About New Richmond 8 Theatre

The City of New Richmond lost their movie entertainment in the 1980's with the closing of the old GEM Theatre and had to travel more than 20 miles in order to see a current movie.

In 1995, then City Mayor Billy Smith wrote an opinion column in the local newspaper expressing his desire to see another movie theatre in the City and described the various benefits New Richmond residents would receive. So we began our building process and with much study and planning, we built our then small theatre. despite the bad weather conditions at the time.

More than a year later, our theatre opened its doors as New Richmond 4 on December 14, 1996. With four auditoriums to seat 474 people, we offered DTS digital sound, a complete concession stand, spacious lobby, and gave the residents of New Richmond a new local theatre.

In 1998, we added two larger auditoriums and became New Richmond 6. Our expansion created 400 more seats, along with curved screens, Dolby digital surround sound, expanded parking and new restrooms to serve the growing New Richmond area.

In 2005, we again expanded our theatre adding two more auditoriums that include stadium seating for 343 patrons, a larger concession area, even more parking space and a new party room for birthday parties and other celebrations.

Now known as New Richmond 8 Theatre, we continue to offer the latest first run movie titles for the community and have a wide range of special services to suit your needs. We offer theatre rentals, gift cards, VIP tickets for businesses and pride ourselves on maintaining the best customer service with our personable and professional staff.

Our goal at the New Richmond 8 Theatre is to serve the community in the best way possible and we welcome suggestions or ideas in order to better accomplish our goals. Your feedback is always welcomed.
