    Good for dates, family fun, or friendly hangouts. Near Bay Street shopping if you're waiting for the next show. Also validates parking.

    Love buying my tixs at the kiosk instead of waiting in line. Food is over priced (of course) but theres a candy shop in the mall where you get a lot more for your money

    One of my favorite theaters, has been for a while now! Little bit pricy but that's what theaters are: expensive

    The ads and music before the show are excruciating, and everything that's wrong with chain theatres. So do avoid this place if you can… and if you can't, bring your iPhone, and earplugs.

    Butter for your popcorn is self service on the condiment table to the left or right of the confession stand.

    Movie theater with a bar. Gorgeous! Parking is usually plentiful and they validate!

    The best theater in the east bay. But this IMAX is not worth the extra money and 3D is never worth it. Stick to the regular theaters

    Theaters are nice, clean, feels new, movie going population can vary in terms of being loud and annoying.

    You can buy tickets at the kiosk right by the entrance, you don't have to deal with the mess downstairs

    skip paying nearly double for LIEMAX a.k.a. high-res digital projection cameras, *not* a large screen that would fill your field of vision Read more

    If movie lets out and bathrooms full, just go to the other side of the theater complex - no lines!

    Go see AntMan. Great movies don't need sexual content to make them Great! Loved the movie.

    Horrible customer service. Can't bring in outside drinks, so don't spend 15 mins in line at Starbucks waiting for your coffee because you'll just have to throw it away. Even when the theater is empty.

    Go to the early movie. U can bypass the crowds, long lines and teenagers by catching the 9:30 or 10am movie!

    They recently installed 4k projectors in some of the theaters. Girl With A Dragon Tattoo is the first movie to be finished in 4k. Enjoy.

    Sign up for AMC stubs if you buy popcorn or soda at least once a month. It automatically pays for itself through instant rebates plus some benefits
