Review of The Beach Theatre - CLOSED

The Beach Theatre

Attraction details
Owner description: The Beach Theatre is an independent, one-screen movie theatre that plays new, independent, foreign, cult classics and family movies! We serve more than 30 varieties of wine and beer and have the cheapest tickets around at 5-7 dollars! Built in 1939, you get a taste of the golden era of movies with every ticket! While the theatre is reminiscent of the good old days, our movies are shown on a digital, high-definition projector (when possible; some films only come on "film") and we have Dolby Digital Surround Sound! The Beach Theatre seats approximately 246 people and we have a large stage in the front of the theatre, which allows for special events, such as live bands and acts like "The Rocky Horror Picture Show" performed with a live cast here on Saturday nights at 11:30pm!

It's worth the time to attend a showing here. It's a bit out of the way and be careful to feed the meters - parking is enforced.

“Movie Time”

We were blown away on Sunday night when we migrated from the beach to the pool to watch a great movie and have the kids swim and eat pizza. It was a great ending for a great trip.

It's closed now, but, was in a great location....however, seats were terribly uncomfortable, and projector was antiquated. miss it, but, it needs to be refurbished.

“Closed!”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 23, 2013

Bummed to see this landmark closed. Evidently a dispute between the owners and in the end it shut down. Hope to see it resurrected as it was a great addition to Corey Avenue.

The theatre has closed! It clearly needed major renovations but apparently was not worth the effort.
