One East India Square
Cinema Salem is an independent three-screen movie theater in Salem, Mass. Cinema Salem first opened in 2006. Prior to that, a succession of other cinemas occupied the same space. Many North Shore folks recall seeing movies here over the years — from blockbusters to arthouse fare to cheapo dollar-a-ticket shows. In March 2020 Cinema Salem closed its doors amid the COVID-19 pandemic. Fourteen months later, the cinema is reopening on Friday, June 4 under new leadership with a new vision. We’re eager to get back to showing the kind of movies you’ve always enjoyed here. We’ll also be presenting exciting discoveries from cinema’s rich history and more recent gems off the beaten path. In addition, we look forward to an expanded menu of live performances and events as COVID concerns ease. And speaking of COVID, we are continuing precautions for the time being.
