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. The historic building alone is a worth a stop!
The Raymond Theatre is on the register of National Historical Buildings. The 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.
Today, the elegant building is completely restored and improved, boasting a Dobly sound system, a wide screen, comfortable seating and tasty concessions. It seats 347 people, and is a wonderful venue location for live concerts and cultural programs. It is used by non-profit groups for fund raising events, educational programming incentive programs for youth, ballet and school performances. Movies are occasionally still shown in addition to being held for meetings, weddings and birthday parties!
