I recently went to the Maya Theater and really enjoyed myself. It is very clean inside. The seating was very comfortable. It is like sitting in a recliner in your own living room. I will definitely visit this theater again in the near future.

Nice theater downtown. Reclining seats were wonderful and very comfortable. Free parking in the parking garage next door because it was Labor Day was a bonus.

The upgraded seating is very comfortable. The concession stand prices are, like every theater, exorbitant.

This is my favorite local movie theater by far. It is always clean, the seats are comfortable, and it's very close to my house.
