    If u r an Extras card holder you get upgraded free to VIP theatre during the week. Nice plush seating and tables where u can bring in your food and adult beverages from the bar! Love this place:)

    What's not to love about this place? Apart from the modern-day high movie prices all over, there is a free Extras program that includes $6 movies, FREE underground parking, and best sound in the city.

    Try the barbecue chicken flatz pizza, a flatbread-based pie with cheese and buffalo sauce ($5.50). Parents can check out the 21+ VIP section with a full bar and food like paninis or cheese plates.

    Instead of going to the ticket counter, use the kiosk to pay for your tickets. You get to pick your seats in the theater. The reserved seating is really awesome. If you're w/ friends though, you need

    The absolute best movie-going experience ever! VIP seating is a must, never a bad view of the screen. If you'd like a delicious, yet early death, try the Bacon popcorn. Royale Burger is delish too!

    I love this theatre. Free parking. Comfy seats. No kids. But if you use Fandango mobile ticket option, be aware they don't really support it. Sent me back to ticket stand to get printed tickets.

    My favorite theater in chicago. It just feels luxurious with ushers to assist you and a posh bar up top. Popcorn is great and they've also got frogurt for those seeking lighter fare.

    This is one of the only theaters I know of in the area where you can buy reserved seats. Forget worrying about how you & your friends will all sit together at midnight openings!

    Be sure to try out the Starlite Frozen Yogurt at the ShowPlace ICON Theatre. Also - this is about the only theatre in Chicago that uses REAL butter if you ask for it with your popcorn. Read more

    The coke icee is my favorite and the original hot caramel popcorn delicious. Awesome place to enjoy with the kids a funny 3-d movie. Clean, safe and great customer service.

    Free parking and ability to reserve your seats makes this place my go to movie theater. Try out the pretzel bites, also a lounge for you to chill at before the movie.

    If you plan to eat on the 2nd floor bar / restaurant be sure to allow for plenty of extra time. Food usually takes 40 minutes, though you can bring it in to the movie. :)

    VIP seats are no worth it! You are better off going o a bar before the show. They don't serve you in the theater. They make you get your food, during the movie, and the prices are outrageous.

    Not sure if VIP access was worth it (aside from assigned plush seating) as you only need to show ID to get to the bar/restaurant. Great add to South Loop though! Read more

    Never sit in Row B. Ugh, my neck was hurting bc I had to look up the entire time. Also, the food was not tasty at all. The restaurant looks nice and all but I'll never go back for the food.

    Royale Mini Burgers are delish! I love this theater, and the extra bonus' of the "Extras Card"...so worth the membership, I'd pay for it if it wasn't already free!

    Worst movie theater I have ever been to. Awful service - waited 20 minutes for only a pop and barely made it in time for the beginning of the movie. Reserved seating is BS for a movie theater.

    Nice theater....free parking....convenient location....absolutely LOATHE assigned seating...nothing worse than sitting next to a total stranger for almost 2 hours and be uncomfortable!

    It's an adventure and a half to figure out the horribly laid out parking structure. No option to take the stairs, which is a huge fire hazard and a pain when elevators are packed.

    They are very welcoming and they seem to know all about audio description for the blind and visually impaired and their equipment works perfect

    Be careful there is a seedy individual begging at the entrance of the theater begging for someone to buy him a ticket and he's getting pissed off. Bottom line he is up to no good!!

    Bring your own food and beverages. The only lines worse than here are at ohare. The concession people don't seem particularly motivated.

    Get the Portabello panini at the lounge. Very good. In fact, just go to the lounge. Great design and place to grab a drink before the show.

    I LOVED this theater when they had free parking. It made up for the pricey tickets. Now that you have to pay big money to park...it's not worth it.

    Don't eat the food. Don't get the flat soda. U may or may not get water. Reserve Ur movie ticket 2 weeks ahead of time because they have reserved seating.

    They got rid of their tuesday cheap movie ticket deal and they started charging for parking. You have to pay full price to park now (bonus is a free $7 at the snack bar)

    The manger here is rude and when it comes to movie screenings here he's rude and the people don't seem happy that work here I never feel welcomed when I come here!
