The Bob Hope Theater


The Bob Hope Theater shows movies five nights a week, Wednesday through Sunday, and matinees on Saturday and Sunday. The films are current and often are still showing at local, off-base theaters. They are presented on a giant 20′ by 40′ screen in 21-speaker 7.1 Surround Sound using the latest digital projection techniques including “3D”. The concession stand offers a full range of snacks and drinks including beer and wine. The snack bar closes 45 minutes after the start of the last show.  With the exception of baby food and water, only food and drinks purchased in the theater may be consumed in the theater. Theater rentals may be made by authorized patrons for functions like plays, dance recitals, awards, ceremonies, etc. Call 4099/4119 for information.

The Bob Hope Theater is open to all authorized patrons and their guests. An authorized patron is an active duty, reserve or retired military person, their authorized dependents and DOD employees. Authorized patrons allowed to bring guests and are responsible for them.

Headphones are now available for checkout. See the theater manager for more information.

This means the lights will not be turned off, the sound will be lowered from the usual levels and there’s open caption on the screen for the hearing impaired.

Outside food and beverages are not permitted; sales from the Snack Bar support the Movie Program.

There is no additional charge for “3D” movies. However, you must bring your own “3D” glasses or purchase them from us to view the movie in “3D”. “3D” glasses only cost $1.00 from us and are available in two sizes, adult and child. You get to keep the glasses to use again.
