Charm, charm, charm. From the moment you enter, you know you are in a special place. While we really enjoyed the movie (The Martian) we will never forget the theatre and it's lovely atmosphere.

One of my favorite movie houses by far. Always worth a visit, even to see something one has seen before.

Great place to get in out of the heat and enjoy a first rate movie. Great popcorn and good snack variety. Only down side would be the "small" chairs so larger folks may find the seating less than comfortable

This one room theater will take you back in time. Friendly service, fair prices and good selection on concessions. Water is only $0.50. Whole place is very clean including the bathrooms. We now have a new tradition!

We simmer in Leland and going to the Bay Theatre is always in our to do list. It may just be my husband and I in a night out. Me and my sisters. Or the whole family. Great Carmel corn and cherry pop

This is a first quality theater. 1st run films in a 225 seat house is a very intimate experience. They also have a "Bay Film Series" of indie films from all over the world!

It is a nice old theater and well maintained. Considering all the new cinemas out and around it is nice to visit the "older style" theater. I wish they had better popcorn, but other than that it is a nice place to see a flick.

The Bay Theatre, located in downtown Suttons Bay, MI, provides a wonderful movie experience. Every time I go "Up North," I always try to catch a movie at the Bay.
