What makes this place special? What doesn’t! In the age of the ever present multi-plex with it’s cookie-cutter design and out of this world prices, the Palm is old school with great offerings and value. It’s a locals’ favorite.

The Palm Theatre, located at 817 Palm, San Luis Obispo, California, is an independently owned and operated movie theatre which showcases a variety of independent, foreign, arthouse, and mainstream cinema. The theatre is located in the heart of downtown San Luis Obispo, right across the street from the convenient Palm Street parking garage (first hour is free). Incidentally, the theatre and its operations are entirely solar powered!
