The Washoe Theater has been in continuous use since 1936 and features terrific art-deco design features and still plays current films. It has a large balcony, the original lobby woodwork, unique seating, beautiful ceiling art and awesome chandeliers. A view from the stage in front of the movie screen offers the best perspective. We met an enthusiastic Washoe volunteer and... More

This movie house brings back all the nostalgic charm of the past. It has been maintained to represent the days it was originally built. It takes you back in time with very reasonably priced movies and an additional .50 cents to sit in the balcony. Even the candy and food item prices are not inflated. Making this a very cost... More

One of the last great theaters built. A must see. The inside of the main theater is so lovely. It was built in the 1920's and the beautiful stage and side curtains are wonderful. The sound is excellent and we visit often.

Was in town visiting a friend and wanted to check out this theater! Great historic charm and cheap concessions! We payed the extra coin for the upper level seating. Would definitely come back next time I'm in town!

The Washoe theater is a step back in time the interior is beautifully done kept in original condition. It's on the national register for historic theaters. Movies are a great value, sitting in the balcony is the best!

Whenever we travel to this part of Montana, we always make sure we catch a movie at the Washoe. Tonight, despite the snow, we ventured to Anaconda to see a movie. We were greeted by Ross who just finished shoveling the walkway. He and his very welcoming crew made us feel at home. And what a BEAUTIFUL theatre the WASHOE... More

The Washoe Theatre is beautifully designed and painted in Art Deco style and is listed on the Historic Register. The beautiful interior has been preserved. You can see shows and special events either in downstairs or upstairs seating.

The Washoe theater is the best movie going experience you can get. Tickets are fairly cheap, and you can actually get something at concessions for a decent price. The balcony is a nice option for an extra 50₡ a seat. The theater interior is a marvel in itself and will keep you entertained while you wait for the movie to... More

We just returned from seeing San Andreas in 3D and what a wonderful time. The theater is a classic and if you are in or close to Anaconda make it a point to take in a show as you will not be disapointed. Just beautiful inside.
