“Clean and convenient!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 15, 2013

I went to see (don't judge) the new Twilight movie at this theater and I was happy to see that the place was super clean and cozy. On Tuesday nights, they have cheap tickets so check it out! Nice place to see a movie and go to dinner on Moody St after!

“Small movie theater with good movie options”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 9, 2013

I was surprised with how nice this theater was and that there was stadium seating, given that it is a smaller theater. There are a variety of movies to choose from, including big box-office hits.

“Stop The Whining, This Place Is Awesome!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 31, 2013

Some people...

If you have any complaints about this place, please try the Newton Cinema or the one in Belmont, two area 'art theatres' so nasty, dirty and smelly it takes will power even to sit down. You can almost feel the seats breathing underneath you - yuk!

Personally, I'm grateful for any small theatre that is still open - but they can't hold a candle to the Embassy. Honestly, this place is so nice, anyone who complains must be a real whiner. Overpriced food items? Give me a break. When was the last time you found a deal on food at a theatre? Cry, baby, cry!

“Excellent Service”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 23, 2013

It's a small cinema but has a good range of films showing.

It was clean and tidy despite being very busy and the service shown was swift and efficient.
