I went to see a movie. Lines were a bit long, but they sped right thru. Seats in theatre are nice and comfortable and staff is helpfull. Snack bar prices are average but there are some decent deals.

It's located in what appears to be a rejuvenated older section of town. We had used tripadvisor to check for movie theaters near our motel and decided on the Maya theater. Better still, it was Wednesday and the $4 ticket price was in effect for seniors! We got to watch the movie "Sully." Good movie in a comfortable theater. The... More

Maya Cinemas is very close to my home and we usually make it a point to go there at least once a week or when a desirable new movie comes out. It's in the heart of Old Town Salinas so you can easily make it a "dinner and a movie" outing as there are several restaurants and drinking establishments in... More

This is the first new, state of the art movie theater built in this part of Salinas in decades. Needless to say, in 2005, it opened to very enthusiastic crowds. Many screens, large and small, great sound system, and even some 3-D and motion type seats have allowed it to stay competitive. But the carpets are old and nasty...some of... More

Affordable, Spacious, and...Did I Mention Popcorn with Tapatio, Jalapenos, and Lime? In the era of homogeneous, and at times, dare I say,"soul-less", corporate dominated establishments-Maya Cinemas is truly Unique! Upon arrival, you'll notice affordable ticket prices (at least your pocket will), large theaters, and throw back movie days where one can enjoy and/or share in classic films produced before the...

The ticket booth was simple and quick, entering the theater was nice the ticket taker told all of us what theater and location our movie will be showing, (& he also Validated our parking!) restrooms were near and easy to find. We found our theater and claimed our row of seats and with plenty of time we elected a "snack... More

This theater will tend to have an impressive selection of current mainstream hit movies. It rarely has "art" films, political films or anything not commercially successful. But, the cinemas are very comfortable and location is great, right in the heart of Oldtown Salinas, near the Steinbeck Center and several restaurants and bars.

I have never been dissatisfied with my movie experience at Maya. Always clean and on time. Parking is always available in the garage and I have always felt safe. For the foodies, there are many eating opportunities close by.

Clean, comfortable and affordable. The only place to go when we go out to the movies. There are also good eateries with walking distance and the Stieinbecl center is right down the street.

This is my main movie theatre of choice when I do go to the movies. I prefer to watch movies at home because of how expensive going to the movies has become over the years but when we do go out, this is where we go. Theatre's are all clean, lines are not too long for snacks and they valid... More
