    My husband and I hosted our wedding “welcome reception” at Sinema in August 2017. We had a group of about 40 in the Backstage room with passed appetizers and an open bar for two hours. We had a great time. The servers were discreet and efficient, the food was excellent, and people loved the classic movie ambiance. I really appreciated that it was wheelchair accessible, since I’d had a hard time finding an elegant, accessible venue for the welcome reception. The event was very successful and I recommend them to anyone hosting a similar event!

    So far so good! I am very impressed with Sinema and their private event manager - Michelle Albanese is excellent. She is easy to talk to, down to earth and realistic. It has been a pleasant experience so far. The restaurant is seasonal so I haven't had a tasting yet, will schedule that and finalize seating and set up closer to my event time. I'm looking forward to having my wedding there on 10/10/20!
