Food is good and the people that work there are great!!!!! You cannot beat the price of the movie ($30 MP - about $2.40 USD) or the easy location.

Cairo Cinema is small and clean and a good place to go with some friends to see films hard to see in other places. They also rent DVD's downstairs. Food is served and the cinema can be rented out for the night by a group.

This is a great little cafe. Recently they added entrees to their cafe menu. The menu is limited to salads and pasta, but the new food is very good. What makes this cafe unique is the small cinema upstairs. The chairs are super comfortable and they will bring drinks and snacks right to your seat. They also rent DVDs and... More

Itzimna is a quiet neighborhood so this place is a great destination if you want a coffee or a beer, a snack, a good movie and a nice environment. The theater upstairs is airconditioned and has very comfortable seats. It´s not huge so get there early.

This theatr has regular movie showings, and for about $30 USD you can rent the theater for a showing of any of their large selection of DVDs, including classics, contemporary films and documentaries in English and Spanish, with subtitles in both these languages and others. They also have a cafe, and you can enjoy tea, coffee, cold drinks and snacks... More

This small cafe and cinema is a great find in Merida.  They have a small upstairs cinema with only about 15-20 seats but they are real cinema seats.  They show independent and classic films, often in series, i.e. a Hitchcock film series or a Coen Brother's film series.  You can rent the entire place with a group of friends and...
