Cold, but the theater provided a blanket. One show in the afternoon @ 2 and then an evening show. The popcorn was GREAT!

My family has been spending Thanksgiving in Idyllwild for as long as I can remember.

Every year we spend one afternoon watching at movie at the Rustic Theater. The Rustic Theater is a bit of a historical monument in Idyllwild- as it has been around for a long time. But my how charming it is.

Upon entering you are welcomed into a cozy main room. DVDs on the wall, where you can rent videos, and a comfy couch you can take a seat on and watch a movie. Behind you is a small concession stand where they sell the usual theater refreshments.

Two large doors on each side take you into the theater. It is usually cold in there, but the blankets on the seats make it cozy.

Being a native of Los Angeles, and being used to the usual mass theaters, its time to come up to Idyllwild and share this experience.

This is definitely a small-town theater! They show one movie for an entire week before switching to another one. The screen is big but not huge; the theater is very cold during the winter months. Chairs are very, VERY old and not particularly comfortable, but OK. The staff is very friendly.

this theater plays first run movies! there is only one movie playing and it plays either 1 or 2 weeks and then on with another first run movie. there are blankets for the patrons if it is too chilly. old building so you feel like your watching a movie in a theater from the old wild west.

We have been full time residents for over 10 years and have seen many improvements at the Rustic. They have recently upadated their sound system and boosted the heat in winter. They are host to a fantastic International Cinema festival every January which features 5 days of films. There fee for entrance beats all neighboring communitites.
