  • Joachim J.

    A massive sized IMAX theater for the action junkies and thrill seekers.

    Joachim Jocson · August 8, 2014
  • David J.

    Even though this theatre getting old it is still one of the best around for sound and picture quality. While their IMAX is a retrofit it is still pretty excellent and the best of the retrofits.

    I'm guessing this theater rakes in A LOT of $$$... Why can't they remodel it like the AMC Lake in the Hills, which has reclining seats and the Coke Freestyle machines (and costs about half the price)?

    If you can't pass 2 hours without checking your phone, you need to stay at home! Don't ruin the movie for everyone else >:/

    Turn on the A/C, paying this much for a ticket, it is 100 degrees in here.

    If you get popcorn, ask them to fill it halfway. You can put butter and salt, then have them fill it up the rest of the way and rebutted and resalt. Mix it by shaking each time.

    Free Refills on the large Popcorn and drinks!! But there is no beer...

    Avoid the dumb ass at the concession stand with the glasses and big teeth. He doesn't know what he is doing and like to drop your food on the floor and make u wait longer.

    Christopher Mitchell · June 8, 2012
  • Lisa B.

    Really expensive! But they have YOGEN FRUZ!!! Mmmm

    Quite possibly one of my favorite spots to catch a flick. The place is cleaned and maintained regularly, and best of all, no sticky floors. Note: If you come on a holiday be prepared it gets packed.

    Stubs is not worth it. If you average 1 movie a month you will get $10 back. Too bad it cost $12/year. Someone in corporate did the math where they will make a profit.

    White cherry ice here is fire!!

    $10 for a blurry projector, not a quality theater. Money must go towards the bamboo on the deserted concession stand

    Lewis Conley · December 26, 2011

    This hi tech movie theater is right off the tollway. IMAX screen, awesome stadium seating. It's a real gem.

    Court Passant · July 18, 2010
  • Carl L.

    If you watch IMAX 3D, wear the glasses flat on your face. The temple arms don't sit on my ears, maybe yours won't either.
