A movie theater is a venue, usually a building, where movies are shown on a large screen.
On the evening of August 25, 1931, Arthur McFly went to the Town Theater to watch a showing of Frankenstein. A young Emmett Brown later went to the theater to watch the same film, which further inspired him in his career in science.
In an alternate timeline where Emmett Brown married Edna Strickland, Edna and Emmett watched The Virtuous Husband at the Town Theater instead of Frankenstein. On October 12, 1931, Frankenstein was still playing at the Town Theater. Citizen Brown, Emmett Brown's counterpart from the alternate timeline, watched the film three times that day.
On November 6, 1960, in the timeline where an elderly Biff Tannen used the DeLorean time machine to make his younger self a millionaire, Tannen Pictures premiered the film Dreams of a Madman at a movie theater in Hollywood, California.
In 1971, in the alternate timeline where Emmett and Edna Brown controlled Hill Valley, Edna ordered that the Town Theater be torn down as she felt movies corrupted the younger generation.
By 1985, the Town Theater had become the gathering place for the Assembly of Christ church, while the Essex Theater had become an X-rated movie house. During this period, movies were shown at the Hill Valley Theatre.
On September 7, 1893, Dr. Emmett Brown traveled in the second DeLorean time machine to October 27, 2017 to find an eighth wedding anniversary gift for his wife Clara; he eventually bought a copy of Lighthouse at the End of the World by Clara's favorite author, Jules Verne, from the Blast from the Past antique/memorabilia store. While in 2017 Hill Valley, Doc passed the Holomax Theater where the movie remake of A Match Made in Space was being shown. The exterior of the building created a giant holographic image of the alien which appeared to reach down to grab Doc, during which he remembered that although the original movie hadn't been great, "the book was really something special".
