The Casino Theatre is open year round. We show movies nightly at 7:30 pm. We are currently working on a small restoration project in the theatre, but the theatre is still open. We will occasionally close the theatre for a special event.
Movies are posted one to two weeks in advance of showing. There is a new movie every Friday. We typically show films that have been out for a few weeks.
