Perhaps best known as the location of the 1990s cult classic Twin Peaks, the town of North Bend, Washington, has a rich theater history. On its opening night of April 9, 1941, the North Bend Theatre showed the Academy Award-nominated film “Tall, Dark, and Handsome.” Since then, and despite having changed ownership on a few occasions, the independent movie theater has kept the residents of North Bend entertained for more than 80 years. In 1999, the theater was bought by the Slover family, who conserved its Art Moderne style while overhauling the building. In 2006, it was acquired by the Walker family, who established the annual North Bend Mountain Film Festival, featuring films produced by big name companies like Teton Gravity Research and previously screened at major outdoor festivals such as the 5-Point Film Festival and the Banff Mountain Film Festival. In addition, the Walker family ushered the theater into the digital era to ensure they could continue providing the community with new blockbuster hits. In 2018, the Burrows family bought the theatre and has promised to make necessary improvements to preserve it for generations to come.
