Riverview Theater Admission Prices

Prices are subject to change and we recommend checking the theater’s website. However, we love the this theater, because they have really held steady with affordable pricing over the years. Concessions are also quite affordable.

Riverview admission had held steady at $2.50 for everyone for quite some time.  However, When the theatre re-opened for in person films in May of 2021, they announced:

Because of the pandemic, Hollywood either shortened the amount of time movies may be shown exclusively in theaters, or sent films directly to streaming services. Although we would have preferred to resume showing a variety of second-run movies as we have done in the past, this is not feasible right now because of these drastic changes made by film distributors. Instead, we will be shifting our movie schedule to first-run, or newly released films. To accomplish this, we are required to increase our ticket price and limit the number of films we play each week. We hope to return to scheduling films as we have done in the past, depending on when Hollywood finds its new normal.

Prices are currently $7.00 for adult evening admission; and $5 for children, seniors and all matinees.

Riverview also offers some pretty cool special screenings, although these may more often fall more in the date night category and prices may be higher for these events.
