“See the Films yuo can;t see anywhere else!”
Reviewed 28 May 2014

Cinemapolis is THE go-to theater for short distribution and art films that cannot be caught within 100 miles of Ithaca. Also, they have many special events with discussion groups after for cause related films. Great seating, and real butter available for popcorn.

“Delightful Arty Cinema”
Reviewed 15 April 2014

This theatre shows a delightful mix of commercial and more independent or lower-budget films. The several theatres are small and cozy, the refreshments actually taste like food, not plastic, the popcorn does not smell like old gym socks but like popcorn, and best of all the films and trailers are played at a reasonable volume level that does not jangle your nervous system. Bravo for Cinemapolis.

“Great locations for excellent films”
Reviewed 6 April 2014

We visit frequently to see movies that are just not available anywhere else. The selection is excellent. The theater is comfortable. Sound and visibility is great. The atmosphere of the place is more adult-like than the teen-focused mall movies. Theaters like Cinemapolis keep the spirit of film alive. Parking is not great but a free weekend lot is a 3 minute walk, and before or after the movie you can enjoy downtown Ithaca.

“Pricey”
Reviewed 4 March 2014

I liked that the theatre is conveniently located downtown but movies are very pricey these days . Not crowded but you have to pay for parking during the day.

“Excellent selection of movies”
Reviewed 20 February 2014

This theater used to be split into two different theaters on separate parts of Ithaca. Combining both movie houses into one is much more convenient. Seating is good and prices are pretty much the same as what is charged at the larger theater in town. The movies shown here are what play in smaller fine arts cinemas across the US. What makes this place 'excellent' is that they show live productions from the National Theater in London. This is an excellent opportunity to see live productions for a fraction of the cost.
