NOTE: The official website contains this message:
As of August 2nd, 2012, the Bay Theatre is closed.
Please check this site for updates on our re-opening, and thank you for your continued interest and support.
TICKETS: $8 general admission, $6 seniors (55+) and students with I.D.
FEATURES: classic and silent films; the Mighty Wurlitzer Pipe Organ (occasional concerts given). Recently shifted to a new policy: instead of just showing classic movies on Saturday-Sunday-Monday, the theatre now shows second run films for one-week engagements, with two screenings a night.
FANTASY FILMS, HORROR MOVIES & SCI-FI CINEMA: The Bay Theatre's revival screenings are peppered with genre titles throughout the year. During October, they tend to schedule lots of classic horror movies, usually with some kind of atmospheric art display in the theatre lobby.
DRAWBACK: you have to make the long drive to Seal Beach, but at least it’s a nice area.
