This theater always has good movies. Staff is very friendly. they should locate ticket office elsewhere however. Many times there are lines outside and if the weather is lousy makes it not very desirable to go to.

The Embassy shows a mix of popular and independent movies. Comfortable seats with excellent sight lines to the screen. Good popcorn and coffee. Recommend buying tickets for Saturday nights in advance. Free parking behind the theater. Very convenient to Lizzie's outstanding ice cream shop after the movie.

Having an option of a small homey movie theater with movie selection is a treat. I also appreciate the attentive team and the popcorn. If you are interested in a watching a movie comfortably without large crowds and loads of nostalgia this is the place to be.

My Partner and I love going to Embassy Cinema in Waltham. The theaters are clean and nice. They show a number of independent films you cannot find elsewhere as well as show a number of the top movies out there.
