    It's a big, clean theater. Really great if you're going with a big group. I would suggest catching a matinee showing so you don't spend an arm and a leg!

    this is my favorite theatre to go to in the city. I am a creature of habit and I always get the same reliable service that I expect to get from this location.

    I love seeing movies in the theatre and so this is a frequent stop for me.

    AMC River East 21 is one of the better theaters with a good offering of international films. Be prepared to go up a few escalators since the theaters are on the third floor.

    This is the place for advanced screenings and special showings. A rowdier crowd goes here for some reason.

    Buy snacks from the Walgreens next door! So much cheaper and a much shorter line.

    Don't bother showing up early-ridiculous amount of commercials for mundane products like toothpaste, rum, video games and chocolate.

    The bar tender left the water running fully open the entire time we were there, over 2 hours. I told her the water was on. She said she left it on to kill germs, but it wasn't hot enough to do so. Ugh

    Another popular theater for film critics. But a really cool theater next to a bowling alley. Don't get lost.

    Avoid driving here as it is expensive even with validation.

    Pretty high quality theatre right in the middle of downtown #Chicago. Usually a good variety of movies playing and the theaters offer good sound and picture quality.

    Get a large beer for 10 dollars, it's huge and better than paying the same price for a coke

    Love this place. Big chain theater with relatively decent matinee ticket prices and it shows indie films. Stadium seating and a bar for those who like to have a cocktail before a show.

    I had 5 teen age brats kicked out of the theater at beginning of film. People clapped as they were escorted out. Stand up when people are being rude. Get AMC security. They will help.
