Oakland's Oldest Movie Theatre


The Piedmont Cinema opened it's doors in 1917 and is the oldest operating movie theatre in the city of Oakland. Now with Piedmont Ave's thriving restaurant scene you should take date night,(or girls night out) to the Avenue.

Be sure to drop by on a Saturday night when prizes from local merchants and film-related memorabilia are given away before each screening.

Tonight at midnight they are playing Scarface, click here for movies and showtimes.
