“Funky & fabulous”
Reviewed 9 July 2014

This theater takes you back to when you were a kid and there were still balcony seats and a single free standing ticket booth. It is so cool inside - day glow underwater scenes on the walls and old time sconces on the walls. Clean and fresh inside with nicely upholstered seats and pleasant people working the snack bar. I always make a point of it to try to go to this theater instead of a big box theater whenever I can. A little slice of yesteryear.

Lido Theater is a nice vintage, small town theatre but there is nothing else to do aronud there. The village other than Lido Book Store (which is wonderful!!!!) is a dead zone all boat charter places, no palce to eat or shop.

“Step Back In Time”
Reviewed 21 May 2014

Love this little retro theatre. It shows first rate films and is part of the Newport Beach Film Festival! It's like going to another era when movie houses were truly grand, personal & timeless.

“See movie like you are at home.”
Reviewed 15 March 2014

The huge reclining leather chair is a great plus and you can have wine served while watching the movies. It's worth the extra dollars.
