The Premiere is a mall movie theater where Josh, and formerly Drake works. The Premiere was formally run by Helen. The theater has 7 movie screens, a food stall, and 2 restrooms. There are several employees shown at the theater. Many are first seen in the "Movie Job" episode. These include Josh himself, Gavin, a quite mysterious guy, and "Crazy" Steve. Steve got his title, because he appears to scream at almost every customer at the theater and sometimes, does somewhat disgusting stuff. In "Merry Christmas, Drake and Josh", the Premiere is shown to be a lot larger than it looks. And it was the first time it showed anyone on the roof. Also, instead of walls on all sides, on one side it's a shopping mall (or cineplex), and it looks as though it's on the highest floor of a building, and the outside is totally different.

It is revealed that the previous owner, Helen, left her job at the Premiere and went to work at Hollywood Arts on the show Victorious, also created by Dan Schneider. It is unknown who runs the theater after Helen's departure, but it is possible that the job goes to either "Crazy" Steve or Josh (assuming that either of them would still be working at the theater at the time).

On the right of the Premiere, you see a bakery building called "Schneider's Bakery", which could be a reference to Dan Schneider and his company.

At the end of Really Big Shrimp, it was closed for Helen and Buzz's wedding, due to a fire.




In episode "Helen's Surgery", Megan came up with the idea to make a cup that was design to hold 2 candy boxes, soda, straw, and popcorn. Helen found Megan's Idea smart. Megan and Helen began selling Megans Cup-O-Stuff idea to all of the customers.
