While The Onyx is temporarily closed we're excited to be able to continue to offer a curated selection of first-run films via our virtual screenings! You'll have to make your own organic popcorn and use your own plush seating but otherwise it's like bringing The Onyx home! Questions? See our virtual screening primer.
After much discussion and consideration of options, the Onyx Theatre has decided to temporarily suspend all film screenings beginning Sunday, March 15. While current COVID-19 guidelines only require us to reduce our capacity allowing space for ‘social distancing’ within the theaters, we are listening to experts and feel we must do more to help flatten the curve of the virus, not overwhelm our healthcare systems, and protect you, our valued Onyx community, and our Onyx staff.

We don’t take this decision lightly. We wanted to offer you a respite in the way that the Onyx Theatre has hopefully always offered... a place to spend a couple of hours having a new experience, seeing different worlds and perspectives on screen, or simply being entertained. But, at this point in time we feel compelled to make a decision for what seems to be the most responsible choice for our community and encourage all of you who we care for to stay safe and reduce your exposure as much as possible.

During this temporary closure, we are taking care of our Onyx employees in every way that we can as we do not want them to have any additional stressors while we navigate this evolving situation, and we want them all back greeting you again soon. The Onyx appreciates the public’s patience and understanding during this time.

There will always be a time and a place for movies and there will always be the Onyx to come experience them in. We can’t wait to see you at the movies again as soon as we can!

We will miss you, but we will be back,

The Onyx Staff

Just as our films are selected to showcase unique and independent visions, the wines we’ll serve go beyond the “usual suspects” by focusing on small, artisanal, and family-owned wineries from around the world.

We understand that we are on Nisenan land that was never ceded.
