The Movie Theater is a building that allows players to watch movies, alone or with a guest, once per week. It is unlocked after completing the Community Center. The night before the first rainy or stormy day after completing the Community Center, there is a cutscene of a lightning bolt striking the doors to the abandoned JojaMart. Afterwards, the player may enter the abandoned JojaMart and find the Missing Bundle. The night after completing the Missing Bundle, the Junimos will build a Movie Theater.
Players must purchase a Movie Ticket for 1,000g to enter the Movie Theater. Gifting a ticket to a villager will invite them to the movies with you. To see the movie with the villager, you must enter the theater on the same day you give them the ticket; otherwise, the ticket you gave them is forgotten.
There are 8 movies in total. Movies repeat on a 2-year cycle, based on the season in which the player unlocks the Movie Theater. All four "year 1" movies will cycle, followed by year 2 movies, then repeat. The year in the table below refers to the year in which the player first unlocks the Theater.
Asking a guest to a loved movie earns 200 Friendship points with the guest, a liked movie earns 100 Friendship points, and a disliked movie neither earns nor costs friendship points with the guest.
Note that Penny will love any movie if Pam is also present. Although you cannot invite both of them, there is a small chance that Pam will be in the audience of the movie when you invite Penny, as random community members are sometimes in the movie theater during the movie.

Players can choose to purchase a snack for their guest at the concessions counter. Purchasing a loved snack earns 50 Friendship points with the guest, a liked snack earns 25 Friendship points, and a disliked snack neither earns nor costs friendship points with the guest. Only five foods out of the following are randomly offered at a time for the player to select for their guest.
Inside the lobby is a Crane Game machine. Players can play the Crane Game for 500g to win prizes. There is a 25% chance that the Crane Game will be occupied by a man, and unplayable. The Crane Game is always occupied after watching a movie.
After paying to play, the player has 3 chances to grab a prize. There is a 15-second timer for each attempt, which begins when the player first moves the crane.
The first movement is horizontal, and places the crane (right-arrow on keyboard). The second movement is vertical, and drops the crane (down-arrow on keyboard). The crane will drop to the position of its shadow, which can be controlled by holding the down-arrow. Once the down-arrow button is released, the crane will drop. When the crane reaches its shadow, it will stop and grab any prize at that location.
The crane may drop the prize on its way to the collection chute at the left. The further away from the chute the item is, and the less firm the crane's grasp on the item is, the more likely it is to drop it.
