Welcome to the Raymond Theatre!

"Movie theaters still exist in spite of all of the alternatives that are available, video and video-on-demand and DVD and streaming video and all of these things." ―Leonard Maltin

A Community Venue

“We cannot seek achievement for ourselves and forget about progress and prosperity for our community... Our ambitions must be broad enough to include the aspirations and needs of others, for their sakes and for our own.” ―Cesar Chavez

Your seat...your adventure...awaits.

“Movies will make you famous; Television will make you rich; But theatre will make you good.” ―Terrence Mann

All the world's a stage...

“All the world's a stage, And all the men and women merely players; They have their exits and their entrances, And one man in his time plays many parts" ―William Shakespeare, As You Like It

"Wait a minute, wait a minute, you ain't heard nothin' yet! Wait a minute, I tell ya! You ain't heard nothin'! You wanna hear "Toot, Toot, Tootsie"? All right, hold on, hold on..." ―Jack Robin

Raymond Theatre: An Historic Venue

Conveniently located in downtown Raymond, Washington, at the mouth of the Willapa River. Whether you’re in Pacific County or Grays Harbor County along the Cranberry Coast, it’s worth the short, scenic drive to Raymond to take in a movie, enjoy live music or see local theatrical production. Most days there’s something exciting happening here, but the building alone is a worth a stop.

The Raymond Theatre opened in 1928, with a showing of the silent movie The Jazz Singer. In fact, you can still catch a silent movie here today, along with an assortment of first-run films. The elegant building is completely restored and improved, boasting a Dobly sound system, a wide screen, comfortable seating and tasty concessions.
