The Lindsay offers an 11,800-square-foot, state-of-the-art facility built in 2017 for daily screenings and special programming including cultural performances, exhibits and other events and exhibits, earning Pittsburgh Magazine’s praise as “one of the city’s best movie theaters.”
Inside a spacious, sleek lobby, guests purchase tickets and concessions at a one-stop customer service center. The two screening rooms, flexible event/performance area and entrances to the building are fully accessible. In addition to men’s and women’s restrooms, the Theater has a private, unisex/gender neutral restroom that can accommodate wheelchairs and families (with a diaper-changing station).
Podium and microphone
Multiple configurations have accommodated filmmaker, community and other receptions, script readings, dance and music performances, live theater, educational outreach and classes, school, networking and civic events.
In 2020, the Theater enhanced its ventilation with state-of-the-art HVAC technology that continuously delivers fresh outside air throughout the entire building, completely turning over air 5 times per hour, far exceeding the commercial recommended minimum. Before reaching the screening rooms, air passes through electrostatic dual ionization purifiers that kill 99.4% of viruses (including COVID-19, MRSA, SARS and the common cold) plus bacteria and molds, and minimizing allergens and pollutants.
Inside the screening rooms, air flows in vertical columns instead of sweeping horizontally across rows of seating, reducing potential spread of contaminants and delivering cleaner, healthier air to our guests.
Theater facilities are constructed on land owned by Sewickley Borough. This long-term lease agreement involves only the Theater building and its adjacent sidewalk. All other parts of the property, including the entranceway and the green space, is under the management of Sewickley Borough; questions about use of this space should be directed to borough offices.
The Theater prioritizes serving the public at large and makes special accommodations for schools, partner nonprofits and other affinity groups.
Private rentals are no longer available and the Theater cannot accommodate space rental for birthday cake or additional festivities.
Group celebrations such as birthday parties can be accommodated by sitting together at a public screening when the Theater is contacted in advance. Groups of 10 or more are always eligible for discounted tickets ($8.75). In addition, payment for a concessions tab can be pre-arranged with management.
