MWR movie theaters are open to all active duty, reservists, retirees, dependents, DoD civilians, contractors and their sponsored guests. Our theater seats 308 comfortably and features surround-sound, digital projection, a snack bar and FREE admission. Come one, come all... just come hungry! That's how we keep our movies free.

Parents, please carefully consider the content of a movie before bringing your children. R-rated movies contain adult material and are not suitable for young children. All children must be accompanied by an adult at all times.

Digital and 3D Projection

We're excited to announce that the NAF Theater has gone digital! With this new digital upgrade we will have clearer picture and 3D capabilities. Patrons will need to buy 3D glasses to view the 3D movies or you can bring your own. Glasses are available at the theater for $1 each and you will be allowed to keep them. Theater admission will continue to be FREE!
