The Miracle Theatre is the oldest movie theater in the city. It’s more than 100 years old. This historic, single-screen theater has that old-school look and feel that you can only find in the movies.

The Miracle Theatre is a second-run theater that shows movies on most weekends. They also host concerts, storytelling shows, and private events. I’ve performed theater twice when they hosted the Moth Storytelling events. I would go to the Moth at the Miracle Theatre even if I wasn’t performing.

They show a mix of films that have just recently left mainstream theaters as well as older classics. They also host concerts and storytelling events on a semi-regular basis. Ticket prices vary depending on the event. Movies are $6.00 while concerts and other events can cost anywhere between $5.00 – $50.00.

If I’m trying to make more of an evening of it and want to have multiple things to do in and around the same location, I can also take advantage of the theater’s Dinner & Movie deal. They have a partnership with three eateries on the same block that will give you a discount on concessions at the theater or 10% off of your food or drink bill at the restaurants.
