As a result of low attendance, The Hot Springs Theatre has changed its operating hours.
As of October 2, 2020, the theatre will be open Friday and Saturday evenings only.
Movie start time will be 7:00PM each night. We appreciate your patience and understanding during these unusual times.
As always, concessions are available to non-ticket holders and we open at 5:30 on Friday to give you the opportunity to grab your goodies on your way home. You can find a full list of admission and concession prices here and by clicking on our Facebook cover page.
Although new movies are not available, we continue to show some of the best movies from years past, timeless classics meant to be scene on big screens. We invite you discover the difference in a film when experienced on the sort of screen for which it was filmed!
Dear Hot Springs Movie (and Popcorn) lovers,
Thank you for supporting your hometown theatre in these strange times. Whether you came to the movie on ‘re-opening’ weekend, or bought treats at the concession stands while we were closed, your participation has meant the world to us. We know you love the theatre, and we love the way the community has embraced movies on the big screen in Hot Springs.
NOTE: While we are showing classic movies, we will only show trailers among the ads we play before show time. PLAN TO HAVE YOUR CONCESSIONS AND BE IN YOUR SEATS BY SHOW TIME: 7:00 P.M., as the feature movie will start immediately!
We want to remind you that concessions are always available when we are open, whether you buy a ticket or not. On Fridays, we open the concession stand an hour early at 5:30. Otherwise, concessions are available 30 minutes before showtime up to 30 minutes before the movie is over. For distancing concerns, you may come in (we limit the number of people in the lobby at one time) and order or you may come to the door, request curbside service, and go back to your car to wait for us to prepare and deliver your order. You may also bring your own covered container, which further limits physical contact and makes it so much easier to bring your popcorn home! (We will pour your popcorn from the regular container into your personal container.)
As the studios continue to delay new movies, we are showing some classics, movies you have likely seen on television, but probably not on the big screen, or not for many years on the big screen. (These movies are not equipped for our adaptive equipment, so sadly we cannot offer audio/visual assistance for now—we do have those handy footstools. Let's call them short leg adaptive equipment!)
We understand that many of you are not ready to return to social outings, so we don’t expect to turn away customers. We are requiring wide social distancing and our customers comply without complaint. Since our auditorium is huge, we have no worries about finding everyone a safely distanced seat.
Again, we are grateful for your support and cooperation as we navigate this strange new territory.
The Staff and Management at the Hot Springs Theatre
The historic Hot Springs Theatre re-opened on April 7, 2017, with showings every weekend on Friday, Saturday & Sunday evenings at 7:00 and on Saturday & Sunday at 2:00.
We are a cash-only establishment.
The employees of the City of Hot Springs wanted to do something special for the Hot Springs Theatre. On personal time, they recreated this Santa display, relying for inspiration on photos of the original.
Welcome to the HST Blog. We can't say for sure what sort of posts will appear here, but right now we are pretty excited about Anna's chair restoration project. We are hoping to here from more of the folks who took chairs from the main floor or the balcony as they use them in creative ways.
