

With increased competition, the Ambler Theatre ceased showing 35mm films about 1969 to 1970. Starting in the 1970’s and running until 1997, the Ambler Theatre was operated as a Christian cinema. Then, the Ambler Theatre closed again until ultimately selling to the nonprofit Ambler Theatre, Inc, who contributed $2,000,000 in renovations.
