I chose this theatre to view "The Judge" in Oct. 2014. The last time I was in this theatre was to see "American Beauty," and vowed back then Id never go back to this particular theater because of the uncomfortable seats. Well, I broke the vow due to a request from a friend. During the coming attractions, I had to cover my ears as a result of the incredible volume. I actually approached the manager to tone the volume down, since my date and I were the only ones in the theatre. He brushed my request off, saying the volume would be appropriate during the actual movie, which it was. However, I had to cover my ears throughout the coming attractions. UNSAT. Is it THAT difficult to change the volume, I thought??? The seating had not appeared to change in the 10 years or so since Id been there. I felt squashed when my date put an arm on the arm rest between us. I found myself rearranging every ten minutes or so, and having a desk job by trade, I may be more aware of seat comfort, but I have to tell you that I have renewed my vow on NOT going to Gallery Cinemas. Ill pass on this theatre. By the way, $6 for a medium popcorn.
Please dont listen to nit picking reviewers squawking about seat size. Lets be honest.... this is a small town theater. Dont come here expecting plush stadium seats, IMAX, a full arcade or automated ticketing. Instead what you get is small crowds, clean digital projection, quality sound, room to spread out in your seats, good prices on tickets / food and friendly staff. The seats are fine... theyre not IMAX seats, but theyre just fine. The food and tickets are reasonably priced. Please be realistic and remember that food and soda is where movie theaters make their $ and stay in business. For a theater this size... if theyre lucky, they break even on ticket sales. All that said, the ticket / food prices are still cheaper than anywhere else. Relax a little.... beat the crowds, and go enjoy a movie close to home.
I do love this theatere. Very clean and good prices. Unfortunately tonight (Tuesday april 25th around 645) the man who was at the desk where I get the tickets from was very rude to me. He raised his voice at me and was extremely rude. Also when I was paying for my ticket he was saying "next in line" and taking other people when I wasnt even checked out yet. I have never in my life wrote a bad review about anyone, but this very bothered me and now I dont want to go there again because of this. But besides him I love the place!
Lets be honest here guys. Its a theater. Nothing more, nothing less. If you live in and around Colchester, the short drive to a small theater beats the half-hour drive to a crowded theater in manchester. Popcorn is popcorn, snacks are snacks, soda is soda, theater is theater. If all you have to complain about is the snug seats, then youre clearly spoiled by the luxury cinemas. $6 for a medium popcorn? Try a large and bring some friends; large popcorn and drinks get a free refill.
Honestly I dont have high standards. This place is actually really good except for the fact that the tickets are ten dollars. Literally I could drive 15 more minutes to another place that has tickets for 7 dollars. Like come on guys, we get that this is a small town movie place but come on. Ten dollars for a ticket? Lets get real, that is kinda expensive.

A small-town cinema that runs the blockbuster, box-office hits and not much else. Gallerys customers are mostly families from the surrounding towns. The theaters and the bathrooms are clean, but there is an ambience and a coziness lacking at this movie theatre. Go there if you want to see a movie, without the frills and frisson of going out.
The convenience is nice but the value is not, For the price of tickets and food, it is over priced, They provide stale popcorn, charge top price for seats and act as if they are providing the top level service.Customer need value and should expect at least fresh popcorn if the price is comparable with large theaters.
Too cramped and over priced. Rebuild your seating and then your prices would be worth it. Oh and offer more to chose from in your concession. The only thing good about going to this theatre is how close to home it is. I rather drive to Manchester or Lisbon to sit in comfortable seating, and have more food to chose.
Love that it is local and close. It does support IMAX and 3D shows. Standard theatre seating but always plenty of seats. Smaller crowds more reasonable prices and clean. Tha fact I can go here and not spend 30 to 40 minutes driving each way is great. The staff are very pleasant.
Great small town movie theater, of a type that is becoming harder and harder to find. They dont have a huge selection of movies, but do always have all the most popular new releases and the prices cannot be beat - least expensive movie experience of anywhere Ive ever been these days.
This is a small town theatre and for those living in the Colchester area it is a very pleasant place to see a film. We are thankful to have a theatre close by. The staff are friendly and the concessions are the standard fare.
Great experience for a small town theater. I live in Colchester, so its great for me. You wont much of a 3D experience, but if I want IMAX I have to go to Manchester. You simply cannot beat the price.
Always pleasant and friendly staff. Great prices. Theatres are always very clean and well maintained. Concessions are always well stocked and readily available.
$5 Tuesdays is great, as long as its not a Sony production then its $7. The theater is clean and never a long wait for ticket sales and food.
The lines are usually nil and it is clean, local and reasonable. Seats are on the snug side,but this just makes sure I share my popcorn!
Inexpensive Tuesday summer movies. The interior is well maintained and prices are reasonable. We like to support local movie theaters.
This is a business that realizes its about making a living not a killing. Well maintained, low prices, and new movies. Perfect.
This was the first time I went to this theater. It was a pleasant experience, very clean and the staff was very courteous
