    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.

    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.

    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.

    Nice theatre, big screen and lots of seats for accommodation. But cold drinks fountains machines run dry sometimes 😉

    If you join AMC stubs and buy concessions don't forget to request to upgrade you pop and popcorn to the best size.. It's free upgrade!

    theater is one of the nicer ones. seats are comfy and bigger so you're not crushed with the person next to you. but it is expensive!!

    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)?

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

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

    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.

    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.

    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.

    Don't waste your money on the IMAX screen here. It's a "Fake-IMAX" screen and not worth the extra $5.
