I think this is the only cinema in Mammoth. it is located inside a shopping center. Unfortunately it is dated and the seats are very uncomfortable. They are very low and bumpy. They do show good current movies. I don't think I will go back...More

It works when you need a break from whatever you are doing in town. We are here nearly once a year, this year needed a break from the smoke from nearby fires.

Some of our party weren't able to ski one day and it was a delightful surprise to be able to go to the movies. You normally wouldn't expect much in Mammoth but the theater had GREAT movies. Wish we had another day to go again....More

If you are in Mammoth Lakes and want to see a movie in a theater than this your only choice. Not bad theatre but don't expect a huge screen.

We had the pleasure of watching Jurassic World on opening night at this little theater. EVERYONE in town was there, it seemed. Even our guest clerk from the hotel! Loved the intimate venue, just don't expect anything but movie, popcorn, soda and fun.

This is the only theater in town. Mammoth has added upscale hotels, shopping, and restaurants, but this theater remains. I don't understand why. It is small, sad, and hardly ever open. Just checked the schedule and they have one showing of each movie a day....More

Although the theater is relatively small, its still nice to be able to see current releases when in the Eastern Sierras. Its in Mammoth Lakes and is a reasonable theater to go to if staying in the June Lake Loop or Mammoth Lakes area. We...More

Nice enough to take in a movie in the Sierras if you so choose,, but somewhat old fashioned and primitive in comparison with the newer, especially the upscale cinemas in the big city.

Okay Minaret Cinemas are not your neon lights theatre. Sometimes it can be a bit cold so wear your icebreaker underwear. However, on the great side the prices are reasonable and they have new movies everyweek. Easy parking, access and simple. For such a small...More
