This theater is fine but the location was a mistake when they built it years ago. It's across the street from a very upscale and large mall and is right on the freeway with limited entrances and exits. It's so unpleasant trying to get in here that no one makes the effort.

A decent selection of movies, the food lines move quickly. The theater food is as always, expensive. The staff seems a bit disinterested, but are efficient. Not a bad seat in the house.

Nice to have a fairly close Regal Theater in the area. Parking can be difficult but theater is well-maintained.
