Do not get confused with the two theaters that share the same parking lot, one is Movieland, and the smaller one is the Criterion. MY REVIEW IS ABOUT THE CRITERION CINEMAS® AT MOVIELAND. We went to this theater on March 8, 2015, to see the movie called "Still Alice". Again, There are two theaters that share the same parking lot... More

We wanted to see the Kevin Hart movie Wedding Ringer and this was one of the few places still showing it. It was Valentine's Day and the rush for 50 shades of gray was making it challenging to find a parking space. There also was a line to get tickets and a line to have the ticket torn. Fifty shades...

My husband and I were on a dinner and movie date, so we chose Movieland as the theater to see "Selma." This movie was showing in at least three of the theaters, therefore we were able to enter immediately with the movie starting shortly there after. The theater was comfortable, with reclining seats and comfortable temperature setting. Ushers were present... More

Saw "Unbroken". This theater provides a great experience. It is clean throughout and the equipment provides an excellent movie experience.

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.
