Pros: option of two theaters (movie land and Criterion), self-service butter stations, clean and roomy stadium seating. Cons: parking, parking, parking. Really young teenage crowd of the weekend who often insist on talking through the entire movie (why pay to go to the movies and then talk through the whole thing??) Management does little to address this. Best to go... More

We went to this theater after searching for a place to watch Teenaged Mutant Ninja Turtles. The theater was a little warm but that was due to the movie being sold out. Besides that it was a nice facility.

This theater has all your new movies out. The movie price for Richmond is pretty good & if you have a Student ID you get a couple dollars off. The seats are very comfortable and the theaters very large. There's always plenty of parking. But the food & drinks (like any other theater) are very expensive.

Movieland (aka Bowtie Cinemas) has an appropriate offering of recent movie releases, reasonably clean theatres & restrooms, and fairly tasty unbuttered popcorn.

I go to this theater at least 2 Tuesdays a month because of their $6 ticket special for vip card members. They also have $5 large popcorn. THAT'S A DEAL in this age of $11 movie tickets! The theaters are clean, and the atmosphere is cool and different from most other theaters. This is my new go-to theater in Richmond!

Lots of parking, comfortable seating, not too crowded on a week night, and decent popcorn. It's a typical 21st century movie theater.

A typically big theater that plays Hollywood blockbusters and such. Thankfully they added a Art house theater which adds greatly to ones movie choices.

Movieland is in an historic building and not the usual mega theatre. Good parking and you can enjoy a beer or wine while you wait or if you just want to get there early. Good location in the heart of Richmond.

The converted factory location offers one of the most pleasing environments to catch a film we have visited. You get the latest films (including some art house films for the cinophile) as well as a weekly showing of something classic. All of this without having to endure the usual mall megaplex sameness.

Very well designed, layout is very nice. Lot's of choices for movies. The concession stand is expensive just like in any other theater but otherwise, clean and kept up. Very nice.
