    Couch seats couch seats couch seats that recline. Get a popcorn and feel like home.

    Good for big budget movies 🎥 in IMAX 3D. There are other theaters if you have to park a car in a place. Great garage to steal anything visible.

    The new adjustable chairs are super comfortable.

    Location is great but movie theaters are in dire need of air fresheners since too many homeless people come there to sleep.

    Conveniently located multiplex. Concession as expensive as you'd expect, screens and sound systems top notch. I'd like to see a few more international flicks but that's not realistic for AMC.

    Don't wait for a kiosk. Just go up to the counter where they have new self-kiosks. Makes it go faster.

    If all of the self-service ticket kiosks are in use, there's a few upstairs near the concession stands and to the side of the arcade area. (I didn't even know there was an arcade!)

    If you're at a later showing, the bathrooms downstairs will be closed after you get out. Also, the concession stands inside the theater part aren't ever open.

    There are automated ticket kiosks available which is definitely a lifesaver. Movies can also be seen in IMAX resolution for the best quality possible.

    Skip the popcorn. It's always cold (they pre-pack it) and they make you put the butter on yourself, so halfway through you have butterless popcorn.
