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

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

    The seats here are way more comfy than the Metreon. And the arms go up.

    Tip: 2 Fandango machines are upstairs too, beat the crowd! Also the food service is the worst, slow slow slow...

    Wear pants when possible.

    First show of the day is $6 and $10 for 3D

    If you can't keep quiet for 3 hours, do us all a favor and don't see a 3-hour movie.

    Maddie Mae · November 5, 2012

    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.

    Julie P. · October 10, 2012
  • Kim C.

    Sign up for an AMC Stubs card for popcorn and drink upgrades!!

    Kim Caldwell · August 13, 2012

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

    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

    Poor customer service, kept being shuffled around.

    Make sure to validate your parking before you head out!

    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

    Margaret · March 17, 2012
  • Chloe B.

    Before noon movies are $6. On Thursdays get a student discount. The IMAX is more like FakeMAX here.

    Chloe Benjamin · January 2, 2012

    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.

    Don't forget to validate your parking ticket!!!

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

    LaDenna Eglin · November 18, 2011

    Closest AMC theater to Berkeley. The food court there is nice too!

    Arrive early because the concession lines SUCK ass... This place is poorly managed.

    Great place to movie hop. If you're up for a little dangerous living.

  • scamper r.

    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.

  • Andrew Z.

    Matinees are the best. Avoid the weekend crowds.

    They typically have everything....

  • Jobert A.

    If you're going to bring outside food, sneak it in. They're assholes about it at this theatre.

    Jobert Atienza · August 7, 2011

    Go to IT'SUGAR downstairs and go all out on CANDY before you see a movie!You'll get more for your money! Plus, they have WAY MORE options!!! :)

    Boooo! I hate how they don't give refills for buying a LARGE ICEE. =(

    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

    Danny Ponticello · June 3, 2011
  • Danny P.

    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

    Danny Ponticello · June 3, 2011
  • Sabrina S.

    Check out the Imax. It's amazing! Plus the employees working here are beyond attentive!

    Validate your parking before you leave the theater with their self validation machine.
