We were curious to see a newly-released off-beat movie, and this was the closest movie theater that was showing it. It's in the middle of Wlatham, but there is a large parking complex behind it that is free on Sundays (when we were here). Prices...More

Great local 6 screen theater offering up first run blockbusters as well as great independent pics. Low stress alternative to the mall complexes.

If you live in the area, this is a convenient theater (when they play the current release you are interested in, which often does not happen). However, it is relatively expensive considering it is an older theater, is not stadium seating, and is small both...More

The Embassy is always there for you when you're trying to see that Oscar flick that's not showing anywhere else. Plenty of parking available and ticket prices are reasonable. It's not one of those older theaters they have NEVER updated (I'm talking to you Newton)....More

This theater shows a lot of movies simultaneously, but doesn't feel like a big-box movie theater. The movies shown here are generally the more intelligent flicks. Foods offered are the general movie theater fare, and there an outstanding variety of restaurants on Moody Street for...More

All theaters are on the first floor, but the restrooms are upstairs. There is an elevator. Seats are comfortable with cup holders attached to the seat in front of you. All seemed clean. Embassy screens the better movies that don't come to your everyday cineplex....More

It's not like the big megatheaters, and that works for me. Parking is not bad, as there is a lot behind the theater. And there are plenty of restaurants along Moody Street to make this a dinner and a movie place. The movie selection is...More

Great little theater in the middle of downtown Waltham. We come here often. This is very convenient to get to downtown and has a much better selection of movies. Located off of Moody Street makes it a great place for a dinner and a movie....More

Convenient (and cheap) parking, very friendly staff and a reasonable selection of movies. They used to show a good selection of "artsy" movies, which they now leave to the Kendall (which takes too long to get to.)
