Maya Cinemas was chartered in 2000 with a mission to develop, build, own and operate modern, first-run, megaplex movie theaters in underserved, family oriented, Latino-dominant communities.
Maya’s founder, Moctesuma Esparza combines his lifelong love of film, his vast experience as a film producer and pioneer and entertainment business developer in his pursuit of creating cornerstone movie theaters in communities lacking first run film entertainment options.
In 2003 Moctesuma’s vision was realized with the launch of the first Maya Cinema in Salinas, CA. Today this vision has expanded to Bakersfield, Pittsburg, Fresno and Delano, CA with continuing expansion plans in California and beyond.
Maya theaters offers first-run Hollywood movies in high-end cinemas focused on quality of design, state-of-the-art film presentation technology, and providing first-rate entertainment with superior customer service.
