OUR SENSORY FRIENDLY SERIES WILL RETURN IN THE FUTURE!

Everyone deserves the chance to enjoy an experience at the movie theater, but we understand that certain sensitivities can make this challenging. B&B Theatres, however, is committed to creating environments where cinema lovers of all types can watch a movie in comfort and without fear of judgment or rebuke.

Variety: the Children's Charity

B&B Theatres is proud to operate facilities in wonderful and caring communities across eight states.  To show our commitment to these towns and in an effort to give back, B&B Theatres has developed a series of yearlong drives, promotions, and fundraising efforts to benefit Variety: the Children’s Charity, one of the world’s most compassionate and innovative charitable organizations dedicated to improving the lives of disadvantaged children.  While Variety is an international organization, every dollar raised by B&B Theatres and then contributed to Variety remains in B&B towns, providing services to families and children in need in the communities in which the company operates facilities. 

B&B Theatres has donated and/or raised tens of thousands of dollars annually for Variety, and the charity has enriched communities, strengthened families, and changed lives.  We are grateful to be involved in their outstanding service and proud to call them our exclusive corporate charity.

THEATEREARS ALLOWS YOU TO LISTEN TO MOVIES AT THE MOVIE THEATER IN SPANISH WITH YOUR SMARTPHONE AND EARBUDS - ALL IN REAL TIME

The TheaterEars app utilizes a new type of technology that enables you to sync to a movie directly through your phone's microphone.  Once the connection is made, audio plays directly through your earbuds in Spanish.
