We went to the movies at the historic Grand Lake Theater. It has been in the area since 1926. We enjoyed seeing the movie on the large screen.

We do come here for a movie as the theater is big and well-maintained. Come for the big screen and big sound, and the neighborhood is great for finding a meal. Parking a little difficult.

We visited the day after Christmas to see Star Wars final film. The theatre is obviously a huge piece of history for the neighborhood. The matinee was reasonably priced, the seats were comfortable, and the sound system has been updated and was worthy of Star Wars.

As long as you sit on the main floor (not the balconies), this is a comfy place to see a movie on the big screen with excellent sound. Parking can be a bit difficult, prepare to pay at a meter.

The thing I love most about this theatre is the popcorn. They have the BEST movie popcorn out of all the theatres I've been too. But here's my beef - the cost of said popcorn is high! I know popcorn is expensive no matter what movie theatre you go to, but the size bag they serve here for the price is ridiculous. And it's the perfect size bag for me, but it's almost $5! That said, I love coming to watch movies here because it's different and it seems that the previews are way shorter. The downstairs theatre is quite large, so depending on the movie, you could arrive late and still get a good seat. They have smaller theatres around the corner and upstairs, and just know the upstairs theatre has many, many stairs. As of this writing, most movies before 5:45 p.m. are discounted - even on the weekends. I'm all about supporting local businesses, and this one has been in the community longer than I've lived in the Bay (going on 20 years), and I hope it continues on for decades to come.
