The Clyde Theatre was built in 1937 – the height of the Depression – by Norman and Hazel Clyde. Although a lot more humble than the grand movie palaces being built in the big cities, the new theater was greeted warmly by folks on South Whidbey. After being purchased in 1972, a small stage was added to show live performances of musical acts. Today, the theater offers current movie selections. Visit the website for current movie listings.
