This is an old theater with pretty uncomfortable seats. For what it is, I would have expected tickets to be cheaper than they are. On the night we went, it was $4.75. I realize that's still a fraction of what the national chains charge, but I would have expected more in the $2-$3 range.

This is a little movie theater, locally owned and family operated, that shows current movies within a few weeks of release. They have great prices on movie tickets. Saturday and Sunday mornings are only $2.75; Tuesdays are only $3.00; and, the rest of the time tickets are $4.50. Popcorn and drinks are about the same price as regular movie theaters.... More

Holiday Cinema is a gem that we are fortunate to still have here in Frederick. With big name, glitzy, pleather recliner modern theaters now vying for the movie goers last dollar, family-owned Holiday Cinema brings comfortable, very reasonably priced movie entertainment to the whole family. They locally crowd sourced new projectors and avoided a government and industry move that likely... More

What are you going to be spending your extra $8.50 on that you saved by seeing a movie here? It won't go far these days but its better than nothing. If you didn't get a chance to see that movie you wanted to at Regal Westview, there's a chance it might eventually turn up here at Holiday Cinemas. That's exactly... More

This movie theater has movies a little later than the big biz. However, that makes it more economical! It has many popular movies once gone form the big movie houses. Also, there are times for kids movies at even a more reduced rate! An older building sure but it works!!!

My family visits here quite often for the value. However the place is run down and is overdue for a update. A lot of the seats are falling a part and the sound is muffled. It was ok when the price was $2 but now it's almost $5 which I think is a little high. Still cheaper than the national... More

If you missed any of the blockbusters when they were in the larger cinemas in town, then, Holiday cinemas will play them a month later and tickets are typically half the price, if not cheaper. The seats are comfortable and the place is clean. If it is a very popular movie, tickets can get sold out, so check early.

This is an older theater but you cannot beat the price of $2.75 for a movie ticket. Especially since these are movies that just left the theater. They have a concession stand as well. I took my son to see Despicable Me 3 times and today we saw The Nut Job
