The Lido is a well maintained, historic theater in Newport Beach. It has a single screen, which means that its seating capacity is huge. You will never have a problem finding good seat, even with popular first run movies. The staff is uniformly friendly and...More

Charming, historical movie house showing movies on a single screen. We love sitting in the balcony! We live close by and walk to catch a 1st run movie just about every month.

I love single screen cinemas! There are so few of them. I'm glad the Lido was restored & reopened. The remodel/restoration was beautifully done. The Art Deco details reminds me of The Casino in Catalina Island. It's so charming I wish I lived closer, I'd...More

Love this theatre! One of the few old, glamorous theaters left. On a recent trip to Newport Beach we had dinner and then stopped in at the Lido to see 'Sully'. Love the old Hollywood feel of this theater!

We went to see the theater itself not a movie-- it was beautiful and art deco style. I felt like I was in miami beach, but it was very cool to see in person. If you are going to the area I'd check it out.

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,...More
