The CinemaSalem is an old movie house with various theaters. We saw the movie '1692' in a very small theater that probably sat 30 people. It wasn't cheap, we paid $9 a person. The movie was very short but it was in 3D which, of...More

A most worthwhile activity to gain a well-produced understanding of the times and the fear experienced then. It is like a contemporary documentary. It lays to rest many of the misconceptions of what happened in Salem. Highly recommend as the first thing to do when...More

I went to see the History of Halloween in 3D-it seemed very silly and in a tired old theater. I would spend my time elsewhere!

Fun and intimate theatre. I loved that it looked as though it was a bunch of college students that did it...but I don't know how well the Celtic woman went over being a tranny and all. Definitely learned new things...and it was in 3-D! :)

Cinema Salem was okay, but "Hysteria", more like Hysterical. First of all the "illusionist/magician", was very obviously walking around the lobby trying to eavesdrop on conversations to get information about the audience prior to the show. I know this is a normal practice, but he...More

This theater is one of the best little theaters in town. They have good movies and neat special feature films about Salem and the witch trials. They are reasonably priced and great for the entire family.

Cinema Salem is my favorite local movie theater. It generally attracts a good selection of films, including some art house films. The popcorn is very good too. Cinema Salem is located next to an excellent restaurant, Thai Place, creating easy dinner and a movie options.

We watched The True 1692 at this theater, and it was a good experience. The staff were helpful and friendly, and the movie was well constructed and worth watching. The 3D was incorporated well, and it was good value for money.

Wow, this place is lame. We saw a movie on a screen the size of the one my parents have at home. The price for a ticket wasn't reduced, but we had to sit on folding chairs in an exit hallway. Horrible. I won't be...More
