Very nice clean theatre with great location---Close to home and I can walk. Tuesday is family day and tickets are less--I think $5.50 each. Senior day is Wednesday and only $4. I really like going in the afternoons when you are most likely to have the theatre almost all to yourself. The staff is friendly. There is a small arcade.... More

I happened to go to see The Martian at the Maya Cinemas in Salinas last night. My friend was very happy and surprised to pay only $4.00 for a 6:35 pm showing. The movie theatre is large, bright and clean. The parking garage behind the theatre validates. I took a walk down the street before the show. There are several... More

Maya is a decent theater, one thing I don't like is their popcorn, and I don't like the fact that they don't layer the butter as they are filling it (like the other big theater in town does...). The quality of their movies is pretty good, however on more than once occasion we've had issues where they had to rewind... More

I am sold ! Totally faithful to this theater, I don't like the theater that's near the mall, it is the one that seems unsafe, Not the Maya. There's a handy parking garage, and if you get your stub stamped from the Maya, parking is free for about 2 hours. We go here very often, there are some homeless people... More

We don't have a lot of choices in Salinas if we want to see a movie. Maya is close and convenient for South Salinas residents. However, parking is an issue, and my children are afraid to walk from the parking garage to the theater because of the current homeless issue in our town. We have been approached by some of... More

This movie theater is located in the heart of downtown Salinas. It's within walking distance of several restaurants and bars and has garage parking which can be validated in the theater. It's a smaller theater but it's easy to get to. However, depending on the movie release, the parking garage could be challenging when it comes to parking.
