Warwick CinemaMy family and I were super excited to finally visit the new Warwick Cinema in Marblehead as it had been on the “bucket list” for quite some time. We checked their website beforehand for current movie times and decided on seeing Disney’s “ Into the Woods” (more about that movie another time LOL). Being nervous that it would be sold out, we phoned into the cinema and ordered our tickets via credit card over phone which was much easier than I expected. When we arrived, I was happy to see that they had concessions (popcorn, etc) similar to the big movie theater chains. Our movie was being held inside theater 2 known as the screening room. We were a bit confused on how the whole dining thing works and the staff was sadly sort of m. i. a. We had to track someone down to ask for information and we found out that we could either order at the counter where they have concessions or inside the movie theater but must do so before the previews begin. Once inside, we were a bit unimpressed by the conference room type atmosphere. Seats were similar to office chairs seen at an office supply store and tables were a bit awkwardly huge. However, the theater was very clean and the screen was great sized. For dinner we ordered the Panko Chicken Tenders [$11.50] which came with Chipolte BBQ sauce and house fries and also the Three Filet Sliders (mini cheeseburgers) [$15.50] smothered in boursin cheese& caramelized onions .The three filet sliders were absolutely delicious and I especially loved the caramelized onions. The panko tenders however were a bit chewy and overcooked. The flavor was ok, but the dryness of the chicken made it difficult to enjoy. Overall a cool new way to see a film and love that it is local. Quality of food could do a little better. Seats in theater two (although assigned and pricier) were much more comfortable.
- Before purchasing tickets, inquire which room the movie is being held as the two differ in experience and price.
- Show times are displayed on the building as well as on their website. Click here for the link. The only downfall is that it is a small theater so movie selections are extremely limited and tickets can sell out quickly.
- If dining in, there’s not much time between show times so you need to plan your order quickly. Also,there are time restrictions to how late you can order diner. Plan accordingly.
Theatre #1 “Luxury Cinema”
- Movie tickets are highly priced currently $13.75 for adults and $9.00 for child
- Stadium style seating.
- Seating is assigned. Whether you purchase tickets online or in house, be expected to choose your seats ahead of time.
- You may order food (before the previews begin) by pressing the button that is found under the tray on your armrest. A server will provide you a menu, take your order and serve you drinks.
Theatre #2 “Screening Room”
- Movie tickets are reasonably (compared to other theatres) priced. Currently $11.50 adults $8.50 child
- Seating is first come, first serve. However I found the whole room felt sort of like a conference room rather than a movie theatre.
- Same dining options as theatre 1 however much smaller theatre.
- Concessions -similar to major theatre chains: Coke soda products, candy, popcorn, etc.
- Dining Menu- gourmet sandwiches, cheeseburger sliders, chicken fingers, salads
