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!

This is a 1930s movie palace. The patina is worn thin, but it's still a pretty cool place to catch a movie. Plus, they serve beer and wine.

Projected film was dark and not well-displayed. Otherwise, seats were comfortable, liked the history and age of the theatre but quality was lacking.

I love this little theater. Its old but thats what gives it its character. Still showing first releases. I hope this theater stays put for many years. And they still play the Rocky Horror Picture Show!

Our local theater. Really old fashioned (from the 30's) but so charming. Inexpensive but showing the latest movies and indies. Rocky Horror Picture show every week!!! Who could ask for anything else.

One of our favorite spots for a rainy day or slow evening this old theatre makes me remember what going to the show used to be like. Big seats , lots of leg room, good popcorn and candy at reasonable prices. Movies are current and...More

Stopped in to catch a flick on a rainy Sunday. This is the type of theatre that I used to go to when I was a kid. I believe that the admission and snack bar pricing was considerably less that the big chains.
