About Us

The Bay Theatre has been family owned and operated since 1975. The building was constructed in the early 1940's as a single screen motion picture theatre. The Jannopoulos family has maintained the historical integrity and charm of the building while pursuing their efforts to maintain and improve the physical and technical aspects of this landmark.

The most recent improvement has been the installation of a state of the art digital projection and sound system. We are proud to be the beneficiaries of Ultra Stereo of San Luis Obispo's generosity, who donated to us, a digital sound processor and an assisted listening system, which includes not only sound amplification but also, closed captioning and visual narration capabilities.

Our family invites you and your family to enjoy your next night out at the movies, with us, at the Bay Theatre in beautiful downtown Morro Bay, California
