I love single screen cinemas! There are so few of them. I'm glad the Lido was restored & reopened. The remodel/restoration was beautifully done. The Art Deco details reminds me of The Casino in Catalina Island. It's so charming I wish I lived closer, I'd...More

Love this theatre! One of the few old, glamorous theaters left. On a recent trip to Newport Beach we had dinner and then stopped in at the Lido to see 'Sully'. Love the old Hollywood feel of this theater!

We went to see the theater itself not a movie-- it was beautiful and art deco style. I felt like I was in miami beach, but it was very cool to see in person. If you are going to the area I'd check it out.

Old time movie theatre, that was revamped a bit, so inside is ok. They seem to only show "artsie" movies no one wants to see. Sometimes they have showings of the newport film festival here, so that was very nice.
