Featured Oregon Coast Attraction: The Egyptian Theatre in Downtown, Coos Bay Oregon

Posted by TravelCoosBay on June 7, 2010

Each month, we like to feature a business or attraction that adds so much to our South Oregon Coast. When visiting our area, plan to visit the Egyptian Theatre in downtown Coos Bay, Oregon.  The Egyptian Theatre is one of those distinguised landmark sites that is recognized by anyone strolling through downtown Coos Bay. This beautiful historic building sits in the heart of downtown on S. Broadway (Hwy 101).

The theatre was originally a 1,240 seat silent movie and vaudeville house designed by Portland architect, Lee Arden Thomas. It opened it’s doors in grand fashion in 1925 and featured a dazzling $32,000 state-of-the-art Wurlitzer Theater Organ. Thanks to the restoration efforts of the community it remains to this day the largest movie house of its kind on the Oregon Coast.

Each weekend, the theatre is open to the general public and shows classic movies (movies that are 5 years or older).

Taking in a classic movies at the Egyptian Theatre is the perfect way to spend an evening with friends, family, or on a date for very reasonable rates. You can also enjoy a summertime treat at an old fashioned movie Concession Stand featuring Hot Popcorn, Cold Soda, Ice Cream and Candy.
