Theatre in Missoula

Film festivals, community theater, classics on the big screen, current blockbusters — you’re bound to find a theater seat with a view you like.

If you’re a fan of live theater, you’ll enjoy productions by the Missoula Children’s Theatre, Montana Repertory Theatre, and the Rocky Mountain Ballet Theatre. You’ll also find productions at the University Theater on the UM campus.

For fans of film festivals, Missoula hosts two renowned festivals each year. The historic Roxy Theater is home to the International Wildlife Film Festival. The Wilma Theater, also a historic landmark, welcomes the Big Sky Documentary Film Festival each year.

If it’s the latest blockbuster you’re wanting to catch on the big screen, Carmike Theatres has two locations in Missoula with a total of 16 screens between them.  Keep an eye on the Wilma’s movie schedule, too — you just might catch a great film in a fabulous and historic setting.

See our Missoula Theater Directory for a listing of all Missoula’s theaters.
