Opened in 1924, the Lafayette Theatre first ushered filmgoers into the swashbuckling world of the French Revolution with the silent classic Scaramouche. And the movie palace, which is appointed with a grandiose French and Italian Renaissance style, has remained a Suffern touchstone by introducing 3D technology, CinemaScope, and, in the late 1980s, the Mighty Wurlitzer pipe organ. These days, jaunty organ tunes precede Friday- and Saturday-night features inside the renovated, single-screen theater, which specializes in first-run Hollywood flicks and classic cinema. One of the "great places to revel in cinematic grandeur," according to USA Today, the 942-seat theater surrounds visitors with ornate touches like a crystal chandelier, a red velvet curtain, and opera booths sans distracting Muppets.

Gold-leaf writing inscribed across the towering red portico at the entrance to The Shannon Rose Irish Pub announces what one might expect to find inside: “Premium Stouts,” “Irish Whiskies,” and other culinary staples of the Emerald Isles. Behind this imposing entryway lies a series of dining rooms that have a markedly different effect; chandeliers create a sense of intimacy as they illuminate Gaelic artwork and aged hardcovers resting on lofty bookshelves.

At TapHouse Grille, 24 different craft beers gush from taps as plates of gourmet pub fare emerge from the kitchen. Chefs shower pastas and pizzas in fresh meats and vegetables or whip up entrees that feature freshly caught fish and quality cuts of meat. In addition to imported and domestic brews, the family-friendly establishment pleases adults with martinis and cocktails, and it treats tots to a full kids' menu and an absence of height-restrictive carnival rides.

Brick walls and ceilings and glistening wood floors surround the casual dining room, where flat-screen televisions beam down from the walls. TapHouse Grille also hosts special events throughout the week, including a Sunday brunch buffet with a live jazz band.
