REVIEWS OF Riverview Cinemas 8 & Playhouse IN Connecticut

Ricky Altieri

Friendly staff and clean theaters/ bathrooms. The theaters have comfortable seats and great viewing angles.

Lyn Rad

Beautiful theater, easy to get to. Bright, easy access, Very well maintained. Great prices on tickets and concession. Seats are extremely comfortable ... recline, heated,not ripped nor are they "springy" ... wide width for all sizes! As soon as movie was over, 3-person cleaning crew came in to sweep ...very impressive! Highly recommend this theater!

Mile High Native

Outstanding theater! The seats are very comfortable. Heated and reclining. The theaters are smaller than most which makes the watching of movies more enjoyable. Movie prices are actually better than bigger theaters. All the people that work there are very polite and helpful.

Paul Almeida

Comfortable and clean theater.

Baron Jacobs

Was very skeptical going in, however I don't have e anything but praise. The staff is great, the heated reclining comfortable seats are great, the popcorn was great. Truly and happily surprised with how great this place is.

Peter Kopcha

Price was reasonable. Comfortable reclining seats. Volume wasn't overbearing. Only a few trailers. Definitely would go back again.

Lisa Schain

This is my favorite theater! Seats are incredible so comfy and they are heated. Popcorn is really good too. Place is brand new and so clean. Love this place. It makes going to the movies a special event!

Amazing when I went to see avengers endgame the theatre shook so I felt as if I was in the movie.

Janette M

Clean, comfortable, very comfortable, and roomy. Excellent screens, sound and choices in movies. Priced right. And yummy popcorn. Love this theatre!!

Derrick Mimms

It was a fun day with my baby girl

Rogerio da Mata

Comfortable, great value for my family of four.

Amanda Crisp

Best movie theater ever! They have reclining heated seats that are very spacious. They also have a large selection of icees if you or a kid you know enjoys those frosty treats!

Jzon Gonzalez

Such a fancy theater to visit when in the area very comfortable. Everything looks brand new and yes they have slushies ...

Robert Nimkoff

Clean, new with heated reclining comfy seats! Two cafes one with smoothies and one with coffees and pastries. Parking a bit limited during busy times but not sure if there is overflow in rear. Nice Italian restaurant next door for pre theater dinner. Easy access off I84.

Will Fitzpatrick

Best Place to go to the Movies in Western Connecticut! The stadium seating is fantastic. There's nobody behind you or in front of you. Southbury has a great theater! The only downside is that those seats are really easy to fall asleep in!

Joseph Marx

I don’t understand how this many people love this theater. You have to wait in lines to see a movie. Waiting in a line is one of the worst experiences at an amusement park, never mind a theater. I have been to many theaters far and wide, in-and-out of state, but this theater is the only one where they recommend you to arrive 30 minutes early where you have to wait in a line right outside the theater door. You can tell they don’t know much about running a theater since the interior didn’t give the “theater” vibe which really just gave me the impression that they were trying to show off. They also cram in as many movie times as possible (made apparent by the waiting times). The only reason I give this a 2 star instead of a 1 star is because the seats were comfortable.

Laura Caravella

Great theater. So nice to have some other food options

Sindy Butkus

Friendly staff. Clean facility

Hobson Lopes

Comfortable seats. Great spot to catch a movie. Affordable, too!

Duane Smith

Best movie theater I've ever been too yet

S S

Lovely because it's new. Nice leather recliners, small theaters but you don't miss a huge screen. Nice that you forget you're in a crowd due to steep platforms and tall backs on chairs. Sells out all the time so buy ahead, or drive in from far away.

Anthony Palmisani

Best movie theater I have been to.

kit kat

I have never been to see the movies but I did go in and ask questions and their customer service was excellent

Katherine Sabia

Clean, pleasant staff, great seats, popcorn is really good and overall prices won't cost an arm and a leg

Trunks 420910

The best theater I've been in. Comfortable seating, plenty of leg room, clean restrooms .

Augustine Sanchez

So lucky to have this theater so close to home.

Laurie Brown

Beautiful theater. Clean, great staff, smoothies, and those seats! How can I ever go to another theater again?

Mary Dardis

What a neat little gem, this will definitely be my new movie going place. Reclinging heated seats, smoothie and frozen yogurt bar along with the traditional popcorn, candy and fountain drinks. Easy to get to and from.

Annonymous

This movie theatre is amazing! It was well worth the wait. The seats are fantastic as well! A nice leather too! Not to mention...The seats are reclining and heated! I am excited to see the building fully functional! Keep up the great work team!

Michael Macary

Great place. Very friendly staff. Great seats

Karen Lou Gudzinskas

The theater is excellent. I don't think I would go anywhere else. Not only are the price of tickets very affordable ($8.00 for adults at night time) but the seats r so comfortable. It's stadium seating leather seats but they are also recliners and heated seats if you want

Connie Scarfone

Reclining seats!

AWESOME THEATER!!! PRICES R FANATIC!! SEATS ARE COMFORTABLE!!! NO CRAZY PEOPLE JUMPING OFF THE WALLS.

Raymond Luhn

Modern cinema design with theaters of varying sizes outfitted with plush full-reclining seats. To-date 5 of 8 cinemas are in use. Open, high-ceiling entry area has box office to the right and concessions to the left. View to the rear of the building from the foyer overlooks undeveloped woodlands. Additional (still vacant) retail storefronts are contiguous with the theater and parking lot.

Henry Cadoff

Great seats and reasonable prices.

Brad Paynter

Super comfy chairs: it's a great place to see a movie.

ken oconnor

Clean, nice. Great comfortable chairs!

Michael Brewer

There seat was grade a '1', sound was intense,everything was clean,.. picture screen, could see,at all seating

Shaun Deacon

The theater is nice but the interior looks like an office building not a movie theater. The walls seem thin I could easily hear the movie playing next door. The seats are very comfortable and the staff is friendly.

Wendy Hart

Great place to go for relax and enjoy with friends and family

Jane Roz

Great thing to happen in our town!! It’s alwYs so clean in there! Love it. I bring my grandkids all the time

Ryan O'Toole

As expected and predicted, I fell asleep within 15 minutes of sitting in the heated, reclining seats. Mary Poppins has nothing on this theater. Great place and prices, too.

Julia A.

Good theater with reclining seats and plenty of leg room. Also, after the movie ends there is a group of employees that clean the theater up which keeps it clean.

Thomas Collentine

Nice lobby and selection of movies. Courteous staff. Wonderful seats.

Rachelle Brown

Favorite family spot for us in Southbury. We always dreaded heading to Danbury for a movie. Now it’s conveniently located down the road. Clean and friendly staff. Also ticket prices are just right and not over the top of the awesome seating and service you get.

James Krten

Awesome movie theater! Consists of an excellent sound system, large screens, great popcorn and refreshments, and of course awesome comfy seats. Not to also mention very friendly and dedicated staff! Definitely my theater of choice when I am in Connecticut. Highly recommend this place to people that live in the greater Southbury and Waterbury/Danbury area.

Tyler Madwid

Love this theater! Great small town feel, fantastic seating and concessions. I've stopped going to the theater in Danbury after this place opened.

Dale Hennessey

Nice, pretty clean. Good selection of movies. Staff could be friendlier. A little small, so order tickets online for good seats.

Andrea Lasser

I have been here twice. The theater itself is nice with comfy chairs that recline and are heated and it typically isn't that busy during the week. For $8 for a matinee it is worth the price. However last time I was there it seemed as if all the girl at the concession stand knew how to do was say "no". Unfortunately she couldn't get either butter machines for the popcorn to work. Then I asked if she could split a large popcorn into two smaller containers... The kids didn't want to share with me and she said no, that she had to charge me full price for each container of popcorn. I was a bit disappointed as I never have that issue at our local theater.

Sable Walton

I haven't been here before and it's disgusting!! I will never come here again!! So gross!

David & Bonnie Heald

Really nice theater and courteous staff. The only drawback for me, as a person with a gluten allergy (Celiac), is the popcorn has gluten on it. Kind of a bummer.

Nargles on the Brain

Large roomy seats that heat up and never busy. Love it

Giles Browett

Great local cinema couldn’t wish to take my children anywhere else my sons love the big comfy chairs

Bryant Howerton

Excellent theatre - the seats are just amazing - thank you Southbury!

Jennifer Gleason

Cool food choices in lobby. Not just the usual, though they have those too. Comfy seats.

Phillip DeMase

I'm surprised that they don't charge more for a ticket! They've got recliners, heated seats.. the works. These aren't just any seat. These are comfortable with serious leg room. You can't beat that price for under $10.

Azamahotep Z

Great theatre has a retro feel too

Tony Benedetti

Normally I enjoy coming here, but the noisy slob that just had to sit right next to me almost ruined it. Gobbling his popcorn with his mouth open and he actually took a sip of MY soda. After he was done pigging out, he fell asleep and started snoring. This was the worst experience I had here because people who have lousy theater etiquette just make my blood boil. Five stars for the theater itself, because it's awesome, one star for what I had to endure.

Morgan Chapin

Love this place. We plan on coming here for any movie we would like to see! They don't rip you off with pricing and the people are friendly and helpful. We will go out of our way everytime to see a movie here.

aaron swift

Nice movie theater with heated, reclining chairs! Free refill on the Couples Combo. Reasonably priced.

Dan Biron

Great venue, courteous staff and comfortable seats. Welcome addition to the community.

trish614c .

Love this theatre. Today we saw The Mule, good movie. I would have given the theatre 5 stars, but it was freezing in there. I heard several people complain about it on our way out.

Kareem Harper

This theater is pretty amazing. Recling leather heated seats & a Boost Juice shop makes this a pure solid win for your theater going experience. Audio setup is also solid. Highly recommended.

Caitlin McDonold

The seats are literally the best thing. I've never been so comfortable watching a movie in a theater before. I wish this place had opened years ago before I moved away - it's much more convenient than the cinema at Brass Mill. The prices are fantastic too!

Mikey Moker

Went here for the first time about a few weeks ago & I was absolutely astounded by the place, the snacks, heated seats & reclining & the price for the tickets, definitely a place I will be coming back to in the near future, even if it is a little out of the way distance, everything else makes up for it, would highly recommend!

Bp Perfido

Comfy seats....clean....not crowded

Kristina Maxwell

Very well-maintained and reasonable prices. $20 for tickets for my boyfriend and I on a busy Saturday night. Comfy feel and great recliner seats!

Mike Barry

Very comfortable reclining seats and reasonably priced tickets.

Steve C

This is one of those new theaters that is looking to sell the experience of watching a movie in a recliner. I am really into it. It's like watching a movie from the comfort of home, but with a gigantic screen. Pretty good prices considering how nice the theater itself is.

Miles Pratt

Recliner seats. Heated. Nice staff. It doesn't get any better than that.

Recliner seats. Heated. Nice staff. It doesn't get any better than that.

Brian Scovin

Riverview cinemas is outstanding a nice place see a moves

S Salvato

Went there for the 1st time to see Hellboy. The seats were great. Lounging and heated but not really heated, maybe lukewarm, but still really great. You can still smell the new carpet, not a big deal but if that kind of thing bothers you, may want to check it out before sitting through a whole movie. The staff was very nice.

Diane Sharley

Relaxing with large recliner seating .

Paul DiGiovanni

Awesome movie theater, won't go anywhere else

Subie_Guy23 .

Love this place comfortable chairs and great pricing my son and I go no where but here.

Marilyn C

My new FAVORITE place to watch movies. Clean, staff was so nice. Can't wait to take my husband & daughters

Sophia Shirley

Seats are comfortable no matter where you sit. This place is just the right size and is a welcomed addition to Southbury. The staff is always friendly.

Rain Miller

Recliner chair was very nice & comfortable..all brand new & the place are huge & clean

Kassidy Cameron

Nice staff, reclining/heated seats, usually uncrowded, and super cheap tickets. 10/10

Emily Merritt

This theater is outstanding. I'm a little afraid to give a great review because I believe it's a hidden gem!! The staff is friendly. The ticket prices are great and they have reclining super comfy chairs!!! Perfect all around!!

James Jones

Love this place. Great local place and the seats are the best!!!

Susan Wichrowski

Clean and love the cafe that makes it different. Not only has reclining seats but heated. Impressed with the cinema. The only negative is that the young staff had no customer service skills. They pretty much ignored everyone walking around. However because of the rest of the atmosphere I would return. Great change from the noisy mall setting and prices are fair.

Joe Reed

Convenient access for Woodburyians. Current movies shown. Comfortable, reclining seats. Don't fall asleep. You're not overwhelmed with coming attractions. There is a senior discount.

Carman Dragone

We just got back from the new movie theater, WOW! Great job guys, can't wait until this whole complex is open with all the retail space filled. You can really get a sense of what it's going to be like when it's done. They announced they were only half open but it was still a great experience. GREAT addition to the town.

Amanda Sutor

This place was amazing! It was so clean, the seats were acutal recliners with heated seats. It's new, just built. There were no crying children or people screaming/ hooting/ hollering during the movie. The popcorn was buttered all the way through, meaning they didn't just dump butter over the top. And the employees were lovely.

Bfb Everything

I saw Avengers Endgame here and it was really good. The theater is a little small and there are no assigned seats so I ended up in the front. Other than that it was very good.

Anita Holtz

After years of far-away traveling to Bridgeport or Danbury to see a current movie, it's a joy to have a theater that's closer to my hometown. And, what a theater! Great seating, smaller auditoriums for a "home-theater" feel, great concession choices, and reasonable matinee prices! Cinema heaven!

Rodney Smith

Fantastic place to see a movie. Only minor gripe would be recycling locations. Seating is great, so is sound and lighting.

Sarah Becker

Nice evening out! Comfortable

Peter Hill

Great theater. Clean and friendly staff

Kadae Reid

It's great. The recliner seats are the best and the theater is nice and clean

Jeme Design

This place has gone downhill really quickly. The women's restroom was disgusting. Two stalls were out of order, and the whole place smelled like a port-a-potty (or worse). Broken equipment, greasy fingerprints all over doors. Meanwhile staff are sitting or standing around doing nothing. The movie started late because "something" was broken. It was fixed, but I'm pretty sure the HVAC system was broken too, because the theater was very stuffy even though there were only a dozen people in there. We asked a staff member if the trash was recyclables, and she didn't know. Even though this theater is most convenient and the seats are comfortable, I'll be going somewhere else next time.

DAVID BRAI

Great theater! Comfortable seating, clean, reasonable price. I drive up from Seymour to enjoy movies at Riverview

Joshua Verner

Very nicely priced, comfortable seating, unique loby concessions. A bit small. Movies start on time, trailers play before showtime

tanya santana

Absolutely love the fact they have a security guard with a weapon made me feel safe. Kudos! The place was clean and staff was courteous.

Lisa Sampson

Love the reclining, heated seats in this Movie theater. And they have great refreshments. A smoothie bar and a coffee bar with fresh baked goodies.

Johnnie

Love having this place so close to home!

Bob Cristadoro

Clean, comfortable and affordable. It's about time! Thank you Siuthbury!!

johnny g

Best show in town...

Kellie Pease

The bathrooms are already falling apart and always look filthy. The theaters are too bright during the movie, especially near the aisles. The parking lot is too small for all the businesses if you go on a weekend evening. We saw a popular movie on the second night and the sound cut in and out during the entire movie. We go because it's close and comfortable but for a brand new theater, it should not be what it is.

Jesse Hurlburt

Seats and comfortable and heated. Staff is friendly. Small but great theater.

Rich Severini

1st time here. Very comfortable. Nice size,but will get sold out quickly. Nice sound in theatre. Not thrilled that a few 1:00 pm showing doesn't start at 1:00 pm. If you can't begin on time, then maybe you should re-configure your times. We will try to come here again as it is a nice place. Hopefully it will be a better experience next time.

Janisty Turturici

beautiful cinemas, extremely comfortable seats so worth the drive.

Jason Ferraro

Friendly and polite staff. Theater, lobby and bathrooms, all very clean. Ticket prices were excellent. Can't wait to go back again!

Tommy Gordineer

Nice new place. Bigger than a local theater but smaller than the Loews chain. Make sure you arrive early because seating gets filled quickly.

Tony Coppola

Good place to see a movie. Cannot reserve seats though.

Ed Riley

Great place to see a movie. Nice recliners. Romantic. Great smoothie place inside lobby.

Eddie Santiago

Excellent service... Great sound and reclining seats

Jim Tomassetti

Riverview a great Theater. Reclining seat's very Clean!

ObviousTrollFrom2007

Great food, great movies, and great smoothies! Even though it's smaller than most theaters, they make it up by adding a smoothie shop, an Italian ice cart, and magic shows! Just went to see Ready Player One today, and it was a blast! Highly recommend going here!

Riverview a great Theater. Reclining seat's very Clean!

Dianne Disston

Great theater. Clean. Every seat is a recliner with a heater if needed! Reasonable ticket prices. Along with snacks you expect at the movies there are also very interesting additional food and beverage choices.

Lauren P

Convenient to have a movie theater in southbury, staff is friendly and it's always clean. Powered reclining movie seats are great, and have a heated seat option. My only disappointment is their bathrooms, which are totally black and have exposed pipes. This is a brand new theater, and I think it could have been nicer. But if you don't care, you're gonna love it.

Kevin Smolkis

The seats recline and are real nice.

mad move INC

Wow it was beautiful there nice place for family

Aleen Kirmani

This is a great theater! We just moved into a near by town and near had gone to the movies like this. The chairs reclined and had seat warmers. The screens were really big and the movies didn’t have many preview trailers ( which we really loved).

bob smith

First time there very impressed.All recliner seats with heat.Thearter itself still new.One thing that is nice they have railings going up the aisle on both sides and wide aisle where the seats are.

Laura LeHay

Best theater! Comfy seats, reserved seating, good sound.

Tbone Hardisty

Rude workers at cashier but everyone else is pretty cool

Candy Carreiro

Very comfortable. Perfect volume

Stephen Young

Great addition to Southbury. Heated reclining seats and popcorn made fresh. Always clean and enjoyable.

kenneth knapp

Loved the heated and reclining seating and theater set up. Would have been 5 stars except for the volume of the audio was really loud, Like uncomfortably loud. I maybe sensitive to it but my daughter said it was loud too.

Jose Correa

Very clean and comfy!!

Carrie Scott

Love having cinemas so close. Also enjoy a healthy choice for treats before the movie.

Lazza Schumer

I would rather not tell you how great this place is so to keep it a secret but Google asked me. Comfy cozy huge leather reclining easy chairs. Need I say more. So nice.

Joan Tomlinson

Bring my three grandsons there as often as I can

Rick Porcelain

Really terrible bowling alley. Not the worst I’ve ever seen, but it’s up there. Their lanes are dirty, their pins are concrete, and you have to bring your own bowling ball, like what? Five stars.

Hennalyne Sedigh

One of the best movie theaters I’ve ever been in. Heated reclining seats. Best ticket prices.

Anthony Kaminski

Hands down the best movie theater I've ever been to. The place was clean the prices were fantastic in the staff couldn't have been better!

Bruce Adams

A very nice multiplex with several movie theaters featuring stadium seating with luxury seating that reclines and are heated. When you enter the building, the ticket counter is to your right, a snack counter tis to the left. Ticket takers are straight ahead along with the theaters in the left and right behind them.You cab buy your tickets on line but cannot pick your seats on line.

What a wonderful experience I had today. I took my daughter to a celebratory movie for the last day of school and her bday! We were met by a man behind the counter who talked to my daughter very kindly and allowed her to pick a candy...for free. What a sweet gesture. We enjoyed our movies In comfort and she enjoyed her candy. Everyone was very friendly. We will be back again. Really a great experience.

I’m a senior citizen and I used my aarp card to get mini kit kats for my husband, but he only likes the ones from that Chance the Rapper commercial that snap like that Thanos fella to kill all those Revengers. When I asked for those ones the young lady at the counter said those don’t exist. Why, it broke my husbands heart to hear that.

Joane Talcott

Very clean, love the reclining seats.

Александр Александров

Very comfortable cinema theater, Avangers Endgame was amazing.

Jake Creiner

False showing times on there own website. Don't trust the show times. Multiple bad experiences.

Barbara Wilson

I haven't been here since it opened and boy what a difference. The place is a mess. The hallways we're dirty, the bathrooms we're dirty, and theater was dirty. It's like they have no cleaning staff. Seats were comfortable. Sound and visuals we're good.

Stephanie Biello

Great theater. Seats were super comfy. Staff was extremely nice, accommodating and considerate. The movie was close to selling out and they warned us we might have to sit in the front row which was really nice of them to do, it was much appreciated. I feel like most theaters wouldn't bother to do that. Highly recommend this theater and would totally go again.

TESOL Training International Cebu

Comfy place. I would love to go back there again on our next vacation.

Gregg Lutz

Great place to watch a movie the seats are incredibly comfortable

Charles Kirk

Very nice theater with super comfy seats. Large seating limits theater capacity though so might be good to get to the more popular new releases earlier to ensure you get a seat/ticket.

Evan Seitz

Very nice and modern theater. Great place to catch a movie.

Jennifer Scungio

Best theater to see a movie. Love the seats!

Zach Cole

Been here several times now, and I've been impressed each time. The staff is friendly, the prices are reasonable, the picture/sound quality is superb, and the seats are great! The cleanliness is huge, too. Haven't experienced a single sticky floor or dirty seat.

Andrew Goodman

Great theater. Nice screens and comfy chairs.

Barbara Anzellotti

Love the recliners! Great idea! Not far from my house. Really enjoyed the movie that was playing.

Jodie Keenan

Super comfortable seating, smoothie bar and cafe in the lobby in addition to traditional concession. Try to show up a bit early, though! It is a smaller theater and not getting great seating or having a show sold out are risks of cutting it too close.

James Redway

This place is nice and does not get as crowded as normal movie theaters. It is a little small for my liking and they had sound issues at one of my showings. Make sure you reserve tickets online for popular movies. I wish they had assigned seating so I don't have to show up an hour before the movie. They also have the recliner seating.
