Ark Lodge Cinemas

4816 Rainier Ave S, Seattle, WA 98118

Housed in a beautiful historic building in the heart of Seattle's Columbia City neighborhood, Ark Lodge Cinemas retains the vintage charm of an old-time movie theater while screening the first-run feature films at the top of everyone's must-see list. We project a variety of films, including family-friendly animation, action-packed blockbusters, and high-brow arthouse films on four screens, seven days a week.

Festival events and screenings to be held here from May 12 to 21.
