Since March of 2006, residents of Hackensack and surrounding Northern Minnesota towns have been given the opportunity to watch first run films at the beautiful Bear Pause Theater. The existence of the theater has helped casual and avid movie goers alike enjoy both blockbuster and quieter hits without the hassle of having to drive an hour or more to the closest theater.

Our 144-by-90 foot building has four theaters of varying size, each referred to as "dens". While our first largest theater seats 189 people, our second largest seats 123, and our smallest two seat 97 and 88, respectively.

The theater offers a wide range of amenities that cater to just about everyone, from a party room to our VIP room (which is located above our largest theater). Each of these rooms can be rented out for special events such as birthdays, anniversaries, and holiday parties, while the VIP room can simply be rented for a little extra privacy during film screening. Our four theaters are also open for rental for business meetings, seminars, etc. (A note that all of our screens are PowerPoint and projection capable!) Any of the latter mentioned and more can be available to you by contacting our theater through phone (218-675-5357) or email!

Other amenities at Bear Pause Theater include:

    • An overall seating capacity of 497 between all four theaters.
    • Top of the line stadium seating complete with cup holders.
    • Concessions trays and booster seats available for convenience. 
    • A large lobby.
    • A fully stocked concessions area that offers both classic and unique choices in food and beverage, including: carbonated Pepsi beverages, freshly made popcorn, cold bottled beverages, slushies, candy, nachos (with optional jalapenos!), mini donuts, soft pretzels, and more.
