March Update, please read over information, updates and links below. Check this post periodically for edits or updates throughout the month.

Our Covid-19 restrictions will remain in place into 2021 following the City of Valdez health mandates and our department’s guidelines. We ask that everyone who attends our features help us remain open to the public by complying with the following:

A cloth mask is required at all times when in the building, per the city mandate. Our seating capacity is set at 60 people per showing for social distancing purposes; allowing patrons to remove their masks only while enjoying their concessions. It is important that patrons sit with their group when attending and maintain social distancing with patrons outside your group.

Our butter station will not be available for self-serve, although we will have options available at the concessions register for your popcorn preferences. At the end of the film please leave your armrests down for cleaning and dispose of your containers to limit staff interaction with your items.

Tickets are now be available online or in person, our doors will be open one hour before the start of the showing to allow for early ticket purchases or early admission. This will allow everyone to spread out arrival time and to maintain social distance when in our lobby. Online sales will become available the day before the first showing and be available throughout the weekend. Click the link below to purchase tickets online. 

Certificates for 2020 will be accepted thought 2021 and you can use them at any showing that still has seats available, bringing them in early to any open showing or we can create a booking for another day. 

We also have a special event this month!

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!
