The theatre has closed! It clearly needed major renovations but apparently was not worth the effort.

Overview
More
The Beach Theatre is an independent, one-screen movie theatre that plays new, independent, foreign, cult classics and family movies! We serve more than 30 varieties of wine and beer and have the cheapest tickets around at 5-7 dollars! Built in 1939, you get a taste of the golden era of movies with every ticket! While the theatre is reminiscent of the good old days, our movies are shown on a digital, high-definition projector (when possible; some films only come on "film") and we have Dolby Digital Surround Sound! The Beach Theatre seats approximately 246 people and we have a large stage in the front of the theatre, which allows for special events, such as live bands and acts like "The Rocky Horror Picture Show" performed with a live cast here on Saturday nights at 11:30pm!

Bummed to see this landmark closed. Evidently a dispute between the owners and in the end it shut down. Hope to see it resurrected as it was a great addition to Corey Avenue.

Always enjoy going to the Beach Theater when I lived in FL. Still go there when in town visiting.It is the way all theaters should be, with relaxed atmosphere,quirky,artsy good movies and able to have a beer or glass of wine.

I will miss the Beach Theatre in St Pete Beach; Always will remember my wife’s surprise when she saw Rocky Horror Picture Show for the first time.

The Beach finally closed down last week. There was insufficient income to survive. It is doubtful that anyone will save the building.

Hopefully she will reopen soon. Love you Beach Theater? Great venue. Will not be forgotten. Will most without a doubt miss the awesome sat nite RHPC. Plus the most indulgent Big Lebowski night.

loved this venue and appreciate the alternative shows they sponsor. This is the kind of place that America needs. Rock on Beach Theater

I absolutely love the idea of patronizing a local movie theater especially one which supports non-mainstream films. Unfortunately, you never know when this place will be open and showing movies (despite their listings online).

Love this theater, but it doesn't love me. They have been closed for three consecutive Tuesdays due I think to AC issues. The problem is that it is 30 minutes from my house and there was no way to know that it was closed, as...More

Very few like this theatre still left. Don't miss a chance to take in a good film, with great service and charm.
