Oh Wilma, how I do love you. With your amazing music and your local beers and your fantastic movies...there is not a bad seat in the house. Your staff is always friendly, and I have seen some of my favorite bands, so close to the musicians and such a small venue...you are always so intimate. From Jane's Addiction to an... More

Been here a few times now, and not only is it old and beautiful, its also got enough room to dance. The bar is the only downfall... expect to pay $6 for a 12 oz micro (as of 2014 December). The staff always seems friendly enough though.

The Wilma shows independent films and live concerts. It is an old theater with that certain old time funk about it. All though the seats are in desperate need of repair, I find the whole experience fun and entertaining.

I love this little theater! I was here on both visits to Missoula. They run old movies, so the first visit I saw Spike Lee's Do the Right Thing. The second visit I saw The Goonies. It's $5 for a movie, $2 for popcorn and $1 for hot tea. The popcorn line is usually pretty long, but that doesn't stop... More

My first experience at the Wilma will be hard to ever top. I took my daughter and her boyfriend to Nickel Creek and we were absolutely thrilled with everything. The building is fabulously old and ornate and well maintained, the sound was perfect, and the people of Missoula are the best in a crowd...fun but not obnoxious. If you ever... More

I've been to many many concerts here and all over and there is something so personal about the Wilma. It is slightly run down but its very old so that's expected

The local theaters were showing fairly unappealing big summer movies. This little theater was a refreshing change. We took a look at both theaters - the large one needs a little restoration on the seats, but looked fairly comfortable and would make a fine concert venue as well. We saw a movie in the smaller theater - comfortable. A cool... More

Built in 1922, the inside of the downtown theatre remains fairly true to its original make. If you think the current owners are cheap and not giving it an upgrade, then go to the restrooms. Modern and immaculate, you then understand that they are keeping the rest of the establishment true to its roots. We applaud you for that decision.... More
