    Fun theater, always has been clean and the seats are nice. Food is your typical movie food.

    While I love coming here to catch shows very often, I just discovered that the seats are horrifyingly nasty! I had hard time sitting on one at the last visit. Not sure if I'll come back here.

    Not as crowded as other theaters in the city. Buy your tickets online or use the kiosks on the side, past the box office for quicker entry. Concessions are typically only open on one floor.

    There are secret bathrooms on the second floor near the arcade machines. They're much cleaner and less used.

    A great, mostly hidden cinema-plex that is rarely as crowded as the Metreon. The only negative is that they can license for IMAX, but it is not the same type of size and experience as the Metreon.

    If you're paying with a credit card, use the machines which are hidden behind the cashier's house. You'll save a lot of time.

    Love this theater.it is never as crowded as Metreon or Westfield Center.but don't be fooled by IMAX theater here,it does not have a humangous screen as in Metreon.

    A large and well-kept theatre. Tickets are pricey, but the viewing experience is great and reliable.

    It's just an AMC. Screens are big and sound is loud. Good for movie time. One time the whole theater smelled like pot. Weird.

    Old seats, small screens, and a layout that takes forever to get anywhere. The AMC at the metreon is better if you have a choice.

    Get popcorn on the second floor because the top floor concession stand is most likely not open

    Get there in advance if you plan to buy some candy. The wait can be quite long sometimes.

    In theater 7, I suggest the middle of row G or I. Row H has easy access but you risk having a taller person sit in G and slightly block your view.

    Buy your tickets ahead of time (fees are waived if you're an AMC stubs member) and reserve the perfect seats! Then engage your schadenfreude when you kick the poachers out of them when you arrive.

    It's really a decent multiplex, more locals than tourists, such as @ Metreon. The IMAX isn't giant, but at least one can reserve seating. Worth going here than further downtown at night if you must.

    As an architectural space, this is an armpit with escalators for hairs. It is excellent if you like spending all day sneaking into new movies on a single ticket, however.

    Prepare for infinity escalator rides. Other than that, they are probably showing the movie you want to see. Also, hit up Tommy's across the street for some pre-movie grub.
