Welcome to the Concrete Theatre and Act One Ice Cream Parlor

In case you haven’t visited us in person before, here’s a quick overview:
The historic Concrete Theatre was built in 1923 and is the oldest movie theatre in Skagit County. Since 2009, it’s been owned by Valerie Stafford and Fred West and except for that long intermission in 2020, we’ve been showing movies and hosting events regularly since 2010.

Act One Ice Cream Parlor opened in June 2021, after we purchased the building next door to the Theatre and combined them to create an “event center,” where you can meet and mingle with your friends and family while enjoying top-notch entertainment and some world-class treats! We feature 20 flavors of premium ice cream, fresh-baked waffle cones and some incredible espresso beverages.

AUTUMN HOURS: Beginning October 7, 2021, Act One Ice Cream Parlor is open Thursday through Monday from 10:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m. We’ll be open later on movie nights, typically Friday, Saturday and Sunday.

The Theatre and Ice Cream Parlor are located in Town Center, Concrete. Follow State Route 20 to our town, then drive just one block off the highway to explore our historic Town Center!


For everyone’s safety, beginning Friday, September 24, 2021, we’ll be requiring proof of vaccination before watching a movie at the Concrete Theatre. Movie-goers will also need to wear a mask except when eating or drinking. As proof of vaccination, please show your vaccination card or a digital copy on your mobile device. This change only relates to audiences in the Main Auditorium, not customers at Act One Ice Cream Parlor or groups meeting in Cinema Two. In those spaces, where the length of your visit is much shorter, you’re only required to wear a mask, as mandated by the state of Washington. The best way to get up-to-date information on our movies, events and ice cream parlor, is to sign up for our email updates.


Please know we did not make this decision lightly. We took into account the community transmission of the Delta Variant, followed in the footsteps of other venues, and carefully considered feedback from our regular customers. Hopefully, this is a temporary requirement; we will be reassessing the risk level of movie-going in October and November 2021. We appreciate all of you who’ve reached out with your support and understanding.
