I love single screen cinemas! There are so few of them. I'm glad the Lido was restored & reopened. The remodel/restoration was beautifully done. The Art Deco details reminds me of The Casino in Catalina Island. It's so charming I wish I lived closer, I'd...More

Started going to this theater at age six in 1952 for the Saturday matinees for children. Admission was something like 10₵ and for that we got a full-length movie, a short and 4-6 cartoons. Occasionally a Hollywood, western movie would show up to entertain us...More

Love this theatre! One of the few old, glamorous theaters left. On a recent trip to Newport Beach we had dinner and then stopped in at the Lido to see 'Sully'. Love the old Hollywood feel of this theater!

We went to see the theater itself not a movie-- it was beautiful and art deco style. I felt like I was in miami beach, but it was very cool to see in person. If you are going to the area I'd check it out.

I live around the street and I look for any excuse to visit the theater. The best time of year is when they host screenings for the Newport Beach Film Festival (usually in April), when they show a variety of films in quick succession. Otherwise,...More

Old time movie theatre, that was revamped a bit, so inside is ok. They seem to only show "artsie" movies no one wants to see. Sometimes they have showings of the newport film festival here, so that was very nice.
