Ridgecrest, a city with a population of over 27,000, is located in the high desert about 150 miles from Los Angeles. It is home to the China Lake Naval Air Weapons Station so the military plays an important role in its economy.

Thomas Berkes designed the theater, which opened in 1986 with five screens. The Ridgecrest Independent said three more stadium auditoriums opened in July of 2003. Thomas Berkes also designed the addition, which included a new concession stand, bathrooms and a playroom.

The Ridgecrest Cinemas is fortunate to have a captive audience with the closest competition in Tehacapi, about 75 miles away or for a Cinemark experience there is Victorville, about 90 miles away.

Operator Mike McGee, a local businessman, also makes the theater available to local charities to hold fundraisers.
