Box Car Theater

What's playing at the Box Car Theater?

The Museum’s Box Car Theatre, with 29 original seats from Brownsville’s old Linn Theatre, is in one of our Southern Pacific Boxcars. This fun space is available anytime the museum is open to watch a wide selection of vintage, or not so vintage, movies and documentaries.

We also show evening movies once a month, seasonal or just fun.  Watch our Facebook page…Linn County Historical Museum, or here, for a schedule of showings.
