Merrill's Roxy Cinemas

222 College St., Burlington, merrilltheatres.net

This family-owned downtown theater is the closest thing Burlington has to an art-house cinema. Hard-core film buffs will appreciate the curated selection of indie films and documentaries often shown here and nowhere else in the state. But those itching for the next installment of the Star Wars franchise will find the Force is with them, as well — mainstream flicks play here, too. The screens are smallish, but the popcorn is the best around.

Big Picture Theater

48 Carroll Rd., Waitsfield, bigpicturetheater.info

Forget dinner and a movie. Try dinner in a movie at this quirky ski-town restaurant/bar/theater. It's worth the drive.

Essex Cinemas & T-Rex Theater

21 Essex Way, Essex Junction, essexcinemas.com

Movies on the "big screen" don't get much bigger than at the T-Rex Theater. Especially for effects-heavy blockbusters like, say, Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom, accept no substitutes. The massive theater hosts occasional concerts, too.

Majestic 10

190 Boxwood St., Williston, majestic10.com
Majestic 10 - OLIVER PARINI

Nestled in the heart of the bustling Maple Tree Place shopping center, this modern multiplex is your go-to for everything from The Incredibles 2 to Avengers: Infinity War.

Palace 9 Cinemas

10 Fayette Dr., South Burlington, palace9.com

In addition to the typical blockbuster fare, this SoBu cinema features specialty programming, including live, high-definition broadcasts from the Metropolitan Opera in New York City and classic-film matinées.

Savoy Theater

26 Main St., Montpelier, savoytheater.com

For a real art-house cinema experience, check out this Montpelier mini-plex. Bonus: beer or wine with your popcorn.

Sunset Drive-In

155 Porters Point Rd., Colchester, sunsetdrivein.com
Sunset Drive-In - KIRSTEN CHENEY

This classic drive-in is a throwback in the best way. Pull in for a double (or triple!) feature and lose yourself in the vintage vibe.
