This theater is at the heart of Coos Bay. It plays old classics and supports the community with various shows and projects. No first run stuff, just a community theater.

When they started, they built a garage. They changed their mind and changed it into a theater. It offers movies and on Sunday, the Court Life Church have service at 10:30 A.M. It is attractive with its yellow. the rim is red. Worthwhile to see!

After hiking several state parks we really just wanted a bowl of hot clam chowder (Sharkbites) and a bed. But the Egyptian Theater looked awfully interesting so we wandered over. It just happened to be about 20 minutes before showtime - Hitchcock's Vertigo, which neither...More
