Pittsford Cinema was a commercial movie theater in Pittsford, located across the plaza from the Super Wegmans in Pittsford Plaza. This 9-screen complex operated by Zurich Cinemas is the only suburban theater in Rochester that consistently showed one or two independent features every week. Student discounts and matinee pricing were available.

2006-09-29 05:00:20 The most comfortable chairs I've ever sat on in a movie theater. —TravisOwens
2006-09-29 09:22:42 Pittsford Cinema offers the only student discount I know of at a city movie theatre. —EllenKelsey
2006-10-03 10:22:14 FYI, the Little offers student discounts through memberships- $35 gets you 12 free passes, plus $5 admission anytime for a year. That said, the Pittsford Cinema is a great theater. —JackCalcines
2007-03-31 23:00:47 Because this isn't owned by Regal or another major chain, the concession prices are better than normal cinemas, and they have candy you have a harder time getting at a cinema (ex: Reece's Peanut Butter cups and real Twizzlers) plus the seats recline somewhat, very comfortable. —TravisOwens
2007-04-01 07:37:44 I have to disagree with the comments here. The theater seems to be perpetually flooded by high school students who lack complete respect for fellow patrons — they talk loudly during shows, answer cell phones, and throw their food all over the place. I expect this at Movies 10, but not when I pay $7. FYI, the Cinema also offers discounts for students at $3, concessions are cheaper, and if you can manage to wait a few weeks any movie worth seeing at Pittsford is either already at the Little or will be at the Cinema soon. —RochesterGuy
2007-05-06 10:59:50 I should append my comment to say that if friends demand seeing a first-run hollywood film, I would still always prefer to go to Pittsford over the chain multiplexes. —RochesterGuy
2007-10-29 23:16:34 It seems Pittsford has decided to enter into direct competition with The Little. While I understand their right to do this, I can't help but wonder what this has done to The Little's bottom line. I'd hate to see The Little's business suffer because people would rather go to some vanilla strip mall discount theatre to see indie and arthouse films rather than experience the ambiance and atmosphere of The Little. Supporting Rochester and ensuring the viability of our city includes making choices to patronize downtown businesses! —LilacHighland
2007-10-30 15:28:33 I go here every so often. One of the houses smells like putrid mold. Another one has busted speakers, it's one of the smaller houses...I think the 2nd one to your left when you walk in. But yes, if you get the "stadium seating"...those seats ROCK. And they have Pepsi products. I love me some cherry Pepsi.
The AMC in Webster has a student discount as well. —MarcVera
2008-01-02 23:37:42 Everytime I've been here the floors have been sticky and I wouldn't want to put my head back on the seat from fear of picking up some communicable disease. No thank you. For mainstream fare, go to one of the chains...for arthouse and indie head to the The Little. Bottom line? Skip this one. —RochesterRed
2009-01-26 21:27:52 I usually go here instead of The Little because it's closer to my house. I have no idea where people are finding mold or dirt at this theater... it's one of the cleanest I've been to! The parking here, while not great sometimes, is also more plentiful than at The Little. I'm glad we have more than ONE theater in Rochester that shows indie/arthouse films. There is certainly room for two (or more) and this is a good theater. —MariahBetz
2009-09-25 11:36:50 When the sad day comes that The Little finally closes its doors (as it nearly did a decade ago) I hope that people going to see films here due to "convenience" still feel alright about themselves. See: Midtown Mall, Edwards, Top of the Plaza, Auditorium Theatre, etc. —RochesterGuy
2010-04-10 18:50:37 Used to be a General Cinema theatre. Pretty decent for an independent outfit. Tough if the Little can't make it. The original owners couldn't make it so they turned to grant money and made the place a charitable org. Sweet deal.
Hope other theatres jump on the indie and foreign films. Overpriced mediocre cheesecake isn't why I go to the movies. —rilke
2010-07-25 09:47:24 On the night of July 24, 2010, around 9:50 PM, a power event (either surge or loss of power followed by unconditioned power return) caused the theaters to lose power and interrupt showings. Lights could be seen sporadically struggling to come back on. Some patrons noted that other parts of the plaza had lost power, but came back to life. Around 10:10 PM, the general evacuation alarm was given within the theater, and patrons began to exit. Pittsford Fire Department arrived on scene, and put at least one vent team on the roof. A cautionary clear alarm was given shortly thereafter. Coldstone employees could be seen still in their storefront closing for the evening even after the PFD were on scene. —JeremyFelt
2011-12-18 17:56:06 They have $1 popcorn on wednesdays. so i spend just $10.50 for a ticket, popcorn and an iced at the cost of one movie ticket at regal. The seats are really comfortable, theater is clean for the most part (can't say the bathroom are any different to other theaters). You'll see old people there in the afternoon, and students in the evenings. Rite aid is right there if you wanna stop for some candy beforehand. parking is always cumbersome. —heyhowareyou
