Good concept but not practical

PSA when visiting the AMC in West Orange. Just returned from a family movie. Firs of all, the service was shockingly slow. But even worse, I mistakenly left my phone for a maximum of ten minutes and it was never turned in. We sat in the last row and waited until the credits had completed before leaving, so there were...

Make sure that you are going to the movies to see a great one, then you would be totally disappointed. The service is actually not bad, and the process found ease of ordering are fine. The food is good, and I am sure contains a heavy does of calories. It is tasty and sometimes even warm. The drinks are fine,... More

It's a cool spot not too far from us so we decided to give it a try... PROS: - reclining, comfy seats - button to press for food and drinks - good parking CONS: - food is really salty - drinks are watered down - be careful w/seats as it's easy to catch stuff (bed bugs or other...things)

AMC should just stick to movies. While the idea is great, the food, drinks, and service are nothing to write home about. The dine-in theatre has really comfy reclinable seats that can help take your mind off the bad food.

By far I've enjoyed the Dine-in-Theatre experience best here. I can buy tickets online with their App. The seats are large and comfortable with 9 theaters available. The screens are a decent size and the sound quality is good. There's also a lobby bar and food. My kids enjoy it here too.

This place is such a dump. Service is slow, food is terrible and the other guests are unruly and ill-mannered. There was a particular guest speaking on their cell phone during the movie. The employees stood around and did NOTHING. Someone finally complained and they asked the guy to leave, but ten minutes later he was back in his seat... More

It takes forever to get someone to take your order, the food is worse than fridays. Don't try to order an appetizer then a meal because that is a little to complicated for them. They recently cut down menu choices to make it easier but the people who work there could really care less and are basically just a means... More
