I'm not a professional movie critic. I'm not a cinematic expert, movie industry insider, or a member of the Hollywood Foreign Press.

What I am is perhaps what you are, and that is a movie-goer who loves the theatre experience. I have a two-thumbs-up experience to share about a local Yakima Valley theatre and a new movie that has us on the edges of our extremely comfortable seats.

What's So Different About The Orion Cinema in Yakima?

I've always felt that there's nothing like the movie theatre experience. Sure, most of our viewing happens on much smaller screens, TVs, tablets, even phones. Some feature films and streaming series even shoot with the small screen in mind. But, especially since the pandemic robbed us of so much, including gathering in theatres for a time, it's all the more enjoyable to see and experience a film in the theatre on the large screen.

For my wife and me, we've found The Orion Cinema in downtown Yakima to be the perfect spot for a date night. Incredibly comfortable seats are on the top of the list of reasons why it's my go-to movie spot. Add to that the opportunity to order food and beverage to be served right there in your seat, and it's hard to imagine watching a film anywhere else. Amazing sound system, 21 and older atmosphere, and Micky's Pub, closes the deal for me.

Death On The Nile is Playing at The Orion Cinema in Downtown Yakima

Remember, I confessed upfront that I'm no Roger Ebert. However, here's what I'm telling friends and family about our viewing of the new film 'Death on the Nile'. If you love a classic 'who done it' - you're going to like this adaptation of the Agatha Christie classic. The cast features Kenneth Branagh, who stars in and directs the film, Armie Hammer, Gal Gadot, Ali Fazal, Letitia Wright, Tom Bateman, Annette Bening, Russell Brand, and others, who turned in some amazing performances. Really kept us guessing until the very end. See showtimes and what's playing at the ORION.
