Current movies, Morro Bay location, cheapest prices anywhere. Seats are pretty comfy and elevated some so you get a good view. Good value for your money.

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!
