    Adequately clean all around. Love the high-back seating. Everything to me was above-board -- except the movie volume. Could've been somewhat louder.

    If you go to a lot of movies it is worth getting the AMC Stubs Card. You get $ off at the conession stand, and every $100 you get $10 back. Save $ by going to shows before 12noon everyday.

    My favorite place to go watch a movie! !! Just make sure you get there when the lights are off cause the seats are kinda dirty

    IMAX is available here. Lines can get kind of crazy during weekends busy hours. Be prepared to wait.

    Last movie date of the year. I didn't anticipate it being so packed here but its a Saturday night. So, I guess. Guardians of the Galaxy better be worth it!

    The sound system and image quality are great. However, the seats are not the most comfortable for long movies. The restrooms need more attention.

    No one should ever pay for the "IMAX" experience here because it's not. It's a LieMAX. Go up to Irvine and pay for the real thing. Smaller theaters here are treated poorly, but the staff is nice.

    Matinees are the best time to go....small crowds as long as you can deal with the elderly opening candy really slow...

    Unsurprisingly the cashier knew nothing of the Google Offers/Fandango deal that I presented. Oh well. Very good movie, though... "My Week with Marilyn".

    not a fan of the non-reclining seats. got moviepass? get your ticket at the self serve kiosk so you can use stubs rewards!

    It's a little pricey going here but the screens are in good condition. If you get tickets for theater 20, return them. The surround sound has been messed up for several months. Left side is broken.

    Kiosks are turned off. According to the guy at the ticket booth, that's "because they're from the 90's". They print prepaid Fandango tix at the booth.

    They never have enough staff working the concession stand so go early. Typical wait time is 10 minutes on a slow night, way longer on busy nights.

    See all movies before noon for $6, even new releases. Plus they tend to be less crowded that early.
