Gateway Twin Cinema has been providing affordable family entertainment to the Clinton community for over 40 years. With theaters in smaller towns in rural America diapering over the past couple of decades due to slim profit margins, improved highway infrastructure and most recently the transition from film projectors to digital projectors Clinton has been fortunate to have a community minded owner that understands the value that our theater provides. Sid and Judy King started their journey in the cinema business in 1976 when they bought the local theater that was located on Griggs St in historic downtown Clinton. The Kings would call the old theater home for 8 years and while it functioned fine with approximately 200 seats the need for a new location was evident. In 1984 the Kings constructed their current theater at 3008 Highway 65. Their new location provided the opportunity to increase audience size, install a second screen, and allowed overall improvements across the board.

The Gateway Twin Cinema is open Monday through Sunday with regular showings at 7:30 P.M. Adult tickets are $7 and children 12 and under admitted for $5. Matinee showings are at 2 p.m. on Sunday where $5 gains admission for all ages. Still looking for a deal? Gateway also has their Wednesday night special where movie goers get free popcorn and soft drink with each ticket purchased. With the newest movies being shown weekly and renovated sound, picture and seating you can catch the same primer showing with the same experience in your backyard for a fraction of the price.
