Best Movie Theater

Wilma Theatre

Readers' Pick

We suspect the fact that the Wilma serves beer has inspired at least a few of our readers to vote the historic theater a favorite for several years running. But if locally brewed ale isn’t enough to lure you away from Netflix and Hulu, the historic Wilma-constructed in 1921-may be worth the price of admission alone. The theater gives modern-day movie buffs a glimpse into another era, one in which teenagers flocked to the balcony to watch black and white films from cushioned red chairs under the largest hand-painted ceiling in the state. That vintage feel-thoughtfully maintained during recent renovations-continues to make the Wilma the cherished grand dame of Missoula’s ever-changing downtown. Wilma Theatre: 131 S.
