When you vacation to Napa Valley, you will certainly want to explore wonderful wineries, restaurants, and outdoor activities. However, you might want to catch a good flick! There is a fantastic destination to catch a lazy afternoon or rainy-day movie that is not far from The Wine Country Inn & Cottages : the Cameo Cinema in St. Helena.
A movie at the Cameo Cinema in St. Helena will pair nicely with our Art in the Vineyards Package! To help get you into the creative mood, enjoy a bottle of Schramsberg sparkling wine. You’ll also receive a cheese plate for 2 as well as 2 complimentary easels, 2 canvases, and an assortment of paints.

With 400 seats, 150 opera chairs, a modern stage, and two standing sets, the G&G was “the place” to not only see a movie but other performances as well. Back in the day, if you were going to see a show or attend a special event, you were going to the G&G.
Over many decades, the theater changed hands and names but experienced a rebirth of sorts when a woman named Charlotte Wagner took over the lease in 1996, upgraded the theater, and renamed it the Cameo Cinema. Further improvements were made when Cathy Buck took over the lease from Wagner in 2008. Buck, through a partnership with Nimbus Arts, installed digital sound and projection equipment. Now, this small but mighty theater in St. Helena rivals the biggest and the best in the nation.
In 1921, ticket prices went up from 5 cents to 10 cents, bringing an end to the Nickelodeon Theatre in St. Helena.
The theater is now located at 1340 Main St., St. Helena, CA, just two miles from The Wine Country Inn & Cottages . It’s a short drive or a lovely walk on a beautiful day.
