Clean, comfortable and affordable. The only place to go when we go out to the movies. There are also good eateries with walking distance and the Stieinbecl center is right down the street.

This is my main movie theatre of choice when I do go to the movies. I prefer to watch movies at home because of how expensive going to the movies has become over the years but when we do go out, this is where we go. Theatre's are all clean, lines are not too long for snacks and they valid... More

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
