I live around the street and I look for any excuse to visit the theater. The best time of year is when they host screenings for the Newport Beach Film Festival (usually in April), when they show a variety of films in quick succession. Otherwise, whoever does their movies selection tends to choose lousy ones (subjectively speaking) and they tend... More

Saw Andrew Dice Clay. Took us 40 minutes to get our wrist bands to get in. Total mayhem. People cutting in line, obnoxious security, 1 guy doing wristbands for the entire event. People were furious. Lines for drinks took forever, theatre was hot and has no AC. Lights were out in the mens bathroom. This place is horribly managed and... More

Lido Theatre is located in Newport Beach. They have live concerts and show movies. I went to see the band Long Run in February with two friends. ID must be shown as they serve alcohol. Parking is street and a lot at the end of the street. Great venue...great concert, intimate, no bad seat in the house, dancing up front.... More

Old time movie theatre, that was revamped a bit, so inside is ok. They seem to only show "artsie" movies no one wants to see. Sometimes they have showings of the newport film festival here, so that was very nice.

Back in the Days my Friend, I thought they would never end, "Those Were the Days". A group of fellow travelers on a Magical Mystery Tour, took a ride one night, 1967, levitating through the Lido Theatre door, playing was the Yellow Submarine, all in attendance were invited by a collective empathic consciousness, everything was said without a whispered word....

We attended the Queen Nation Concert in January at the Lido Theatre and had a fabulous experience. We love the Queen tribute band, but seeing them in this small, intimate theatre, was just icing on the cake! This art-deco venue, is fantastic. It will be even better once they get a food and beverage license so they can serve something... More

This little art deco gem is very cool. Back in the day, going to the movies was an event, and this theatre represents that made of mind!

Not too many of these left! The LIDO is a ONE screen old fashioned theatre, but well restored and preserved. Marine art from the 40's decorates the walls and ceilings. Love it.

Great little theater - give it a try. New movies in an updated old fashioned (clean and remodeled) little theater. No hassles and easy access. Nice to be in a stand alone without a big mall!
