Two Ways To Watch Movies at the Brooklyn Opera House

Attend one of our regularly scheduled movies. Tickets may be purchased in advance at Remaining seats will be available on a first come first served basis at the ticket window. With the Governor’s new proclamation, we will be limiting our ticket sales to 15 people per show at least until December 10th. If our showings continue to book up, we will open up additional showtimes.

Want the theater to yourself? We can do that! Reserve the theater for your own private movie viewing. Select from the movie we are showing that day or bring your own. Please see below for details on a private movie showings.
