They were extremely gracious about letting me use my expired Groupon and the staff went many extra miles by letting me bring a second person in on that Groupon. They even gave me a free bag of popcorn!!! That's GREAT customer service!!!

I'd not heard of the Crest Theater prior to the coupon. We had a great time and would definitely go again. We were surprised to see Straight No Chaser coming there in a few days (one of our favorites) and will not monitor the Crest Theater for upsoming events.

What You'll Get

Filmmaker Jean-Luc Godard once said, "The cinema is truth at 24 frames per second," making slo-mo sports replays and sped-up Benny Hill gags nothing but cruel, cruel lies. Get the real deal with today's Groupon: for $9, you get one movie ticket, one large popcorn, and one large drink (an $18.50 value) at the Crest Theatre.

A vivid neon sign and vintage marquee welcome guests to the Crest Theatre, a gorgeous cinema built in 1949 that still evokes that era. Today, the treasured reelhouse projects the finest in foreign, independent, and art films, perfect for stocking up on film-studies trivia and necking during intermission. Sop up high culture from your spot in the stadium-seating auditorium with ornate gold and red curtains and majestic purple walls. You can scope out the calendar to spy your preferred film and ensure a timely monocle dusting. On July 2, The Crest will premiere Luca Guadagnino's I Am Love, starring Tilda Swinton, an Italian film about a wealthy family's shifting structure. Today's Groupon allows you to couple your viewing with a large popcorn (a $5.25 value) and large soda (a $3.75 value). A spacious seating area ensures you'll rarely have to worry about saving a spot, and free parking is available nearby at 10th and L streets.


The Crest Theatre gets an average of 4.5 stars from more than 80 Yelpers:

  • This is the most gorgeous movie theater I've ever been to. It's huge. They play great movies. Is it reasonable to drive here from Berkeley just to see a movie? Because I would... – Erika H.
  • The theater is very gorgeous, beautiful, and spacious… It has all the charm you'd expect from a classic theater. – Chris N.
  • I'm going to make a movie about the Crest, then show it at the Crest. Preserved, beautiful, unique, and one of those places that has stood the test of time. For some reason, coming here makes you feel good inside. – Madalyn F.

About Crest Theatre

"Ornate" and "sweeping" only begin to describe the Crest Theatre, whose rich history extends back to 1912, when it was opened as a vaudeville house. Within its gargantuan auditorium, plush seats perch in subtly curved rows while elaborate lights and a sea-blue ceiling wash the space in ethereal hues. Moviegoers settle into the elegant confines to take in both new and classic films, reading the subtitles in a whisper to stuffed animals that forgot their glasses. Out in the lobby, a richly patterned carpet and bronzed floral motif cover the sprawling space as visitors belly up to the bar and snack on high-quality goodies.
