Our Cinema

In the spring of 2008, the City of Valdez was the first in the state of Alaska to install a digital cinema and show movies in that format. We now host live theatre performances and current Hollywood releases in the same space. Our main stage speakers on wheels and our 30’ x 16’ roll-up screen capability gives our theatre a rare flexibility to service our community’s events.

With the addition of Dolby 3D in 2010 we are a fully equipped movie theatre with 420 comfortable seats. Our reasonably priced concessions include a self-serve popcorn bar featuring a buttery topping and an assortment of popcorn seasonings at no extra charge!

An addition in 2020 we now offer online ticketing and a membership program for ease of access while building credit with us for free items. For more information click here for Online Ticketing Sales and our Cinema Membership Program!
