Fantastic and the ultimate contrast to the big box theatres. In preparation for this weekend's oscars, I have been on a quest to see as many movies as possible and have gone to many different theatres around town. This one is the real deal - local, independent, and unusually affordable. The popcorn is made fresh before your eyes, tastes great, and is served with toppings like brewer's yeast (my favorite) and parmesan cheese. For half the price I had twice as much fun and felt good about supporting a local business in my own neighborhood. If you want to be treated rudely and spend a fortune on crappy, stale popcorn and flat, watered down pop, continue to go to the chain theatres. But, if you want to have fun in a cool place with character and save tons of dollars in the process, go to Cinemagic!

Pros: Price and ambiance

Cons: They don't take cards but have an ATM. Way easier if you bring cash.

The Cinemagic is a cozy little theatre. They usually have only one movie playing at a time, but it changes every week or every other week (except when Juno played for about a month straight last year, which was annoying. Very reasonable price- $6, or $4 for a student ticket. The ladies who run the place are awesome, and the inside is plastered with upcoming movie posters. The seats are old but comfortable. A very atmospheric place!

Pros: price, comfort, uncrowded

This is a charming old cinema that shows second run foreign and independant films in a very spacious theatre that even possesses rocking-chair comfort. Highly recommended if you missed the initial showing of a film that may have already played at more bland Regal cinema.
