During the farmers market, on Wednesdays, from 10-2, they do volunteer led tours of the theater. The community is trying hard to save the theater as a central part of town, the tours give you the history and hopes for the future. Be willing to make a donation, as it is clear the theater needs it. Beautiful old place, still has some of the original seats and the original flys.

This theatre is worth going to just to see the beautiful restoration. But with comfortable seats, great acoustics and sightlines, it is a great place to take in a concert.

We were totally blown away by the fantastic job that is being done to restore this Egyptian theater to its former glory. The theater is one of a handful in the country still in existence. From the original Wurlitzer organ, to the original stage sets and the original murals and wall decorations throughout, this living museum is a wonder.

This old Movie theater reminds me of the Old days, from the 30's and 40's, it's old time furnishings and art decor is exceptional, and does have its Old and new movies, popcorn and candies and you are greeted at the door.
Well worth the visit.

The last time we went, we saw "Minions". It was funny. We also went in October and saw "The Mummy". We loved it. It was the black and white old one. I had told my 14 year old daughter about it before and she finally got to see it.

It is great that they are open. We have gone to see older movies on the big screen the prices are affordable for both the movie and concessions. We have also attended live music that was a most unexpected treat to hear for free.

An absolutely spunky and beautiful historic theater. Interesting history involved and the most stunning pipe organ. The sound will make your stomach feel hollow. I fell in love with it.

The theater is listed on the U.S. National Register of Historic Places.
The grand re-opening of this 89 year old theater occurred in June 2014 after being closed in 2005. More than 1 million dollars was raised to restore the theater back to original after falling into disrepair. The Egyptian decor is amazing with great detail given to paint colors, inlaid tiles, etc. and King Tut greets you when you walk in the doors. The seats have all been redone in red velvet like material and are so comfortable.
Near the stage is a mighty Wurlitzer Organ that was awakened when the doors were open for the Grand Re-Opening.
Now the theater is showing much loved movies from the past. A few weeks ago they showed the Sound of Music and an organist from Portland came down and played the movie songs on the Wurlitzer. This week they played Breakfast at Tiffany's with Audrey Hepburn. Another classic to be shown is The Blues Brothers!
And you can beat the admission prices - $4 for adults (non-members), $3 for senior members and they serve delicious popcorn with refills for 1/2 price.
There is so much more to say about this awesome place. I strongly suggest taking the time to read up about the theater and stopping by to see it and if possible attend a movie or activity. They are not open everyday so check their website for upcoming events. They are always looking for volunteers and donations to continue the restoration work,

Just watched 3 short films made by the Anthropology Department at Chico State. The films were viewed in the beautiful restored Egyptian Theater in downtown Coos Bay. One of the films was about the war with the Modoc Indians, one was about the Japanese internment camp in Tulelake California, and one was about the Owens Valley Water project that supplies Los Angeles with water. All three films were very interesting and came with a discussion afterwards it was also lively and spirited. The restoration on the theater is absolutely amazing they did a wonderful job of taking it back to the period piece that it was when it was originally made into a theater. Week films were thought provoking and interesting.
