The Music Box Theatre opened in 1929, which was considered to be the younger brother of other theatres owing to its seating capacity of 800 folks. It is a smaller, though charming and well equipped version of the larger theatres. It has a sound picture theatre which is rapidly took place of the other “deluxe” palaces. The architectural style is an eclectic melange of Italian, Spanish and Pardon-My-Fantasy put together.

Music Box Theatre Reviews & Ratings

  • Nice little movie theater that offers a unique screening experience. We sat in the main theater and there's a good number seats, though they aren't terribly comfortable. Tickets are little pricey ($14/ticket) but it's to be expected for the cool ambiance and live organ player before shows. They sell typical concession drinks and light snacks. The screen is a good size and the sound system fills the room. It's worth checking this place out and catching a flick.

  • It's a memorable and magical feeling experience coming into this theater. It's like traveling into the past and becoming a part of the theater's 90 year history. Thank you for doing special 70mm showings of such incredible films!! I'll always keep coming back. ♥️

  • Grand old theatre with nice staff. Cool lounge area. Interesting mix of movies. Saw Mexican horror in smaller theatre (wished we had chosen beautiful mainstage instead!)

  • It is a wonderful theatre! The remodeling was done exceptional well. Love that the lights remained in the ceiling- so many old venues removed them when they were remolded. And the fact they still have the old pipe organ is a nice touch. Plant go back for some of the organ events on a sat or sunday.

  • Very nice old, vintage decor. Awesome organ player in the main theater. Well kept bathrooms. Seats are comfortable but have no cup holders.
