Cartoon Network's Cartoon Theatre (also known as Cartoon Network Presents: Cartoon Theatre or simply Cartoon Theatre) was a movie block that aired on Cartoon Network from 1998 to 2007. Originally, the block aired Saturday nights at 8:00 PM, with encore presentations on Sunday at 10:00 AM. The block aired animated films that were distributed by Hanna-Barbera Studios, Paramount, Universal, Sony, 20th Century Fox, Warner Bros., Dreamworks, and Metro-Goldwyn Mayer.

The block was hosted by the announcer Don LaFontaine, but later in June 2004, when Cartoon Network entered the City era, LaFontaine was replaced by Ed from Ed, Edd n Eddy as an movie theatre usher, as well as Nikki as the female announcer (from 2004-2006) and the male announcer (from 2006-2007) in the bumpers and promos.

Beginning in late 2005, Cartoon Theatre began airing live-action movies such as Dumb and Dumber and Cats & Dogs on a semi-regular basis.
