As a public health precaution due to COVID-19 (coronavirus), all Smithsonian museums in the Washington, D.C., metropolitan area and New York City, including the National Zoo, will temporarily close to the public starting Saturday, March 14. We are not announcing a re-opening date at this time and will provide updates on social media and our websites.
The National Museum of American History is committed to exploring the legacy of American cinema as well as how film culture shapes how we perceive ourselves as Americans. This theater allows Smithsonian Theaters to provide visitors with new and exciting opportunities to explore the art of film in a stunning and intimate 261-seat jewel box venue. This theater hosts a full roster of public programs, from new and repertory film screenings, lectures, and concerts, to expansive film festivals. The Warner Bros. Theater provides our most intimate and personal experience to date among our theater venues, and offers state-of-the-art digital 2D & 3D and 35mm film presentations.
