The Lumina Theater is a locally owned, independent theater near the heart of Chapel Hill in Southern Village.  Enjoy a cozy and unique experience with 5 theaters which always offer first run films shown in an all digital format. An always popular addition to our unique movie experience is our delicious snacks and Lobby bar which features  local Carolina Brewery Beer with seasonal offerings.

Family Policy
Anyone 17 years old or under MUST be accompanied by an adult to see R-rated films and films starting after 8 pm on Fridays & Saturdays.  NO EXCEPTIONS. This means that the adult has to purchase the ticket(s) and see the movie with the minor. The same applies for anyone 12 years old or under and PG-13 films.

Please note that due to distribution restrictions we cannot accept passes for the first 10 days of any feature.

To preserve the theater-going experience for all patrons, we open 30 minutes prior to our first daily showtime and close 5 minutes after our last showtime.
