About Essex Cinemas - Home Of The T-Rex Theater
Essex Cinemas is a locally owned and operated Cinema located in the Essex Outlets.
We opened in October of 2001 as the first Stadium Seating Cinema in Vermont. That opening set
the bar for comfort and technology and we have grown and expanded since then to ensure we deliver
the best possible movie experience to our audiences.
Our continuing growth and improvements are marked by many milestones including;
There are many more, and the improvements are ongoing. Our goal is to provide a friendly atmosphere, the most comfortable theaters and the best video and sound available!
Custom sound systems in all theaters in 2009
Massive renovations in 2010
The expansion of Theater 1, already the largest screen in Vermont, to incorporate a 50 foot curved screen!
Conversion of all Theaters in to All Digital Formats, including 6 RealD 3D screens. These are the ONLY approved RealD 3D systems in Vermont; the best in 3D Movies!
Addition of two new theaters, including the One and Only “T-Rex, Theater Real Extreme” Theater! This unique combination of projection, screen, sound and seating has to be experienced to be believed!
June of 2011; T-Rex approved by RealD as the only RealD “Mega Theater” in Vermont capable of playing special extra-bright version of 3D movies. Our high power projectors make ReallD 3D jump off the screen!
Spring of 2012; T-Rex officially listed as Vermont’s Only Large Format Theater! This recognition by the Movie Industry places our T-Rex Theater in the same category as IMax and other proprietary cinema systems.
