Essex Cinemas is a locally owned and operated Cinema located in the Essex Outlets. We opened in October of 2001 as the first Stadium Seating Cinema in Vermont. That opening set the bar for comfort and technology and we have grown and expanded since then to ensure we deliver the best possible movie experience to our audiences.

Our continuing growth and improvements are marked by many milestones including;
  • Custom sound systems in all theaters in 2009
  • Massive renovations in 2010
    • The expansion of Theater 1, already the largest screen in Vermont, to incorporate a 50 foot curved screen!
    • Conversion of all Theaters in to All Digital Formats, including 6 RealD 3D screens. These are the ONLY approved RealD 3D systems in Vermont; the best in 3D Movies!
    • Addition of two new theaters, including the One and Only "T-Rex, Theater Real Extreme" Theater! This unique combination of projection, screen, sound and seating has to be experienced to be believed!
    • June of 2011; T-Rex approved by RealD as the only RealD "Mega Theater" in Vermont capable of playing special extra-bright version of 3D movies. Our high power projectors make ReallD 3D jump off the screen!
    • Spring of 2012; T-Rex officially listed as Vermont’s Only Large Format Theater! This recognition by the Movie Industry places our T-Rex Theater in the same category as IMax and other proprietary cinema systems.
There are many more, and the improvements are ongoing. Our goal is to provide a friendly atmosphere, the most comfortable theaters and the best video and sound available!

When you go out to dinner you choose not only good food but also good service and a great atmosphere. The Cinema Experience should be no less satisfying! We strive to bring more than a room in which to watch a movie. From the moment you walk in we want your visit to be a very pleasant experience. Our staff is here to help you, first and foremost. We take pride in Customer Satisfaction, so if anything is not Just Right at Essex Cinemas, please let us know.

A bit more about the unique T-Rex Theater! Essex Cinemas’ T-Rex Theater is the only Large-Format Theater in Vermont and is listed as such alongside IMAX and similar venues. The sixty-foot curved screen, 10,400 watt Dolby 7.1 Surround Sound System and Ultra-Bright capabilities provide the very best in video and audio presentation. The 400 seats are extra wide with Rocker Backs and Memory Foam to give you the best seat in the house, no matter where you choose to sit! Let us show you why Essex Cinemas should be your First Choice in Theaters!
