Meet The Theaters

These unique theaters in Napa, Yountville, St. Helena, and Calistoga showcase our films and provide the forum for post-screening Q&As with attending filmmakers. From turn-of-the-century art house theaters, to state-of-the-art facilities, our theaters provide memorable movie watching environments. Keep an eye on the Intimacy Rating: the more stars, the smaller and more intimate the venue. If you see three or more stars (✪), these are venues that tend to fill quickly so plan accordingly!
