About Kennedy School Theater

Feature films with a slice and a brew...

Comfy old sofas, armchairs and tables for two make for memorable movie-going experiences at Kennedy School. And we're not talking about science class documentaries, either. Nowadays, this former school auditorium is home to nightly showings of second-run feature films and more.

The auditorium features murals representing the remarkable history of Kennedy School and its surrounding neighborhood. Ample space allows up to 300 fans of the silver screen to take in a flick — made all the more enjoyable with the addition of our handcrafted ales, wines and spirits along with pub fare, delivered to you during the show from the adjacent Theater Bar.

Whether visiting Kennedy School Theater to enjoy the movies you missed at the big cinema multiplex or taking in a movie as part of an overnight stay, you're bound to have a different experience at the Kennedy School than at just about any other movie theater around.

Accommodations Closed Captioning 

Our theater offers a quality entertainment experience for deaf, hard of hearing and vision impaired guests. Our movie showings are closed captioned, and we offer individual Captiview closed caption devices. In addition, we offer two types of headphones: hearing impaired headphones that amplify the dialogue, or visual impaired headphones that describe the scenery and action. Just inquire before showtime to use any of these devices. Our theater is wheelchair accessible. Please inquire if you need assistance.

Menus

As the lounge and lobby of Kennedy School's movie theater, the Theater Bar (set in a former classroom) is an inviting location for a quick drink before the show or slices of pizza at a table for two.

We serve everything from pizzas to burgers to popcorn and candy. Orders are delivered to your table during the show so you don't miss the movie.
