My wife and I visited this theater for the first time recently, to see a 10 p.m. showing of a mainstream film (Bohemian Rhapsody). We had a great experience. The theater is housed in an attractive building that reminded us of theaters we've been to...More

I don't understand the excitement for this place. The space is very cramped so there are usually lines and tons of people. The seats and the entire area where we sat was sticky, in dire need of a serious cleaning. They were out of diet...More

We enjoyed dinner and drinks in the lounge then a film in the very comfortable reclining seats,! Chicken tenders were good and chicken sandwich was too. Free parking at garage a block away was a definite plus.

Seats are reasonably comfortable and preselected which is really nice instead of finding out when you walk in. Prices seem about average and parking is accessible and free. I can't say anything about the food as I didn't try it. I'd definitely consider coming back.

Comfortable preselected seats and fancy movie theater food, plus beer and gourmet coffee, make this more than just a movie night. Located in the Merrifield Mosaics complex, this area has a nice vibe for hanging out before or after the movie. Only downside is while...More

This theatre is really nice. All the bells and whistles. Reclining seats, exceptional customer service and it’s neat and clean. Even from the 3rd row, it’s not too close to enjoy the movie. We love the popcorn too.

I come here during the day because it's got the basics. Great food and service, free parking, alcohol. Seats don't recline but plenty of leg room. The area can get busy so plan accordingly.

If you lived in the area back in the 90's, then you know how much this entire place has changed so dramatically. Most people would say for the good... The film center is a great place that often shows "not as popular" films, or "arty"...More
