Older theater

It is a older theater but employees are nice and theater isn't that bad. No bad smells like others posted.

The staff of this theater make it great!! Of course, the popcorn is also awesome! Each and everyone of those working had a smile and their face and spoke to the patrons. This gives this theater that hometown feel even if it's not your hometown. The lobby, theaters and the restrooms were clean.

Seat arm rests don't go up, backs don't recline. Theater smelled musty. Went to the first show of the day so it was half priced but spent $10 for a kid pack of snacks. Almost $20 if you want 2 large drinks and a large popcorn. Felt more like a dollar style theater. Drinks are self serve.

Prices are high wherever you go for your movie going experience. The whole place was clean, the staff was friendly. I had a little difficulty with their rewards program but they stepped up and took care of it. I would definitely recommend enjoying your movie going experience at this Theater.

I have been to this theatre on numerous occasions and through escalating prices, it is not a good value for the money spent.

Great to go watch a movie without having to drive all the way to Carbondale but this place needs a remodel! But overall good place to go for a movie

Old theater with uncomfortable seats and lack of incline so view may be blocked. Food is way overpriced. $6 for a small bag of popcorn. I will be watching movies from my house in the future

Recently went to the show with a group of friends. The girls at the concession were friendly and even helped us get the most bang for our buck on snacks. The theater had comfy seats and best of all, floors were NOT sticky!! Side note, 1/2 piece Tuesday's with stub card!!

We love going to the movies and AMC makes it a great time. We love the Stubs program. The staff is very helpful with the stubs program and letting us know what we have on the card. The popcorn was fresh and I ate the whole bag. OH!! My!! I didn't share very much and told them to get their... More

A modern theatre in a town of +17,000 people. It's located behind the Illinois Star Centre Mall. For the most part, it's in a relatively safe and semi-quiet neighborhood. There was one incident in January 2013 were young burglars broke into several patron's vehicles. Parking has never been an issue although I tend to avoid rush hours - Friday and... More
