The Mountaineer Came to Lake City in 1975…



…with five original investors. Over the years out of the original owners, Phillip Virden along with his wife Carolyn, became the sole owners of the Mountaineer.  We opened with three movies in September 1975, Young Frankenstein, The Three Musketeers, and Towering Inferno. Over the years we have been able to show an assortment of film genres to the community.

Over the years our theatre has been a staple to our family, the members to the Lake City, and everyone passing through. We continue to provide memories and entertainment for locals and visitors who take part in our wonderful community.
