PRE-ORDER ONLINE anytime up until 3pm the FRIDAY you want to pickup. PICK UP BETWEEN 5pm-6pm on the Friday you’ve selected right at the Wilmette Theatre. FOR $10, you’ll get a yummy big ziplock of fresh movie popcorn! Equals two large size popcorn bags combined. It stays fresh in the re-sealable bag.


Deliciously easy! So get your order in ‘cause supplies are limited. This is too good to miss!


During this “stay at home” time we want to offer you the opportunity to view many of the independent films that would ordinarily be showing at the Wilmette Theatre.  Distributors are providing virtual screenings where the Wilmette Theatre receives a portion of the income, to help support the Theatre until we are able to reopen.

We are booking a wider range of movies than we would ordinarily show in the Theatre, so we encourage you to carefully read the movie description, reviews and view the trailers before making your selection.  Rotten Tomatoes is an excellent source for information.  You can see their ratings and click on the various reviews for detailed discussion and evaluation of the movie.  https://www.rottentomatoes.com/

We welcome your feedback and suggestions for viewing options.  Stay healthy during this difficult time.  We hope to see you back at the Theatre once it is safe.  We miss all of you!

Preserving the health and safety of patrons in light of COVID-19 is the top priority for the Wilmette Theatre. So we want to reach out to all of you to let you know what is happening here at the theater. We are monitoring the daily updates from the village of Wilmette, city of Chicago, the state of Illinois and the CDC, and acting in accordance with evolving best practices and recommendations.  This page will be updated as soon as we have any update.  In the meantime feel free to reach out via the contact section below as we will be monitoring our email.   We hope that all of our patrons stay safe and healthy!  And appreciate your understanding.

Any and all contributions would be greatly appreciated to help us through these challenging times.




The valuable support of North Shore Community Bank & Trust Company make it possible for us to show interesting and unique films to our patrons. We really can’t thank North Shore Community Bank & Trust Company enough!
