Cinema
“Downing bridges between a repertoire film house and a popular movie house. The sweets and popcorn are homemade--the coffee and tea are real--and they are made to order and priced right. The lean back chairs are both great and awkward but make it unique! ”

Café
“A great place for planned or impromptu meetings with good coffee, strong wifi, local art on the walls and an open, spacious feel. Limited food options include mac and cheese, soup, bagels and pastries. Just a couple of blocks from restaurant row on Liberty Street, a block away from City Hall, walking distance from both Orange County Community College and Mount Saint Mary College. ”

“Wonderful food in a quiet, old world atmosphere. Step back in time to the turn of the 20th century at the historic North Plank Road Tavern. In operation since 1801, the North Plank Road Tavern is an attractive old-time roadhouse reminiscent of the era when taverns punctuated long carriage journeys on plank roads. ”
