Jefferson Theatre celebrates 94th anniversary with special screening of Lord of the Rings Trilogy

BEAUMONT, Texas — The month of November marks the 94th Anniversary of the Jefferson Theatre in Downtown Beaumont.

To celebrate, they’re inviting all Southeast Texans to a special 20th anniversary screening of the Lord of the Rings Trilogy on Saturday, Nov. 20.  

Doors open at 10 a.m. The first film, The Fellowship of the Ring, begins at 11 a.m. The Two Towers starts at 2:30 p.m. and The Return of the King begins at 6:00 p.m. 

One ticket for all 3 movies is $10.

Jefferson Theatre is also home to Classic Movie Nights every Friday.

What started as a way to showcase a historic theater has turned into a regular event for both locals and visitors. Mostly every Friday night, families gather together to watch their favorite classic movies inside the Jefferson Theatre.

Tickets prices are $6 for adults and $4 for children. Doors open at 6:00pm and movie starts at 7:00pm

Classic Movie Night showings in November:

  • Nov. 5: Coco
  • Nov. 12: Harry Potter and the Sorcerer’s Stone
  • Nov. 19: My Girl

In August of 2014, the City of Beaumont kicked off Classic Movie Nights by showing the movie Ferris Bueller’s Day Off. The plan was to show a movie once a month, but it was so popular more shows were quickly added.
