    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.

    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.

    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.

    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!

    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.

    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.

    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. :)

    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!

    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.
