Great experience!

This is a seating assigned theater where you cane have foods and drinks served to you seat! Real fun, clean, the seats are really comfortable with plenty of legroom.

I struggle with this review. I think you get the "value" out of what you pay to see a movie in this theater IF you take advantage of all the services. This is a luxury theater. You'll pay a premium to see a movie here ($17 for a standard ticket). If you order something, they will bring it to you... More

This is a fun place to go to the movies. Nice for a date, it looks impressive. I like going here as a single, there's so much room between you that you don't feel single. Everyone is spread out.

Reserve seating is great!!! No worries about standing in line. They have tons of food options, including beer & wine. It appeared that they would deliver the food to your extra wide seats!! Tons of leg room too!! Each seat had at least a 10" wood table with cup holder between them. We visited on vacation. It was worth going... More

My husband and I loved this movie experience! They have reserved seating which we love. We ordered our food ahead of time and they brought it right to our seats. We had them bring gelato an hour after that. Awesome seats. The movie host is a live person who introduces the movie to you, naming the actors in it and... More

I'm about 5'4 and felt tortured for the 2.5 hours of my movie. I was so disappointed too because for the price of the tickets, the "reclining chairs" were really uncomfortable. My husband is 6'1 and had no problem but because of my height and the slope of the headrest etc, I walked out of the theater with a sore... More

All in one, it was a great experience, some comfy chairs and a great way to watch a great movie. It's pricey but it's a great night out.

I love the big, comfy seats here! There are never a lot of people at this theater, which is a plus. I think it is totally worth the extra cost.
