First, the staff was great. Everyone we encountered had s smile on their face. As for the theatre, it is a bit older. The carpets need a good steam clean. The chairs are a bit hard, but the sound system is awesome at least in...More

The building is really great, also jnside but it seems that the energy is gone long ago. When asking for info on movies they send me in, but there was nothing, so i had to guess. Food choice; poor. The cinemas themselfs are good

This place smells like feet all the time. Very dirty. Tons of people on the weekends, it's right next to the mall and lots of shady people hang out here.

Since moving from Valley Plaza to 1000 California Avenue, Maya Theatre has always been a pleasure to visit. And on my wife, Mary's, birthday, it was extra special. "Interstellar" featuring Matthew Moconahey and Anne Hathaway was terrific! Loved the comfy seats and convenient, adjacent to...More

I really enjoy going to this movie house. Lines are not very long and the popcorn is fresh. Well priced and a very good senior discount program.

Not my favorite theater in town. But they usually do have more movies playing at more times throughout the day and usually have latest in the day showings. Also most of the time they do have the new releases first before other theaters in town.
