    I only come here for the movies, especially the ones in 3-D. Don't touch the popcorn. Why would you even put butter on that?

    Came here to see to Logan and was shocked by the amount of escalators I had to take to get to the theater screening my movie. Audience had no manners, talking throughout the movie. Go somewhere else.

    Get tickets from Fandango to avoid long lines. For tickets pick-up, you don't need to fall in line. There's a designated cashier in box office for that. Well, $1.50 service charge ain't bad at all. 😊

    Can get in line for IMAX movies only 30 mins before showing.

    Dirty, huge, cheap before noon. I'll go wherever movies are. I've been here a bunch of times and had only one really bad experience. Go to Dave and Buster's after, or BBQ for fatty, delicious food.

    seems like the higher the floor, the more high brow the movie.

    Avoid the "IMAX" screen. You're better off going to Lincoln Square.

    Es un cine lujoso y esta en Times Square por eso los precios son un poco mas elevados que en otros cines.

    Gran cantidad de salas y variedad de peliculas. Los precios varian segun el horario (desde $7.99) y tipo de pelicula. Variedad de comida.

    券売機端末が充実ですが、日本発行のクレカだと反応しないことが多いです。その場合、窓口で買う必要があります。周りに飲食店があまり充実してないかもですね。

    Вполне реально купить один билет и потом ходить из зала в зал и смотреть разные фильмы)

    A porção de chicken serve muito bem até dois brasileiros. Chegue com um pouco de antecedência para curtir o lugar.
