    They are on fandango, so buy tickets in advance to skip the line. Also, try the gourmet popcorn- the mixed cheese and caramel popcorn for something different.

    This place has a Imax screen but not regular size though it's small when compared to Regal theaters. But the sound and 3D experience wer amazing

    Sign up for a Stubs card! Great rewards program. $10 rewards for every $100 spent. Free concession upgrades. Online purchase fees waived. And a digital library of all your movie stubs.

    Great selection of movies, but long lines at the ticket stand. Grab dinner beforehand because they enforce the no outside food or drink policy.

    Get there early since it seems they always run out of fountain drinks and when they do they'll let you bring in a drink - either that or pay $4.75 for a 1 liter bottle of water.

    Buy tickets online, bring your card to the kiosk next to box office, check in - skip long lines. Come early if you're at iMax - no allocated seating-first come first serve.

    This theater shows all the hindi movies. Get here early over the weekends, finding parking is the hard part.

    They revamped the concessions and its bigger and lines are only for paying now. New soda machines have a lot more choices.

    Watch out for the "Outside Food Nazi". If you're careful you can slip a Jamba Juice in with being burned at the stake.

    The movie theater I tried smelled either of old furniture or pop corn. It ruined my show.

    They won't let you buy more than one ticket for a rated R movie if you are under 21. You have to have somebody over 21 with an id to be able to buy any other tickets. So stupid!

    There's parking on the side of the theater as well as behind. Arrive early to ensure parking at this plaza!

    They have occasional Bollywood movies here and they get packed. Arrive early to ensure parking, wait time, and sanity!

    Theater 11 has a 4K 2D Sony projector. It is ridiculous. Best viewing experience in the Peninsula...

    Most uncomfortable seats at a theater. They don't lean back so you're uncomfortably sitting straight the whole time. The arm rest are way too close. I need to flip at least 1 armrest up to be sorta ok

    They will cajole and ask and press and wear you down until you buy this stupid Stubs card. Arggh! Resistance is futule.

    Lack attention to detail. Nice enough. Movie didn't start on time. Then started without sound. They fixed but didn't restart—missed 5 min :(

    I've noticed that tickets are only $6 if you go before noon. At least they are during the week. Not sure about the weekend.

    Never go to screen 3. It's very small and you can not even see full screen from most of the seats. It has so weird seat arrangement.

    OutRun 2 at the arcade :D It's $1 though. (Assuming the high score boards haven't reset) Try to beat my score (initials: LEN!).

    They let us bring in outside food today, so I guess it depends on who takes your ticket.

    For any Avenger movie (eg. Iron Man 3), stay through the credits for an extra tidbit of film.

    Make sure you get here early on a new release weekend because the staff has no idea what they're doing when it comes to organizing lines.

    It's cool enough. Not any better or worse than any other AMC. It does have a nice IMAX theatre

    If a movie doesn't have an asterisk by it - you can use the silver passes

    Tickets aren't cheap and you cant bring in outside food or beverages. (Invest in a large purse or man-bag to hide them.)

    I wouldn't recommend joining the AMC Stubs program unless you see movies every month and actually buy concessions (I know I don't). Not worth it besides that. I miss MovieWatchers!!
