Elevate Your Movie-Going Experience at Cinebarre

Enjoy the latest blockbuster movie on a big screen—with a frosty beer in hand!—at Cinebarre, a 21+ theater in Issaquah. Seats are roomy with plenty of leg room, but unfortunately this theater doesn't take reservations. The key to enjoying your experience is arriving early—very early, in fact. The theaters can be small, so grab your spot as soon as possible.

There is a nice selection of draft beer, so you can enjoy a few in the bar before the show. Order your food promptly, and get your own drinks from the bar to ensure speedy service. The simple menu includes fried food, pizzas, and burgers. If you don’t want to fuss over a full meal, just order dessert.

Happy hour is 3:30 p.m. to 6:30 p.m. weekdays, with premium drafts for just $4, along with other food and drink specials.

Annette Lake Trail

The trail is primarily used for hiking & mountain biking and is accessible from June until November. Dogs are also able to use this trail. Annette Lake trail is rated the 7th best trail out of 292 trails in the Snoqualmie National Forest.

Village Theatre: Small Town Theatre, Big City Productions

Enjoy an evening of live theatre at the Village Theatre in Issaquah. This local theatre surprises many with its excellent productions. In fact, many theatre-goers compare performances here to ones seen on Broadway in terms of high quality sound, lighting, sets, and acting.

Most of the main stage productions are musicals, including one original every year. Over 125 Village Originals have gotten their start here, and a handful have even made it to New York. If you have a young child interested in acting, they have several camps and classes throughout the year.

Although there is a concession stand open before and during intermission, you can’t take snacks into the theatre. The theatre is conveniently located with easy access to I-90, and there is plenty of parking in public lots. Allow yourself extra time to account for traffic along Front Street, and if you have a few moments before showtime, take a stroll and window-shop at local business.
