The Pageant Theatre

Theater Information

The Pageant Theater's mission is to celebrate the art of film and community by bringing the best in independent, world cinema, documentary, cult and classics to town. The Pageant brings people together to meet and connect through an authentic (and endangered) neighborhood arthouse theater experience. Essential Cinema since 1980.

Our snack bar offers organic popcorn (with vegan butter and nutritional yeast available on request!) local beer and cider (21+), natural soda and kombucha, and premium candy and snacks. Please no outside food or drink.

The Pageant is wheelchair accessible with gender neutral restrooms. Close captioning devices and audio description and/or assisted listening system headphones may be available for many films (look for the logo in film description).

A new air filtration and circulation system has been installed in the theater along with an increased attention to cleanliness. Masks are encouraged and available at theater. Please do not enter if you are feeling ill.

We respectfully acknowledge that The Pageant is located on unceded, ancestral, traditional land of the Mechoopda people. This acknowledgement reflects our commitment to shedding light on the ongoing legacies of settler colonialism.
