The World Theatre is a nonprofit, volunteer-run theatre. Our goal is to bring you a better alternative to commercial Hollywood fare by celebrating the motion picture as art. The World marks a revival in the lost art of showmanship. That means you get all the modern bells and whistles of a state-of-the-art theatre along with the style of a legendary movie palace. The experience is one-of-a-kind, there’s no calculated extortion between the ticket booth and your seat, and we feature movies for all audiences. Simply put, movies are fun again. Check us out. It's worth five bucks.

From Audrey Hepburn’s captivating Area 51-sized eyes, to Clark Gable’s perfect hair part, you couldn’t see the stars from here without support from the community.
