Great Place to See a Movie but Caters to the 21+ Crowd

I'm all for adults having fun, but I find it very frustrating that this movie theater routinely shows PG-13 films that are in 21+ theaters during peak times for teens to see a movie. We have learned the hard way that you cannot rely on a matinee show because it is not uncommon to have a bunch or R films... More

Enjoyed watching the latest Captain America while here in business and found the theater to be most comfortable and relaxing.

Best cinema I've ever been. Great seats and perfect Service during the movie civil war. Hope we will have a similar soon in Germany.

The Food here is absolutely amazing, and the seating is extremely comfortable. I would definitely recommend this to anyone who likes movie theaters. Overall Rating: 85/100.

Didn't try the food but the seating and advance reservations are great. Pricey though--Vista theater is 8 miles further on but has similar seating and yet it charges the same as a regular theater--

The seats are super comfy, it is nice to be able to enjoy an adult beverage during the show. I was disappointed by the menu options. We ended up eating dinner elsewhere, but overall, we will be back. The comfort and seats were worth it!

This is our movie theater now and in the future. The seats are wonderful and the food is very good. Our last visit we had the mozzarella sticks, Roasted sausage and smoked gouda mac and cheese bites, with sodas and the delicious zebra popcorn. Price for the food was a hefty $50, but the experience was worth it.

Thighs was my first time to this movie theater. It was friendly, clean, and the recliners are so comfortable you may fall asleep during the movie. I did not order any food off the menu, but the menu was eclectic and from what I saw, the food looked good. It is a great place to come for an evening with... More

Still go only occasionally - the disruption from the food service is more annoyance than the service is worth having. The menu is overpriced and the food quality has plummeted. I have had to ask for refunds a few times. Lots of theaters offer enhanced seating, and this Cinepolis suffers from a real lack of film selection. You are limited... More

I've been going to this particular Cinepolis since the day it opened. I've been to one other and the experience seems to be similar. Reached a point in life now where a few dollars doesn't mean as much as it used to and this is a luxury I'm more than willing to pay for. No more "sticky shoes" as you... More
