Ugh. Just ugh. Surly staff, way overpriced concessions (more than usual at a movie theater), inedible popcorn, seats very uncomfortable. Bathrooms? Your basic outhouse smells better and it better cleaned. Just skip it and go elsewhere.

$13 for a movie in Clifton Park $7.50 for the same movie at Bowtie in Schenectady! Clean , comfortable, reasonable popcorn. Shows you how greedy these other cinemas are.

Tickets are affordable and free parking. Those are a few perks. However- the seats are a bit uncomfortable, so be prepared for that.

Easy to access, free parking, kid friendly, Comfortable seating, good movie choices. I often take my grandchildren here as they like the kids boxes which include some popcorn, candy and a drink so there are no arguments over what to buy.

Last Sunday, I had the pleasure of attending a movie. This is not something I do often, partially due to the high price. I was thrilled to see it was only $7.50. The concessions were the standard high price. $4.50 for water. This being said,...More

This theater is convenient to many areas surrounding downtown Schenectady. It feels safe, clean, and comfortable. You can park close by in the parking garage for free(just get ticket stamped at box-office if before 5:30PM). The lobby is spacious and the staff are always friendly...More

Located downtown Schenectady, a few doors from Proctor's theatre. On the same block as several quality restaurants, so if you don't want to fill up on popcorn, it's easy to grab a bite to eat before or after catching a movie. Not many movies to...More

This is a small but stylish theatre. I'd rather frequent this local cinema than go to the mall where there are 1000 people who are competing for a good seat. There isn't a bad seat in this cinema. Seats are super comfortable, and the movies...More

Would you like movies that cost less than Regal cinema? How about real butter on your popcorn? Some wine, maybe? Okay, there's more. Would you like no commercials in your pre movie experience and swivel seats that recline a little? I think you just found...More
