Gloucester Cinema

I'm not a big movie person, but I thought I'd give a quick report on a theater that we went to last weekend because the theater turned out to be a pleasant surprise. The Gloucester Cinema doesn't look much from the outside (in fact the marquee along the front advertises for ice cream and an ATM inside) but don't judge this book by its cover. Once you walk through the cramped lobby with a handful of video games and get into the theater (or at least the one of three screens on which we watched a movie this week) you'll get a movie experience on par with the major chains. The seats are comfortable, the screen of sufficient size, and the sound system is top-rate. Concession prices for reasonable--by movie standards, of course ($7.50 for a jumbo popcorn and soda). The best part: movies start at the listed movie times. You're not bombarded by 20 minutes of ads followed by 20 minutes of previews. The Gloucester Cinema is on Route 133 in Gloucester.
