Pro's: You get to pick your own seat. They have a bar. Con's: No re-fills on popcorn! They should give you free re-fills since the popcorn is so darn expensive! Or at least one re-fill! Ticket prices are higher than AMC theaters and they jack...More

Nice intro from a host on whereabouts of exits etc. Comfy seats, albeit quite a lot of litter/waste from previous screenings around them. We were unlucky in that there was lots of noisy food eating around us during the screening and several people coming and...More

I have seen several exciting movies at this comfortable, visible theatre. I must say, the popcorn here is at the top of my list of favorite snacks. Settle back and enjoy the comfortable seats to watch comedy, intrigue or your favorite military figure. This neighborhood...More

An adult ticket price is $16.75. The seats are on the small/average size. For that ticket price, I expected those cozy recliner seats I've found in other theaters for a fraction of the price. The screen was only average. Each theatre was small. Seats are...More

I've been here for a few corporate bonding events, and they have great stadium seating and medium sized theatres. Sound is good, it's cool inside and relatively clean as the staff cleans up. They even have a small bar area with food/drink if you go...More
