Railroad Square Cinema
Railroad Square Cinema offers a venue for screening alternative films that don’t show up in chain cinemas. Students count on Railroad’s selections to be eclectic, funky, and diverse. They also sell unconventional snacks (like gourmet chocolate) and have a rotating display of local art in the lobby.
Ticket prices range from $5 for matinees to $6.50 (with a student ID) for evening screenings. Every other Wednesday Railroad Square hosts Colby Night at the Movies, and that night’s feature film costs only $1 for Colby students, faculty, and staff.
Thirty years after Ken Eisen ’73 cofounded Railroad Square Cinema, it continues to be a haven for film lovers in Maine and a favorite weekend destination for Colby students looking to get off the hill.
