Long after the Oscar movies have left the mainstream theaters, generally the only place to find them is at little out-the-way theaters like the Embassy Cinema in Waltham. Even these smaller theaters generally offer online ticket purchases these days, although I found that their machine didn't know about the purchase, so I had to go to the box to pick... More

Clean, gets newer movies but all of the Theatres are tiny. I go to the theatre for the big screen experience. Screens here at Waltham are so small I might as well watch it in my living room, it is cheaper. Parking can be very difficult on weekends, making it iffy whether you can get a seat.

This place runs both independent art house films and major first run blockbusters however it is an art house theater all the way so don't expect the perks of a major cinema chain. Location sits in downtown Waltham off dreary Moody street and is on the center of a side street. One problem with the place, the parking is a... More

This theatre was added in the mid-1990s to Waltham center, and since then has been a star attraction. Really nice movie selection. My only beef -- if you need to use the bathroom it's up a long flight of stairs, or by using a elevator that's slow or not working. But generally a great place to go!

The theater itself was relatively nice and clean. The theaters seem to have less chairs than others. The nice twist is that after the previews and before the move the general manager took a moment to welcome us, tell us his name, and if anyone needed anything to let him know. As we were leaving, the person at the ticket... More

This cinema is handy to downtown Mood Street. Thus you can visit an array of eateries before or after the show. Lots of choices for movies that should satisfy most movie goers. Good selection of the usual movie goodies, plenty of party and senior discounts. Good place to "chill" and catch a flick.

Solid selection of recent blockbusters and arty films too. So many restaurants are nearby, so it's great for a date or family outing. Look for parking in the big parking lot on the other side of Moody Street.

We were curious to see a newly-released off-beat movie, and this was the closest movie theater that was showing it. It's in the middle of Wlatham, but there is a large parking complex behind it that is free on Sundays (when we were here). Prices are a bit lower than at the multi-plexes in the suburbs, and seats are comfortable.... More
