From the outside, Yosemite Cinema might just look like any other local movie theatre.  

It has a few theatres for the latest releases and the classics, as well as classic concessions. 

But rallying around this small-town theatre is a community that was responsible for the first community-supported theatre in the nation and inside is the only permanent positron power virtual reality theater in the united states.

The VR theatre is where guests can take part in “Experience Yosemite,” the theatre’s virtual reality trip through Yosemite National Park.

Yosemite Cinema is conveniently located along the Fossils to Falls Road Trip brought to you by Visit Yosemite Madera County featuring eight different trading cards at various stops along the way.

Each card features a different Yosemite Welcoming Committee character. You only need to collect two to enter to win the Yosemite Adventure Contest. Collect all eight and get more entries.

The grand prize is a two-night stay in South Yosemite, gift cards, dining experiences, and your choice of a Yosemite family adventure package. Visit to learn more.
