I was confused as to the best way to buy tickets, since seats are now reserved and you're now sitting in Lounge Chairs. I went to the theatre when it was slow and was advised best way is to buy on line. And if you are an AMC Stubs Member you do not pay the on line fee. Obviously, you... More

We had a chance to see a movie in one of the newly equipped auditoriums yesterday. It's an improvement, but they also have some issues. The reserved seats have very good screen visibility. The ones in the center are "twofers", two seats with no separator, intended for a couple. They are vinyl covered recliners with decent lower back support. Comfortable... More

The theaters are in the midst if a total and needed renovation. Approximately 40% of their seating will be sacrificed to accommodate the new easy chair seating and swing table tops for food and beverages. Not yet complete the newly redecorated and reconfigured theaters will feature state of the art sound and digital projection systems. You will be allowed to... More

This theater has really gone down the drain. Toilets are getter bad and are poorly maintained. Carpets throughout the facility appeared to have been exposed to flooding. Dryer fans were running all over the place. In addition, we were almost scammed on parking costs. The parking discount was not given until we spent about 25 minutes and three elevator rides... More

I went by myself. It was in the mall and fine for a movie theatre. I wouldnt say it stood out or paled in comparison to any others I have been to visit.

We went to the matinee for Civil war and both got tickets for under 15 bucks combined. We also only had a dozen people watching the movie with us which was pretty cool. This location was clean in all areas we walked through. The theatre seats were clean and the floor was not sticky. Employees were friendly, professional, and helpful.... More

Always a great collection of current movies and walking the mall before or after is delightful. Stadium seating makes viewing perfect.
