The Historic Lafayette Theater
Built in 1924, named for the Revolutionary War hero the Marquis de Lafayette, the Lafayette Theater began with the silent film "Scaramouche" at 25 cents a ticket, then became home to live vaudeville and film presentations. In the 1990's, Robert Benmosche, a resident of Suffern (now departed), purchased the building. Since then, the Benmosche Family has continued to invest in the preservation of this community gem. Today, the theater remains open and welcomes guests with first run and classic films, film festivals and other live performances. Visit the theatre's website for a listing of current movies as well! www.lafayettetheatersuffern.com
