We're Back!

The Buchanan Theater is open and showing movies on Friday, Saturday and Sunday each weekend. Since COVID19 struck, movie companies have not released any new content so we're taking this opportunity to show some "oldies but goodies" that have been requested.


Research show Looney’s Ferry site along the James has a long history; a Colonial one that dates to 1740s

The documentary is free but does require tickets.  In addition to the documentary, Ed McCoy will be debuting his book and David Austin & Ted McAllister will be playing some music that was composed for the 250th anniversary of Botetourt.  Tickets are available at the Buchanan Town Office and the Botetourt Historical Museum in Fincastle.  There will be a book signing by Ed McCoy out front after the movie.  ~ 60 min.
