My husband and I went in to see the short film "1642". It advertised that a horrifying tale would be told and portrayed the film as haunting. It was narrated by a young woman who spoke with a pleasant voice, while wearing Puritan clothing. Though...More

Independent movie theater, what's nice is they will have unusual or 'off the beaten path' films like The Cabot does in Beverly. Often times they will have movies that are most popular, but are otherwise limited in selection. It's nice that it's in the India...More

This movie theater shows major films, but rarely has the large crowds and delays of the major movie theater complexes. An added plus is the tiny screening room, which offers art house selections.

Are you going to Salem to get into the spirit of Halloween? I recommend this show 100%. The show includes amazing magic that will entertain and fool everyone, even if you think you know how magic tricks work. Other parts are just shocking when there...More

I completely agree with Laura's review. There was no magic at all and no psychic abilities either. This show should be cancelled for stealing people's money under the guise of it being a good magic show. If you watch the trailer, it gives a creepy,...More

I prefer Cinema Salem to the larger theaters in Danvers and Revere. Cheap, validated parking is available in the attached garage-25 cents per hour-and the selection of movies is pretty good. There are rarely lines at the concession stand, and the popcorn is very good.

This is a one man show and is very poorly done. Very few laughs and even less magic. It's dry and Boring! May as well just flush your money down one of the out houses right next to the venue. Abolutely the worst show ever!
