Enjoy A Movie at the Pioneer Theatre

If your Outer Banks getaway has you spending time near Manteo and you happen to have a heart for historical theaters and cinema alike, catching a movie at the Pioneer Theatre might just be the highlight of your stay! Located at 113 Budleigh Street, the Pioneer Theatre is a historic stop in a town that dates back to 1918. While the original building was lost in a fire, the current architecture was put in place in 1934 and to this day, continues to welcome movie-goers each week. Upon arrival, it’s easy to be enamored with the English Tudor-style architecture waiting to greet you. The Pioneer Theatre is now a family-owned and operated establishment that has proudly earned the title of the oldest family-operated theater in the nation! The theater prides itself on showing family-friendly flicks so everyone can enjoy the movie-going experience in a comfortable and welcoming style.

Stepping inside the Pioneer Theatre is a bit like stepping back in time to the hay day of movie-going at its finest. That includes the prices! Tickets to see a film here are $7 a person and concessions are only $2 each. The concept is to make movies extremely accessible, and guests are often thrilled to find they can order up all of their favorite movie foods from popcorn and soda to a variety of candies. You’ll want to keep your eye on the movie calendar at Pioneer Theater as this destination shows one first-run movie a week starting at 8:00 pm. While the surroundings here speak to a time gone by in movie history, the owners have invested in state-of-the-art digital equipment to make the entertainment top-tier with every show. A recent remodel project gives guests a chance to appreciate some upgrades to the space in the way of details like cozier seating and new drapes too! If you don’t have a chance to check the movie lineup online, be sure to keep your eyes on the Highway 64 billboard which announces the latest flick each week.
