If youre trying to see the latest superhero movie keep going down the road to the Hampshire Mall. If, on the other hand, youre hoping to watch something a bit quirkier, a little more heartfelt, or just downright weird youve come to the right place. Grab a late night coffee or cocktail at Amherst Coffee afterwards for a perfect date night.
We love this cinema. In addition to the kinds of movies we want to see, the venue offers a very friendly staff, delicious snacks, clean and attractive theaters, and cultural events. We make the 45 minute drive to the cinema as much for the unique experience as for the films.
If theres a small distribution or foreign film that Im looking forward to seeing, I can rest assured Amherst Cinema will pick that sucker up upon release. Added perks: craft beer available; large, comfortable auditoriums, festivals and screenings of older/cult films.
Great films, friendly location, interesting community work and dialogues with film directors - and a great pizza joint ( Antonios) nearby for after or before as well as many other good finer ding options. Thanks for re- creating this place after years of effort!!!
Great place to see movies that you wont find at the major chains. Give yourself a little extra time to find parking. Popcorn with real butter! Cookies, drinks, whats not to love about this theatre? Get yourself a membership and save some $ on tickets!
This is such a great place to see all kinds of movies (or films, if you prefer ;). They serve wine, beer, coffee & Italian sodas; popcorn, baked goods & candy. Im not crazy about the separate studio theater, but the regular auditoria are very comfortable.
Perfect conditions to see a film: view never blocked (important for short people!), good sound, comfortable seats. And there is almost always something playing that I want to see. One of the best things about the Northampton-Amherst-Easthampton area.
I have only watched two movies here in the past 6 years. The screen is small and cannot compete with the new IMAX theatres. They do lay independent movies and documentaries that are cool. A lot of older population goes to this cinema hall.
A great selection of films, quality snacks, and non-profit! Amherst Cinema is always a providing a great movie going experience, while also giving back to the community in many ways. A big fan of the smaller theaters and comfy seats!
A good cinema that has a great selection of films. I liked the varied offerings at the snack bar which featured old favorites and goodies that you dont usually see like coffee.
Ive been coming here for years and prefer it over any Cinema/theater in our area. We love the nutritional yeast option too! Id recommend Amherst Cinema to anyone :)

Great movies at a good price (with college student discounts). The smaller theater has a nice feel for the contemporary and arthouse movies they usually show here.
I am so glad that Amherst has this extraordinary cinema with wonderful selection of new and classic art house films at very reasonable prices.
I only wish they did their summer series year round. Fabulous local cinema. Go to Amherst coffee after to talk about the films :)
Always great film picks. The theaters are small, so get there early otherwise you may not get to sit next to your friends!
Awesome movie theater. They choose good films, the Audio Visuals are good, and the prices are fair. What more do you need?
An intimate, small movie theater with a couple of screens. They show more arts films as well as National Theater Live.
Great films, friendly staff, Woodstar Café molasses cookies, wine, beer, Italian sodas, jazz documentaries...its a gem!

LOVE this theatre. They always have a great selection of films. Small screening rooms with super comfortable seats.
Great movies, welcoming ambience, and beer and wine available at the concession stand. What do you want more?
Great films come through here, the staff is always delightful, and I enjoy the smaller and cozier theaters.
