See the stuff Hollywood doesn't want you to watch. Or doesn't care enough to produce.
Located just off Moody St. in downtown Waltham, walking into this quirky theater presents you with a grand sweeping staircase above a large lobby. Plenty of parking at a nearby parking garage. The theaters are small, seating around 50 per screen. The chairs were old, but still comfortable.
This theater shows 1st run movies, as well as independent films. The lobby reminds me of an elaborate live theater. It has a funky concession counter, featuring italian drinks and the regular movie fare. The parking garage is behind the theater, with a walkway that brings you back to the front entrance. They run some pretty intersting films.
The cinema is clean, the patrons are friendly, The concession stand is expensive, but that is the uually true for all movie theatres. There is plenty of parking. The theatre plays a great movies. There are matinee shows...I enjoy this cinema. Not a lot of people seem to go here though which is surprising considering that it is one of the nicest movie theaters around the area.
Pros: Crowd, Empty
Cons: Selection, Parking, Comfort
