This is a small cinema complex with four theaters plus a small screening room. Cinema Salem receives an excellent selection of movies. Concessions are good, and service is quick and friendly.

My husband and I went in to see the short film "1642". It advertised that a horrifying tale would be told and portrayed the film as haunting. It was narrated by a young woman who spoke with a pleasant voice, while wearing Puritan clothing. Though...More

Independent movie theater, what's nice is they will have unusual or 'off the beaten path' films like The Cabot does in Beverly. Often times they will have movies that are most popular, but are otherwise limited in selection. It's nice that it's in the India...More

This movie theater shows major films, but rarely has the large crowds and delays of the major movie theater complexes. An added plus is the tiny screening room, which offers art house selections.

This is a great privately operated cinema that features many hit movies in a relaxed old school movie house.

I prefer Cinema Salem to the larger theaters in Danvers and Revere. Cheap, validated parking is available in the attached garage-25 cents per hour-and the selection of movies is pretty good. There are rarely lines at the concession stand, and the popcorn is very good.
