The covered garage at Lake View Village Shopping Center (355 1st St) is free to the public and provides ample parking for area businesses. It’s never full and is only a 3-minute walk to the theater from here.
Another public lot is at the corner of Foothills Road and Highway 43, it’s a minute closer but has fewer spaces available.
Finally, limited parking is available in the two-level garage next door at Lakeside Plaza (8 N State St) after 5:00pm on weekdays and all day on Saturdays and Sundays.
There is a loading zone directly in front of the theater. Drop off your loved ones before you park and score bonus points* for your chivalry!

Designed by celebrated local architect Richard Sundeleaf, the Lake Theatre first opened its doors in 1940, charging 25¢ for admission and screening Another Thin Man. Its neighbors were Ireland’s On The Lake restaurant, Clever Cleaners, and The Theatre Ice Cream store, and was for the initial decades of its life the entertainment hub of downtown Lake Oswego. Eventually, however, it fell into disrepair, better known for its sticky floors and crummy seats than for its art. 1996 brought the Willamette Valley flood, and with it, the seeming destruction of the theater: the auditoriums submerged for days on end in several feet of water and dirt, wrecking the electrical and the seats, and the theater’s then-owner without the means to repair them, the space was rendered into total ruination.
Drew Prell rescued the theater in 1997, giving it a much-needed facelift and restoration while maintaining its quaint charm and nostalgic air. The theater was retitled Lake Twin Cinema, and attendance thrived for a time, but the dual rise of the megaplex and the arthouse cinema provided increasingly difficult competition. Some films drew crowds, most did not. The theater maintained a loyal customer base, but the future did not look sustainable. Change was needed.
After a year of extensive renovations and additions, the reimagined Lake Theater & Cafe emerged in April 2014. Boasting a full kitchen and bar serving beer, wine, and liquor, it is no longer about just going to the movies. Our menu is straightforward—pizza, sandwiches, soups—but emphasizes fresh ingredients and skillful preparation. The lobby and outdoor deck have been transformed to accommodate casual dining and easy socialization. The first auditorium is dedicated to cinema, updated with state-of-the-art digital projection, stadium seating, spacious reclining chairs, and room for food and drink. The second auditorium, now with direct lakeside access, is for anything and everything. With adjustable seating, customizable amenities, a dance floor and a stage, it is host to live music, sports broadcasts, trivia, or even your own private event.
