Belmont Cinema shows relatively recent movies in a friendly local theater. They are slowly but surely upgrading their seats and they are never crowded. I would give them 5 stars if they accepted credit cards.

Studio Cinema recently replaced most of their old seats with much comfier seats and couches. The new seats make a HUGE difference in the movie experience! Couches, buttery popcorn and good movies — So glad to have this nearby.

Whatever possessed the management to install those most uncomfortable seats? Feet don’t reach the floor.,back doesn’t reach without you rolling up your coat and using it for a pillow. We have been going to the Studio for over 30 years,but no more.. Also, senior admission...More

We try to go to this cinema often as we want to keep it open and running. They were closed for a time and did some renovations. One screen, family run, very reasonable ticket and concession prices. Plenty of street parking.

I love this neighborhood movie house. Lots of high quality ---mostly independent---films. Nice renovation so you now experience this comfy lounge atmosphere coupled with a quaint neighborhood feel. This great guy welcomes people, sells tix, manages the place. Even though hundreds of people visit, he...More

For a small location it is good to try out 1 time. Nothing is clean about this place and has been this way my whole life. After going to other movie theaters near by I would not go back here. Sorry for the bad review...More

The remodeled seats are uncomfortable. The tables for food are not positioned to eat comfortably. The worst part is the whole theatre smelled of spoiled food and made me sick. I could barely sit thru the film and felt dirty when I got out. Dining...More

Studio Cinema in Belmont MA will appeal to those who remember solo movie theaters, "middle of the block" type of place, never crowded, showing first run movies one at a time (maximum two on offer, but never more). Loyal neighborhood clientele; this place is quite...More

As I live only a few blocks away, it's definitely my local theater and I go somewhat regularly. But that's really mostly out of convenience. You'd assume the tickets would be noticeably less than the major theaters, but the cost is pretty close. It's nice...More
