I have been a long time patron of this movie theater and always choose it over competing theaters. I love the size, the popcorn with real butter and the customer service. Today that service went above and beyond my expectations. The start of the film The Hobbit was delayed due to an issue with the projector. The film started 15... More

The CinemaSalem is an old movie house with various theaters. We saw the movie '1692' in a very small theater that probably sat 30 people. It wasn't cheap, we paid $9 a person. The movie was very short but it was in 3D which, of course, is fun. Our two teenagers actually stayed awake and I think learned something. It... More

A most worthwhile activity to gain a well-produced understanding of the times and the fear experienced then. It is like a contemporary documentary. It lays to rest many of the misconceptions of what happened in Salem. Highly recommend as the first thing to do when visiting Salem. This was the highlight of our visit there, which doesn't say a lot... More

I went to see the History of Halloween in 3D-it seemed very silly and in a tired old theater. I would spend my time elsewhere!

Fun and intimate theatre. I loved that it looked as though it was a bunch of college students that did it...but I don't know how well the Celtic woman went over being a tranny and all. Definitely learned new things...and it was in 3-D! :)

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.
