Welcome to the Concrete Theatre
& Act One Ice Cream Parlor

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, unexpected intermission in 2020-2021, 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 premium ice cream from Wisconsin, fresh-baked waffle cones, sundaes, Italian sodas, milkshakes, and some incredible espresso beverages.

Act One Ice Cream Parlor is open Thursday through Sunday from Noon to 7:00 p.m. 

Stop by and try our new holiday flavors of super-rich ice cream: PUMPKIN PIE, PEPPERMINT STICK AND CINNAMON!

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, we’re requiring proof of vaccination to attend 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 pertains to audiences in the Concrete Theatre’s Main Auditorium.  Please know we did not make this decision lightly. We took into account the community transmission of the virus, followed the lead of other movie theaters, and carefully considered feedback from our regular customers. We appreciate all of you who’ve reached out with your support and understanding. 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. Read more: FAQs Concrete Theatre
