“This place is the biggest local hoax since the Cardiff Giant”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed November 26, 2013

If you enjoy trying to find stores that are open amidst all the stores that have moved out then this place is for you. This mall has more restaurants per capita than anyplace on earth.When it was first built by hefty tax exemption funded by Syracuse taxpayers it was supposed to have a "World Class Aquarium" and a reconstruction waterworks of an Erie Canal village. Well that never happen and the owner just doubled the size of the mall last year,so would be shoppers could wander around and stare at empty spaces that were promised to be great stores that were coming soon. It short, this is no Mecca for serious shoppers. Stay home and order online, you won't regret it!

“WOW”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 24, 2013

I saw 2 movies. Gravity at the IMAX and Captain Philiipps at RPX. The seats are comfortable, sound is fantastic, and the visuals great. There is so much room between rows that you don't have to get up if someone gives into your row

“Excellent movie experience”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 8, 2013

I've been to movie theaters in a lot of places and while this isn't the absolute best, it is still very good. The digital projection in all theaters is excellent, and the sound is very good. The seating is quite comfortable (and not cramped), and while the theaters aren't always immaculate, they make a very good effort to keep them pretty clean, as well as the rest rooms. They have devices to those who have visual and hearing impairments, and the complex is fully handicapped accessible.

The things I'd complain about are not unique to this location. I hate the pre-showtime advertising, and I think that 15-20 minutes of previews that begin at showtime is excessive. I also think that movies are expensive nearly everywhere, as are snacks at the concession stand. The behavior of other audience members (talking and using their mobile phones) is also irritating. So I'm not downgrading this theater complex for any of those because I view them as generic industry issues.

I've tried both the RPX and IMAX theaters that are part of this complex, and while the experiences are very good, I have great difficulty convincing myself that either one is worthy of the significant premium in price that is charge for admission. I kind of liked the RPX a little better than the IMAX but will rarely pay extra for either one.

One nice thing about seeing films here, and in most Syracuse area theaters: except for opening nights for blockbuster films, the showings are rarely sold out, and in fact, are often less than half full.

I suggest that you get a Regal Crown Club card, if you'll be visiting Regal theaters here and elsewhere over time. I've gotten numerous free tickets, free soda coupons, and free popcorn coupons that way, and it cost you nothing.
