Just left the Maya theater. We saw Hostiles. It was a great cowboy Indian movie but I’m a western movie kinda girl. This theater has comfortable rocking seats. The snack bar is expensive but all theaters are. The restrooms are clean, the lobby is clean....More

We tend to BYO snacks and drinks because the snack bar prices are, like all theatres, stupid expensive. Super Cush seating, high quality screens and audio, excellent service. The only thing missing is IMAX. Liberal parking. Highly recommend. Oh yes, possible movie hop.
