Art and Theater in Seaside, Oregon

Arts and Theater on the North Coast



Seaside / Cannon Beach / Gearhart / Arch Cape / Manzanita !

The greatest attraction to Seaside, Cannon Beach, and Gearhart Oregon is, of course, the beach, along with all the other fantastic outdoor activities the area features. But what if the weather outside is frightful and cabin fever is setting in? Not to worry! There are plenty of things to do indoors on the North Coast. With diverse art galleries, state-of-the-art movie theaters, and several live theater options as well, there is no reason to be bored during a Seaside Sou-wester! Here is a sampling of local theatres and galleries.
See our Movies page for local movie options.

In our American culture It’s a Wonderful Life has become almost as familiar as Dickens’ A Christmas Carol. The saga of George Bailey, the Everyman from the small town of Bedford Falls, dreams of escape and adventure only to have them quashed by family obligation and civic duty. His guardian angel descends on Christmas Eve to save him from despair and to remind him – by showing him – what the world would have been like had he never been born and that his life has been, after all, a wonderful life. This faithful adaptation celebrates the faith of the season, as well as the American philosophy of life: hard work, fair play and the love and support of one’s family and community will be rewarded.
