Sat in row F but wish I had chosen a seat further up and back. Screen is huge! Great sound system. Star Wars was good.

Love watching movies here in the nice plush recliners. They are very comfortable and love that we get to pick out our own seats. The coke machines are another perk, can have 100+flavor options!

We like the recliner seats, good theater with lots of movies to choose from. Beverages and popcorn can be pricey but expected. At peak times bathroom need cleaning more often.

I love this theater! We've always been able to get great seats even at the last minute. I use my premier rewards card to build points for free popcorn and special showings of new movies.

Stadium style seating and the chairs recline. There is an IMAX as well but it is a long walk to the bathroom. The commons area has a great echo chamber and is fun to walk-through.

Very comfortable reclining chairs with plenty of leg room so that you don't feel smashed into the people around you. Drinks are self-serve in the lobby. Ticket prices are on the higher side for a movie but the extra leg room makes it worth it!
