“Good low-key date night option”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 20 February 2014

Specializing in second run movies (weeks to a few months after the chain theaters), with recently improved sound and projection and the same low price ($3). Food is good, somewhere between fast food and prepared to order. If you go during the first few days or week of a release, go early...it does tend to sell out. Great website to browse before you go.

“Cheap movies, alcohol, and good food!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 25 June 2013

Movie for 2 with drinks, dinner, and pie for under $25. We love seeing movies here after they leave the main movie theaters. Staff is friendly and clean restrooms are a bonus. We try to see one movie a month. Arrive early to get your food order in so it arrives just as the movie starts. Ask for the Marion berry pie ala mode to arrive half way through the film. Trust me you won't regret the pie.

“Nice Place for a Movie”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 30 May 2013

This place is catching on in Salem. You save a lot by not seeing movies that are just out but the movies are inexpensive and the food good. The theater has plenty of elbow room and even tables. A good place for a fun inexpensive date. Check online for movie times.

“Great price!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 7 May 2013

Just a small price to wach a movie and have dinner at the same time. The menu is extensive including just pop and popcorn. Have a glass of wine or beer if you like while you sit back watching a movie. The tables are comfortable and a great experience for all. Kids are not allowed in after 6 pm with a few exceptions. There is a double bill on Saturdays for kids including a play and a movie. Live comedy shows are presented regulary, as well as broadcasts of important sporting events.

“Greasy, soggy pizza”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 28 March 2013

This theater offers low price tickets for second fun movies and a pub menu that you eat at tables in the auditorium. We ordered a pepperoni pizza that was a big disappointment. It was soggy, tasteless, and greasy.
