The Grand Lake Theatre is an 84-year-old Oakland movie palace. The structure is such that it will take you back a century. It has big ornamental windows, rich ornate chandeliers and classic artworks preserved to perfection.

Although the hall will take you to a different era, do not for a minute doubt its facilities. The hall is well equipped with state-of-the-art technology which includes 2D and 3D projectors and comfortable seating. With the ticket rates affordable, one must live this combined experience of sitting in a palace and watching a contemporary movie.

Special attraction of this place includes the Organ plays on Fridays and Saturdays which is an absolutely delightful old tradition that continues to date.

Grand Lake Theater Reviews & Ratings

  • Rustic vintage theater. Definitely a must experience. Food is primarily ed fair as well as movie pricing. Seats were comfortable. Only downside is you have to go up 3 flights of stairs to get to the restrooms.

  • I love the Grand Lake. Beautiful landmark theater. Owner supports free speech. Oakland's gem! (Warning, break-in. Don't leave valuables in your car in back lot)

  • Theater is clean and the staff is great. There is a parking structure with decent prices (I paid $7 for 3 1/2 hours). The prices are excellent, for the price of a ticket at some other the places I bought a ticket, hot dog, candy a drink and a popcorn. It doesn't have 20 movies like the bigger places but it's a comfortable and affordable theater and I'd recommend checking it out.

  • This is a fabulous theater, beautifully restored. The owner is also very courageous, politically aware, and gifts the theater to groups raising consciousness on vital issues. There is a handicapped access restroom downstairs! There are additional restrooms located upstairs. I greatly enjoy coming to the Grand Lake for regular movies, as well as for their special events. It has a great ambiance and a wonderful staff.

  • I absolutely love this theater... The matinee prices are so reasonable and they serve free popcorn on Mondays (Except for Holidays)... I love that the theater has an "Old Hollywood" feel and that the decor matches that...I am so excited that I live in walking distance as it gives me the opportunity to go back as much as I want!
