Do you love the Crest?

We love the Crest Cinema and we love movies - simple as that. My husband Oscar and I have been going to the Crest so much over the years that we often joked about a "Crestie Club" where folks could discuss movies they saw at the Crest. Well, the time has come! In order to move forward with this club we'd like you to fill out this short survey. It will provide insight for meeting location, frequency, genre, etc. You don't have to live in Ridgecrest Neighborhood - you just have to love movies and the Crest!

History of the Crest 

The Crest was built in 1949. Equipped with widescreen capabilities in 1979, it was one of the first theaters in the country to run “Close Encounters of the Third Kind” in 70mm.

It was expanded to four auditoriums in 1980: two houses were configured with stadium-style seats and high-backed chairs, and two larger houses were constructed to feature conventional seating and large screens.

The theater offered bargain nights in the late 1980s, and they became so successful that the owners decided to keep running “discount programming”.

Tickets are $3. It’s very much a neighborhood theater.
