It was a very nice comfortable theater. It has a good seating chart, I'd say lots of the seats have decent views. It was clean and the seats were comfortable. Good acoustics as well.

I don't know from personal experience but they check bags and allowed cell phones so I assume a laptop would be allowed as well. It will have to be turned off and they won't allow any recording or photos..
