Welk, it is the only theater. Staff was friendly. Theater is very nostalgic. There are 3 theater rooms inside. The north wall is painted with the san diego skyline and the south has the coronado hotel painted on it. Even the bathrooms are retro. Very...More

We got a bit of history from the couple we sat next to in the theater. They said the renovation on it was great compared to 20 years ago. Wished we had known you CAN figure out what movie is in the 'big' theater. We...More

The 1947 landmark building theater underwent a major renovation in 2011 and you can bet the community had a large voice in keeping and restoring its original character and charm. Terrazzo floors, etched glass doors, and that marquee all celebrated the theater's art deco past....More

Decided to see Battle of the Sexes. Adorable little place. Maybe 20 seats. Talk about a throwback to by gone eras. Just another reason to ❤️Coronado Island

On the outside, this theater has a vintage billboard marquee that looks like it might be cute but a bit old-fashioned. We decided to see a movie and were floored by the gorgeous designs inside. It has been restored as an elegant and grand movie...More

They just don't make them like they used to. This tiny theater has all the amenities you want in a modern theater (comfy seats, good picture quality, clean, etc.), but with all the glamour of the golden age of Hollywood. It's a classic masterpiece of...More
