This relatively small, but spacious and updated, theatre has great popcorn and a friendly staff. The movies are always current, and are often first-releases. All shows are just $8 (if the tourists are in town, be sure to get there early). The interior was renovated...More

Only one screen. Awesome price. Comfy chairs. Explanatory website. They also have hot beverages! If simplicity suits you, thus place is great. I've never been disappointed.

We enjoy going to this local theater and the movies are usually current, popular movies. The price is reasonable but I wish they had free refills for their popcorn like other theaters.

The Bay Theater is a solid part of the Morro Bay scene. They present the first run movies in a comfortable and cozy environment. The staff is friendly, the popcorn is fresh, and it's a great value!

This is an old theater - but recently refurbished. Old means it is HUGE with curtain walls, open beams and fans to circulate the air. $8 admission for everyone for every show. Popcorn is excellent and cheap in comparison to other theaters. The owner is...More

Start with the classic neon marque before you even enter! You FEEL like you're going to "the movies" as you walk up the street to the theater. The staff is always friendly and welcoming. Given the price tag on going to the cinema these days,...More
