Arts and Entertainment Seattle, Washington





Regularly voted Seattle’s best movie theater, Cinerama combines our fan favorite - chocolate popcorn - with sleek comfort and futuristic decor to offer Seattle’s most epic movie experience. Cinerama opened just a year after the World’s Fair came to town in 1963. Purchased and restored by Paul G. Allen in the late 1990’s, Cinerama has since become a favorite venue for Seattle moviegoers of all ages, from families to Star Wars buffs and action enthusiasts.
