To our loyal patrons/friends,

As Washington state continues taking measures towards containing the covid-19 virus, new regulations mean Central Cinema’s screen is going dark for now. Our lobby cafe is also not offering seating during this time.

As of today, Monday March 16, we have canceled all future screenings and events. All pre-purchased tickets have been refunded. We hope to reschedule many of the upcoming titles for when our screen once again shines bright.

Believe us when we tell you we will genuinely miss all of you during these times. All of us here at Central Cinema truly love providing Seattle with awesome cinematic experiences and cool one-of-a-kind events. The loss of revenue will hurt, but not as much as missing out on sharing cult favorites and crowd-pleasers with all of you.


Many of you have offered to help with our sudden financial turmoil by picking up some gift cards. This is such a nice gesture, Thank You! We will be paying you back with Shows, Drinks, and Food on the other side of this. If you would like to contribute this way the gift card page is

Stay safe and healthy. We look forward to seeing you as soon as the time is right.
