3 Screens, DLP Digital Projection and Sound. Operated by Landmark since 1994. The oldest operating movie theatre in the city of Oakland, the Piedmont Theatre opened its doors on September 15, 1917. From its earliest days showing silent films through the studio era (including memorable runs of Jaws and Star Wars in the 1970s) to today's eclectic mix of independent, art-house, and Hollywood fare, the Piedmont has long been a mainstay of the community.
In 2010, the Piedmont Theatre completed a remodeling, returning the vintage theatre to its original grandeur. The remodeling includes modern amenities such as leather theatre seating and upgrades in the lobby and concessions.
During your visit, be sure to stroll the friendly Piedmont Avenue neighborhood, visit the shops, and dine at one of the many fine restaurants.
