First opened in 1932, the historic Alameda Theatre & Cineplex is a beautifully designed, Art Deco building with one of the largest screens in the Bay Area.
In 1979 after 47 years in business and due to the invention of television, the Theater closed for movies and tried some other activities including a roller rink, a dance hall, and a gymnastics center.
Luckily in 2000, the City of Alameda got involved, and after a $37,300,000 restoration, the theater reopened in 2008.
Now the vibrant and glamorous Alameda Theatre is a thriving staple in historic downtown. Newly released movies and live sport events entertain guests from Alameda and beyond. Be sure to add a visit to this special theater to your To Do list and enjoy a good time! —Betsy Fedewa
