Nice mix of films and screen and sound are great. Always a welcome from the manager. Fresh popcorn and Lizzy's ice cream.

My Partner and I love going to Embassy Cinema in Waltham. The theaters are clean and nice. They show a number of independent films you cannot find elsewhere as well as show a number of the top movies out there.

It's nice to have an option to the big megaplexes that all show the same movies. This theater and it's sister theater in Cambridge are the only two local "art" theaters that should films outside the mainstream and we really appreciate it. For the early show at 1:10 pm cost is $9/ticket. Oh yes...there were FOUR of us in the... More

Unlike other theatres, Embassy still has a mom and pop feel. There isn't stadium seating but it doesn't matter - it's a great place to see a movie. They offer discounted tickets on Tuesdays. Check out if you're in the area!

The Embassy has become my go-to theater for movies. The staff is always very friendly and accommodating. The theater is always neat and well-maintained. I plan to be back a lot this year.

This movie theater is off Moody Street in Waltham. Parking around the theater is limited, although there is reasonable parking on the other side of Moody Street. The theater is a little old, but seating is very comfortable. Prices are very reasonable, particularly when compared with Boston. There are two restaurants across the street from the theater which offer reduced... More

A few things I like about the Embassy: First, if you want an opinion about a movie, ask the ticket office staff. I've found their descriptions and comments to be more accurate than I would have expected. Movie selections range from the better blockbusters to nice indy films. The location very convenient, with ample parking right behind the theatre-- and... More
