I've always wanted to see the inside of this theater and yesterday we did. It took me back in time. The seats were very comfy and the distance between each row was great, not like the theaters of today. The sound system was amazing and the smell of popcorn was very tempting but we passed. Great old restored theater!!

Thats from the outside, once inside it is as current as any, happened to catch the Jersey Boys, so for a California child of the sixties it was marvelous.

This old time downtown movie theatre has great seats and screen. It shows first run films and often has special showings of other films including past favorites. Many special events as well......not to be missed.

This is a Historic Theater that has been revamped for new digital movies and surround sound. The main screen has newer chairs were the arm rests go up and down, while the other screens have older ones. There is popcorn, candy and soda for purchase, and water is available for free, but no nachos. The bathrooms are clean and stocked.... More

The main room of the Del Oro is a beautiful place to watch a movie. Get there early so that you can see the architecture and artwork on the walls and ceilings. It is really a cool place and raises the level of beauty of the experience. Also, its location in downtown Grass Valley makes it a great place to... More

Liked the upgraded stadium seating in the other rooms but the stairs are hard for some. The main theater has great atmosphere and takes me back to when I was younger as this is how all the theaters looked.

We didn't use the snack bar but it looked nice and the popcorn was freshly popped. Nice seating. I believe they are going through an upgrade. We saw Guardians of the Galaxy in 3D and it worked great.

This is like the theatres that I went to as a kid in Southern Calif. The new seats are comfy. I need a movie fix!
