Special Events



Jaws Beach Party
Friday June 23, 2017 – 6:30PMTickets Here!

At Halloween, we watch Dracula…

At Thanksgiving, we watch Planes, Trains, and Automobiles…

At Christmas, we watch It’s a Wonderful Life…

What do we watch when it is time to go to the beach…JAWS of course!

Just when you thought it was safe to go back into the theater, the Hollywood is gearing up for our annual screening of the Spielberg classic Jaws!

Join us on Friday, June 23rd for a Beach Party and remember to come dressed for one! Not a tankini person? There will be a costume contest for Best Character, Best Shark Attack Victim, and Best Beach Outfit so coming in Hooper’s bucket hat or Brody’s khaki uniform is no less in the spirit.

The screening will include a display of Jaws memorabilia and a talk-before. Similar to a “talkback” after a theater performance, our talk-before will offer facts, history, origins, and trivia on this classic summer flick. (Did you know Jaws was very nearly named “The Silence of the Deep” and “Leviathan Rising?)

Before the movie, enjoy a performance by our resident theater organist & Rhythm Sweet & Hot host Dale Abraham.

The event will be BYOB so pack up your coolers and beach towels. All the normal rules for BYOB apply so check out the details at: http://www.thehollywooddormont.org/general-information/#BYOB

Doors open at 6:30. Film starts at 7:30.

If you’re not down to party, that’s fine too! Jaws will continue as part of our regular programming through June 28th.



8th Annual Prince: Purple Rain Party
Saturday June 24, 2017 – 7:00PMTickets Here!

Friends of the Hollywood Theater, come join us on June 24th for our 8th annual Purple Rain movie party! This will be the biggest dance party of the year! Last year’s event sold out within hours, and we expect this one to be insanely busy as well. The evening will include rare Prince artwork, fun Prince-inspired concessions, merchandise for sale, and a special surprise before the movie. No true Prince fan should miss out on this event! Doors open at 7pm, movie starts at 8pm.

A young musician, tormented by an abusive situation at home, must contend with a rival singer, a burgeoning romance, and his own dissatisfied band, as his star begins to rise.
