The Melba is an excellent theatre to visit. It has recently been remodeled, and has been brought back to its original glory.

I'm very glad someone had the foresight to save and restore this lovely treasure. Beautiful building, and having economical movie offerings (some free movies at holiday times too) introduces the aesthetic of a different time to younger folks. And the snacks are WAY less expensive...More

I have visited this renovated old movie theater recently on two occasions. I absolutely love it. Thanks to great dedication of some fine local citizens, it looks probably better than when it was brand, new years ago. Batesville downtown is slowly coming back to life....More

The owners have not only a new building they have new programs and films specifically targeted to families and younger adults.

A welcome addition to a revitalized downtown. Very spacious and comfortable with a large screen and excellent sound. Bargain tickets and concessions are a plus for families.

I'm so glad to have this theater with a classic feel in my hometown. Unbelievably affordable and really good theater snacks (that are also at reasonable prices). Cherry on top is the fact that is located on historical Main Street.

We are so glad that the building was converted into a theater in 1940 downtown. We have one of most beautiful main streets and the community support makes it even better!

Most shows are $4 per ticket. Occasionally we have a special event and the prices are different. In that case, we post the prices online in advance.
