Cinema Salem was okay, but "Hysteria", more like Hysterical. First of all the "illusionist/magician", was very obviously walking around the lobby trying to eavesdrop on conversations to get information about the audience prior to the show. I know this is a normal practice, but he kind of blew it by not being subtle. During the show he was awkward, unpracticed,... More

The CinemaSalem is a tired, old movie house in a mall that has seen a better day. We saw the movie 1692 and the theater we were in could not have been much bigger than 10x12 and have more than 15 chairs in it. The screen seemed like it was a 65" TV screen. I'm sure it was bigger but... More

This theater is one of the best little theaters in town. They have good movies and neat special feature films about Salem and the witch trials. They are reasonably priced and great for the entire family.

Cinema Salem is my favorite local movie theater. It generally attracts a good selection of films, including some art house films. The popcorn is very good too. Cinema Salem is located next to an excellent restaurant, Thai Place, creating easy dinner and a movie options.

We watched The True 1692 at this theater, and it was a good experience. The staff were helpful and friendly, and the movie was well constructed and worth watching. The 3D was incorporated well, and it was good value for money.

Wow, this place is lame. We saw a movie on a screen the size of the one my parents have at home. The price for a ticket wasn't reduced, but we had to sit on folding chairs in an exit hallway. Horrible. I won't be going back.

I live nearby and the convenience of it is appealing. I also try to avoid the large cinemas at the malls. I like the coffee cafe right outside it, which is fairly new. Unfortunately, this place does need some updates, as it is showing lots of wear and tear, and hasn't been updated for quite some time (especially the bathrooms.)

Cinema Salem is a lovely little local theatre. It has three regular theatres and a smaller, 18-person viewing room that I think is typically used for independent films or their own historical films about Salem and the North Shore, which locals and visitors alike should see. My friends and I love coming here, not only because it's convenient for us... More
