REVIEWS OF Essex Shoppes & Cinema IN Vermont

George Elliott

My favorite theater, I love the seats, especially the T-Rex!

Pope Cannabis Sativa THC TCHC

Always the best Dr's. Michel&Co are 100% best vet we've ever experienced

Mara S.

One of the best movie theaters in the area.

Matt Gustafson

Great cinema. Expensive, like most are. But good quality in return.


It was amazing so many cool things to do

James Martineau

Great place for a movie and refreshments!

Steve Oesterle

Nice little place to shop.

Shawn Lane

Great place to watch a movie and love that they always play Christian films when they come out.

Aleksandr Kragh

We occasionally shop here, but we do come here for the theater. The movie theater is family friendly with great seats. The difficulty is that parking for later afternoon or evening shows can be rough given that the cinema shares venue space with music acts neext door, as well as with small dining.

Aaron G

Lots of positive changes happening. Mad taco and event spaces.

Heidi Reposa

Nice layout of stores and the movies too. McDonald's right there too.

m Flou

The Essex outlet is going down many stores are out of business....

Scott Robare

Nice place to shop but needs more variety. Clothing and upscale shops are all well and good but a little pricy for middle income people.


Great movie theater located in center if Essex... Great location with multiple restaurants nearby.

Gary Pasquale

Went and seen the Joker at t-rex very loud but its was very nice seats

Kate Sellers

It is a clean and nice place to watch a movie in Vermont.

Darwin Perrier

Love it here, good deals

Mircea Margina

Poorly outlets. Half of these stores are closed.

Jude Spencer

Good theater good shops

Alexandra Coutlee

Great that they have a Van Heusen

Dustin Charland

Little bit of everything here and a very nice area, very safe and some fun/quality stuff. But there ate stores that are leaving the outlets not sure why. Highly recommended Mimmos restaurant! And theater is pretty good too, no complaints!

Paul Link

It's an outlet mall with a fairly nice movie theater. The cinema has a private screening theater with a bar/lounge attached and a large format screen that they call the T-Rex which has larger more comfortable seating. The outlet mall is fairly standard, though there is a good bookstore and a good toy/hobby shop that I recommend.

Chris Taylor

I shop at Hannaford's at least once a week. At least one time per visit, I ask a store employee where I can find something. They are always willing to help me. I appreciate the help. About 2 weeks ago, on a Saturday, the store was busier than I've ever seen any grocery store. I was impressed. Nobody was screaming or anything. Everyone was as calm as they could be. When it happens again, I'll give you 5 Stars!

Mohammad Chabti

Not so many options. Not a real Shopping Outlet.


Well, outlet stores are neat, but they are missing more of the pedestrian experience. Need more outdoor walking, eating, no driving access areas. Would be really neat to see a family fun center, rock climbing, mini golf etc. But, good deals overall.

Ryan Keighley

Cinema: excellent. Best theater in the area. Comfy seats and decent prices. The Shoppes: eh, the days of this being an outlet seem to be gone. The theater keeps trying to revitalize the area but I feel it's going to take a lot more than mad taco to do that.

Lissa S

Okay variety if outlets. Some of them are higher end and overpriced. Sidewalks and exteriors are getting run down.


Limited shops and types of shops.

Mark Bergin

The newly renovated Hannaford's is great!

Suzanne Blanchard

Shopping center with some useful places - grocery stores, hardware store, toy store, plus restaurants and movie theater with the state's only LFT/HFT + surround sound theater.

Nakita Richards

The outlet mall had some great stores with seductive sale prices going on. Couldn't not spend money here. I didnt check out the cinema so cant comment on it.

T. M.

Great team and amazing facility!

Sandy VT

A nice mix of stores. The new Hannaford is wonderful.


My go to spot for movies. Love the Trex theater. And the reward card is pretty sick too

Kathy Carroll-Rodgers

The theater seats were very comfortable!

Deedra Irwin

Nice movie theater. Nothing special.

Jelly Beans

It's a good theatre

dolores Reinecke

Found just what we were looking for

Andre Menes

It's more like a ghost town mall

Andrea Hossley

I love having shopping options in Essex Town and utilize all of the stores but wish there were more.

Natalya Suvorova

I really like this place. All little outlets and contemporary cinema theatre.

Jason Colby

Great collection of small shops!

Marty Gleason

The outlets come and (more so lately) go, but that was never my thing. I go for Turner Toys and Hobbies, Sweet Clover Market, Hannaford supermarket, Ace Hardware and Sukho Thai restaurant.


Got some golf and dress shirts for a steal!!

Alex Holcomb

Plenty of free parking with a nice mix of local stores as well as grocery and movie options.

Charles Borchers

Needs reinvigorating. Cinema poorly organized for big crowds. Need separate lines for patrons that already have tickets.

Juliette Falls

Great seats and greater movie selections

XB-70valk YT

Good place to many different types of shopping or catch a movie

Vincent Meisinger

Great atmosphere. I felt like I was walking through downtown anywhere. Well lit for night shopping, outdoor speakers throughout complex with relaxing music playing.

N Kelley Barrows-jipson

Old Town building at it's best

John Boquet

Best place to see movies in the area!

Scott Hafner

There really needs to be more variety but there are a few cool places, including the artisan bakery which has some great treats. The rewards card is pretty good there as well.

Casey Cleary

Cinema is great but most shops are gone and the few remaining are not even close to outlet stores. If you are looking for good deal, look elsewhere

Naomi Flemings

It was easy to get around.

Michele Ploof

Best kitchen gadget store in the shoppes

Carol DelGaudio

Outlet shopping, movie theater, restaurants, and a grocery store

Carter Sergeant

It's a nice place

jennifer killgren

Perfect place to bring the whole family!

Jacqueline Robinson

79 bucks for 1 tie!!!! I just couldn't do it

Jeffrey Raymon

Restaurants here are great. We go to Suhko Thai, which i think is one of the BEST Thai places ever. the owner is extremely friendly, ( plus we know him personally, I would eat there every day if i could. food is extremely tastey, fresh, they give you just enough. Their Massiman is the BEST!. Generous portions, they are more than helpful when you want your food prepared a certain way. Always busy, every table is usually full. Take out service is excellent. We try to go at least once or twice every other week. my parents drive an hour and a half just to come eat here. Ample parking, Great, great food.

Daniel Comstock

Trex theater is great!

Shane Hunter

Love the Christopher banks outlet!! Staff are slways so kind and helpful ....beautiful and unique clothing

james liles

Went to the movies nice place

Matthew McClintock

Best movie theater in the area!

Gary Devoid

We visit essex shopping center at least 2. Times or more a month, live tge dollar store plus we do most of our shopping at price chopper plus we saw our first movue a few months ago too

Hallie Mcevoy

Great variety of stores!

John Guillaume

Nice theater, conscessions are reasonably priced

Rick Valenta

Sad that Ralph Lauren left, but at least there is still Brooks Brothers, Bass, and a few other good ones. There is a good movie theater at this location as well known as "The T Rex."

Cynthia Feltch

Shopping and dining choices are varied. I miss the florist.

Jim Poulin

Saw a great movie

Renee Barrios

Not amazing, but a nice theater. The t-rex theater is a good experience. Clean with comfortable seats. 4 stars due to the fact that the lobby is small and it is hard to navigate when its busy.

Ed Shannon

The kitchen store has a bunch of neat gadgets !

Lori Fetters

Good shop there, but a lot of empty shops which is sad to see.

Devin G

Go watch movies here. They usually get the 501st for star wars premiers so that's always fun especially for kids, big or small. Comfortable seating and good sized theaters. This is my preferred theater if I'm given a choice. Pretty good options for snacks too. I'm a twizzlers fan myself.

Jason Us

The movie actually died while we were in it. They refunded the ticket price, but not the online fee we paid for the tickets. The manager was snooty about it and our Christmas outing was ruined. How about some Xmas spirit?

Preston Leigh

Has the look and feel of an outlet center which won't be around much longer.

Nathan Johnston

Decent shopping, not enough parking on a Saturday or Sunday

John Jerome

While the shops aren't that great, the theatre itself is probably the best in the state. Especially the T-rex theatre! Big comfy seats!

Din Husky

Great variety of shops and items, not too sprawled out, and quite walkable

Brenda Mossey

Could use some more stores and different kinds of things put in but from what I've seen isn't to bad.

Jeremy Parnapy

Didn't visit much. Hannaford and Turner's toys and hobbies. Both are great stores. Seems like alot of shopping in the area.

Jason LaFrance

Place needs something to draw people in. Trying with those Thursday night taps, trucks and tunes but needs more

Martin Low

It was ok for those interested in cheap-ish shopping. The place is pretty run down, with empty stores and deteriorating walkways along with lots of low-end outlets. It does have a Brooks Bros store, though for anything of recent vintage the prices are the same as in NYC. There’s a pretty good Bass outlet but the rest of the stores are humdrum. Except the Jockey store, if you need undies. It’s a declining asset, needing a significant update and some more upscale vendors. By why wd they bother, when their market is on-line?

Teresa Rowell

Great deal here

Andrew Boomhower

Went to see Avengers End Game. The theater was clean, well appointed and comfortable. The reason I gave it only 4 stars was due to the cost of everything. We paid almost $14 for 2 drinks and a med popcorn... It's unfortunate that they feel the need to gouge customers when tickets are already expensive.

Thierry Dillard

A great discount outlet .... dying ... needs reviving with proper urban planning.

William Bezio

A dying shopping center. It's going to be turned into a condo development within the next 5 year's anyways.

Wayne Newton

Faded from its glory years, there are nevertheless still some great shops with deeply discounted prices. Kudos to Bass, for one. Wonderful staff in each shop.

Shaun Varney

A nice shopping area with a little for everyone, well worth your time. It is a tad pedestrian unfriendly and has a couple too many specialist clothes stores to earn all 5 stars.

Susan Taft-Belval

Love Body let Bronze

Angie m. Buchanan

Very fun an friendly Ok prices an feel safe there

Robert Maritano

Easy access.

lester suarez

Movies and great tacos, nothing wrong with that!

Benjamin BO

Super nice cinema with great managers/ ownership

Cameron Erno

Great variety of shops for all sorts of needs

Jackie Lincoln

Love the Kitchen, Etc store!

Lil Melatonin

It's sad to see that when I used to come here the theater was stacked. But I came here a week ago to watch hotel transylvania 3 and there was me and a friend and 3 other people in the entire theater. But it's good bc then I had leg space and room to stretch. I hope that one day there is more people.

Chris Mather

Best theater in the state, bar none. The screens are huge, especially the T-Rex and Theater 1, the place is always spotless, and they go above and beyond for big premiers.

Angela Trapani

Easy access, ample parking, always evolving quality choices... an asset in our community

Olson Butterfield

First time back in years, am impressed with all the remodeling. Cheaper than Majestic 10, nice seating, clean. Sound system is a superior experience. Am looking forward to a 3D T-Rex movie in the future.

Gregory Hogan

Nice to have close, quality stores. Sweet Clover Market is a gem. Phoenix Books is an amazing, real bookstore.


When you enter at first it seems somewhat small, but you'll come to find that they have large theatres with good seats, especially their "T-Rex" theatre, which is extra-large and has higher quality seats.

Tammy Schmidt

It would be a great mall if more of the stores were open. It looks like many of the stores were out of business. The stores we visited were clean and the staff was friendly.

Nicole Gibson

My favorite theater in Vt & I love their rewards card!!

Kathleen James

Great service, great concessions and very clean. The staff is attentive and I love that they feature weekly sensory sensitive showings for families. Highly recommend!

Andrew Swift

The largest movie screen in the Burlington area is in Essex. This is a great theater to travel to for big movie premieres. The staff appears to enjoy event movies and host themed premiere weekends. We've enjoyed see some Summer blockbusters open at this theater. Prices are reasonable and this theater rarely sells out -- even for BIG movies. Online to let's see easy. Nice staff and clean environment. Plus, local mall has good options and shopping. Highly recommended!

Elaine Hsu

Not bad.

Jordan Wood

Fun movie

Chris Brunell

Was there just the other day and got what was needed

Michael Sweeney

Ace hardware, movie theater, Famous Footware and Hannafords.

Missy Eusebio

I enjoy going to this theater. Its clean, and comfortable.

Nice shops. A few great restaurants. Movie theater. Enough to keep you busy or get some outlet shopping done.

Jason Coolidge

Very clean theater.. Always have a great time, never a bad experience.

david babcock

Excellent Cinema! Great seating with properly adjusted sound and image for the size of the theatre. possibly the most comfortable movie-night-out ever.

Pathin Blushweaver

5 stars for some excellent businesses. Bass outlet. Sweet Clover. Essex Cinemas. All fantastic.

Dottievalrie Colbert

Good service.

Burns Dartt

They have a few great shops and one of the best movie screens in the state

Jocelyne Cacciatore

As Montreal's We've been going there for years. We hadn't been in VT in the last year and we were so surprised to see how many stores had closed during our trip there this week. Good place for children clothing, Lane Bryant and van Heusen. That's it. Hopefully more store will open a sports clothing store.

Justin Charbonneau

Ok but upset wen Under Armor outlet left. I dont shop there any longer. Only Theater visits

Tim Hopkin

Needs more shopping places

Travis Garrett

My favorite theatre by far. They have powdered cheese for the popcorn, and i love seeing movies in the t-rex theatre. The most comfortable seats around

Carmelle D

I can spend almost a day at the shops in Essex center.. there are a lot of outlets then grab some lunch at the Thai restaurant. Then even a movie... I call that a nice day!

Devin Gallagher

Lower the rent on this abysmal ghost mall! I charge my EV here because they have a Level 3 DC fast charger. But I just sit in my car. There's nothing to buy. Also, the design of the mall itself is ludicrous. Getting in and out is a nightmare, especially next to CVS. Avoid this place at all costs.

Max Chau

A small outlet store. Very small, interesting to see but might be better to go to a premium outlet

Xena Warrior

Horrible place to shop . terrible driving conditions in the lot.

Craig Pellerin

The TRex theatre The best around. Shops are great

Crystal Mccray

Great shopping experience, weather could of been a lill warmer

Derek Sweeney

The best theatre in the state!

Neil Marriott

I love the Essex Shoppes and Cinema, best known as the Essex Outlets, here to us Vermonters.. We don't have any outlet stores here in Vermont so it's good to have at least one... I wish there were more stores that would stay filled more often in this outlet but that's corporate America for you... come here, you'll like it, there's a lot of good shopping, some decent food, and the cinema is flippin awesome with a great 3D screen...

Jessica Church

Love this outlet


Lots of places you may want to visit. However, no auto repair service in the entire complex and much needed given the deplorable conditions of roads/ sidewalks and parking with caution. All store owners agree complex ownership/maintenance is a joke.

michelly zavala

The cinema itself is great. They could use some upgrading though, like recliners! But otherwise, the staff are great and friendly. We were new to the area and they made us feel welcomed. The prices and food are great as well.

Julie Ruby

Love seeing movies here and love their rewards program!!

Samantha Rush

They have comfortable seating and wonderful 3d movies

Cindy Galeote

A lot of vacant stores but found some sales

Timothy Olver

This place is a ghost town, Berdas is great though.

Albie Frye

Ace Hardware is ok

Edward Salls

Ace hardware for paint

Scott Hall

Good place

Ron Monroe

Great little shopping plaza.

Chris Brynga

Tons of parking and nice and quiet. The outlets are not the biggest outlet complex but it has most of the big names there. The cinema is also a nice addition to have there.

Thomas Nichols

All the shops are dead pretty much. Only thing I come here for is the amazing movie theater and the amazing oriental wok take-out food.

Brent Godin

A great cinema offering 3d and great sound.

Brenda Wood

Lots of shops, and great movie theatre

Chrisms Trees-Neuberger

Friendly movie theatre...lots of choices...very comfortable.

Joshua St Hilaire

This is a really a poor excuse for an outlet center. The new Hanny's remodel is great and the Cinema is alright, but don't waste your time coming over to shop for anything other than baby/toddler clothes.

Colin Koponen-Robotham

Best movie theater in the area; good selection of movies, comfortable seats, friendly staff, and nice perks like a reward card and summer blockbuster promotions.

Al Getler

This theater is our family's go-to theater. When there is a special movie we want to see, we often buy our tickets in advance. The process to pick them up is easy, the snacks are served quickly by the friendly staff and we enjoy the show. We are credit watchers (people work hard to make films), so we often encounter the staff cleaning the theater. They always thank us for coming. The owners often have blood drives and that means a lot to me, a donor.

Samuel Beneche

Small simple theater

Santha Dahlin

The shops are great. Easy to find a variety of things in one spot. In need of a face lift though.
