Everything You Need To Know About Claire – Stardew Valley Expanded

Stardew Valley Expanded (SVE) is a widely popular, unofficial mod expansion pack for Stardew Valley. Released in 2019, SVE added numerous new locations, events, items, and characters to 

One of the added characters and bachelorette options to SVE is Claire Whitley, a quiet, reserved woman who works as a cashier at JojaMart or the Movie Theater, if the Community Center is completed. 

Claire lives outside of Pelican Town in the countryside at 103 Prairie Road. She enjoys reading, watching films, and dancing. Her birthday is on Fall 8.

Movie Theater Preferences 

After restoring the abandoned JojaMart or purchasing all the community upgrades from Morris, the Movie Theater is built, allowing players to watch movies (alone or with a guest). The following are Claire’s loved, liked, and disliked movies to help you earn more friendship points with her. 

Note: Movies disliked by guests will not earn nor cost them any Friendship Points.


There are eight different movies in total. They repeat on a two year cycle, based on the season in which the Movie Theater is unlocked. All “Year 1” movies will cycle and then are followed by “Year 2” movies (and so on). Asking a guest to a movie can give 0 – 200 Friendship Points depending on the guest’s preferences. The following is Claire’s loved, liked, and disliked movies.

At the movie theater, players can buy snacks for their guests at the concession counter. Like gifts, an NPC earns various Friendship points from concession snacks. Unlike gifts, disliked snacks neither cost nor earn friendship points.
