Great theatre

Alan Haarstad

A LOT of time and money has gone into the change from Cinema 5 to 8. I am very impressed by the result. The theater that I experienced had wonderful stadium seating. No blocked vision at all! The new ticket and concession area is great. The staff has always been very friendly and helpful.

carl petersen

Great theater with suround sound and comfy chairs.

Gabriel Anderson

The theatre was large and the staff was kind. The seats were comfortable for a 2 hour movie. If you haven't seen Hitmans Bodyguard you should!

Love the reclining seats!


I'm a big movie-goer and I have nothing bad to say about the Brookings Cinema. It's clean, good snacks, good seating, good movies. They always have all of the newest movies and even sometimes showings that aren't nation-wide blockbusters. They recently were showing a movie made by a South Dakotan that I never thought I'd get the chance to see in theaters, so I was really excited to go, and thankful that they offered it.

Meowing Peeps

They are so nice and helpful!!

Jeff Ladegaard

First time I've been to the theater since the remodel. Very nicely done. Plenty of space to stretch out and enjoy a good movie like Deadpool 2.

The Popcorn is better than any Sioux Falls theater. I love having an updated theater within a 15 minute drive. They are very nice and it's a very clean theater.

Gabby Thooft

Great theater spaces and large variety at the concessions

Dinesh Shrestha

You won’t be disappointed being here. Great cinema for a small town like Brookings. They screen new releases every week. The popcorns are great. The seats are okay. Restrooms are clean and great. Parking lot is huge. The customer service is great. The staffs are friendly and helpful. You have a great choice of movies here. They also host your birthdays and parties.

Justin Borns

Good stuff

Justin Campbell

Nice theater have had good and bad experiences this one was a good one though.

DX Mage

The food and drink is expensive even by theater rates. That and the bathrooms is all that keep it from 5 star. Screen and sound quality is great. Ticket price is average. But the price of the food and drink is insane and the bathrooms need to be gutted redone and the capacity upped big time.

Noelle Morford

Love the improvements to the theatre - and love $5 all ticket Tuesdays! We're lucky to have such a nice theatre in Brookings!

Janet Mendel

Very relaxing and very nice movie theater.

Tracy Monteith

The new theater is sweet

Jared Baszler

This is a great theatre for a smaller sized town. Their recent expansion and remodel is awesome. They do all the little things right and while I don't go there often, when I do go I always come away impressed.

Janis Bentzen

Great popcorn, clean, the sound was set just right

Penny Eliason

Newly remodeled, stadium seating and the best popcorn!

Kristi Barz Mashek

Awesome movies brought here, comfortable seats and great stereo system

Michael Luke

Literally thought I was walking into a 5 star restaurant right away. Super fancy looking. Very clean. The people that were helping me were very nice. The person taking my ticked even informed me that there wasn't something at the end of the credits, so I don't have to wait the extra 10 minutes for nothing. Even the bathrooms were nice. From my experience, I enjoy this place just as much as theaters in bigger cities. Well deserved 5/5 and will probably go again when I am in town.

Taylor Schulte

Great date night on Tuesdays because of the 5 dollar movie tickets!

Eli Brandt

Very nice place to watch a move, but the layout is a little confusing, sometimes you may go... why the heck did they do this? Other than that this is a great place to watch a movie.

Ray Whiddon

Nice little theater. Going to see IT chapter 2 tomorrow


Great locally run theater. Always kept clean, even between shows. Staff are courteous and helpful. One of my favorite theaters. Love $5 Tuesdays. Thank you for such a wonderful experience, Brookings Cinema 8!


A comfortable, clean theater experience every time. Never been let down, especially since the expansion!


Great setting compared to the limited space available there.. Sound quality is great than most other big theaters

We held a birthday party here and loved it! They have a party room for us to celebrate in just prior to a show. Kids got a snack pack of popcoon, candy, and a drink for the show. Rich was our staff member who help prep the snacks. Brought them on a cart to our reserved seats and helped us get settle in. Very affordable compared to other options and the kids loved it!

Tina Boldt Belden

Kendra Intermill

Fun place, clean, nice staff.

Tajbir Raihan

Loved it. Tuesday is only 5$

Brandon Laney

This theatre was recently upgraded and expanded. It has 8 different theatres to choose from, so there's always a very good variety of movies "now playing". The seats are very comfortable, and are elevated nicely from front to back so you will not have to stare at the back of somebody's head throughout the feature. Tickets are reasonably priced (especially if you catch a matinee), however the concessions are rather expensive (yet good!). The theatre staff have been very warm and friendly each time I have visited. One of the best "small town" movie theatres I have ever been to. Great job to all involved!

Amy Sylvestre

Fantastic theater. The popcorn seasoning is the best!!!

Joshua Stafford

An outstanding theater for a small town. Recent upgrades, comfortable modern seating, new food items, and more upgrades and offerings in the works. 2- and 3D shows, reasonably priced shows and matinee specials that are a good value. I loving having them as a part of our community. Only wish is they would host more esoteric or Indie films, but I understand those may cost more than they bring in.

Kalynn Slabaugh

Every time I’ve come into the theater, I’ve had excellent service and the renovations on the building make going to the movies a wonderful experience. Tonight, I came in to see Mama Mia and Samantha was so helpful at the counter! Very kind service and was able to explain all of the deals to us! Thank you! :)

Lynelle Hagedorn

Great Movie experience! Love the extra space in between rows of seats!

Great place, clean, fun movie, Dragon

Brock Nugteren

This is a very clean modern movie theater. When I recently visited this movie theater I was treated and treated very kindly by the manager. All I can say is he must be doing something right as all of the staff was very attentive, kind and friendly. Prices are to be expected like most movie theaters. Popcorn was delicious very wide variety of snacks, but what put them about other theaters is the fact they sell mini donuts. This business is very clean(my feet never stuck to the floor anywhere) and is a great movie theater. One of the best movie theater experiences I have had in a long time.

Randy Sutton

Nice clean place friendly staff

Molly Kass

I haven't been here in a while and was surprised to see the fully upgraded. An amazing set up. Clean, amazing prices, very friendly staff. Paid for two movies (4 tickets between the wife and i), a large popcorn and 2 pops and paid less than a single movie viewing in the Aberdeen theater.
