Love this theater. Easy parking. Good food and drinks to take in to watch your favorite movie. Seats are comfortable and spacious.

I’ve attended their recent Oscar Gala and a secret cinema + dinner event, with a group of 3 for each. The Oscars event had very limited info on the Maple Theatre’s own website (see photo which says SYNOPSIS) and the same info was in the email they sent to advertise it. I just happened to see it listed online elsewhere (eventbrite?) and there was MUCH more detail (see other photos) - we wouldn’t have even known to arrive early for the swag bags if I hadn’t seen that! We couldn’t believe the poor food arrangement for the Oscar event. The tables were set up so only a single line of people could go through at once, resulting in a long line running through the restaurant. Honestly – had they never been through a buffet line before? You pull the tables away from the wall so twice as many people can go through the line at once, utilizing each side of the table… (There was enough room for it.). Some utensils for retrieving food were sitting in the actual food containers (with handles resting on the food) when we went through the line – so gross! You need to supply appropriate utensils for grasping whatever the items are, with a small plate or bowl in front where the utensils can rest between use. For secret cinema and dinner, we were originally told to let them know ahead of time what food we wanted, from their “old menu”. None of us had eaten at the café before so we had no idea what the “old menu” choices might be and no info was provided. I had to email them three times in a week to request the menu... The first time they said we would have it in a few days. I asked again about 5 days later and was told we would have it “tomorrow”. I asked again 2 days before the event and I believe we finally received it just one day prior to the event. It wasn’t complicated: a few salads, sandwiches, chicken strips and several sides. We enjoyed the food very much but getting that menu together shouldn’t have taken a long time... Even though we had pre-registered for secret cinema & dinner they were TOTALLY unprepared for how to charge us for the event - we each wanted to pay separately, which really shouldn’t be that confusing... When we ordered our food in the cafe, there was more confusion. They asked us what size soup we wanted (they should have known what was included) and we received different size drink cups... We enjoyed the events and would all return for the same type of thing again but we wish they had a good manager in charge to get things more organized! They’ve been telling me for years that they’re going to accept Apple pay “soon”. It’s time to be doing that already!! …

Theatre is still great. Attached restaurant is not good. This used to be a nice place for apps n drinks before the movie but now it is more like fast food with no atmosphere

We enjoy the ease and convenience of The Maple Theaters. There is plenty of parking and they make purchasing the tickets a breeze. The popcorn is yummy too. The staff is very polite and always helpful. The seats are comfortable as well as the theater is clean. It’s a gem.
