How come you didn't show <insert movie name>?

Dragonfly Cinema is a very small, independent movie theater that only runs movies on the weekends to keep costs down. As a result, we have virtually no clout to be able to dictate exactly which films we get each week. Because film prints are expensive to produce, studios will often not produce enough film prints so that every theater can get its own copy. If larger theaters in our area have a copy of a particular film, it's unlikely we'll be able to get a copy as well since studios want to maximize their return on every print they invest in. Consequently, we have to dance a bit with the studios, trying to pick up films at specific times. Sometimes we get trumped by the larger theaters, but because we're small, we can be agile. So sometimes we can get lucky and find ourselves with a print of a great film nobody else in the area is showing.

We love to receive your suggestions for films to show. And we really do try our best to honor those suggestions. Just keep in mind that most of the time the decision of what shows and what doesn't isn't entirely under our control.

How do I contact the theater?

You can contact us by sending an email to movies@dragonflycinema.com. You can also call 360-519-4333 and leave a message for us.

Is the Dragonfly Cinema haunted?

It depends on who you talk to. There are some who believe there's something a bit spooky going on upstairs in the projection booth. Equipment will occationally just stop working, then start working again. Things will move around from place to place. Now granted, we don't show Ghostbusters every weekend, so that may account for the something up there thinking it can get away with stuff. If you happen to have a proton pack, I'd be interested in speaking with you about some contracting work. Officially, it is the Dragonfly Cinema's policy to neither confirm nor deny any hauntings.
