The Disney Cruise line hit it out of the park with their Buena Vista Theater. This movie theater located on board each of the Disney cruise ships seats a little over 250 and plays not only first run films, but also has the ability to show movies in 3D.
There is a refreshment stand that serves popcorn, candy and canned soda (and beer), but you are free to bring your own with you. I try to pack snack sized movie theater candy for our cruise and we’ll stop by the beverage station before we go to the theater.
You will find a great selection of current movies on the Disney Cruise Line. All of the movies are listed on your Disney Cruise navigator (your daily newsletter). Most of the family movies are run during the day into the early evening. Later at night, you may find films tailoring more toward the adults (rated R).

No tickets are needed to see movies at the Buena Vista theater. You simply show up at the movie time listed in your Personal Navigator. We have never had a problem getting a seat as Disney usually shows movies more than once per cruise. Be sure to give yourself a little extra time if you want to purchase concessions.
As a tip, we usually pack movie theater candy boxes ahead of our Disney cruise so that we can enjoy them during a movie. We also make sure to bring a drink from the drink station as well. This cuts down cost, but still allows us a normal movie theater experience!
