3 ?'s please.....

We arrive at Harborside the week on July 11th. We have stayed in Royal towers several years ago, but first time at harborside. Just have a few questions...Thanks in advance for your time....

1. I read on the main Atlantis site that attire in the Casino was resort casual, but no shorts or tee shirts. Is this true, I mean I'm all for not looking "trashy", but come on....no shorts, nice ones?

2. I also read that the gates from the Atlantis to and from Harborside lock at midnight. Is this true, if so what does one do if they want to stay at the casino longer? Is there a key that will open the gate to get back to harborside?

3. About the theater. What size is it. and how often do they play movies? Does it get crowded? Not that we will use it much, but I'm just curious.

Since noone is answering.. I'll try and do my best.

As far as the casino, I've seen plenty of folk in dress short in the evenings. Dressy shorts and a collared shirt for men should be fine. On weekend nites, people tend to dress up a bit, so I'd pack a nice pair of chinos for your man, and slacks or a sun dress for yourself.

As for locking the gate.. I've never heard of this. But with all the construction going on.. I don't know what to tell you.

You really should take the comments on the Atlantis site about with a grain of salt.

While I tend to wear nice shorts and a polo shirt when there, especially at night (and often slacks on cool nights), you will also see, even at night, plenty of people in T-shirts and shorts.

Heck, even at night you will see plenty of guys in wife-beaters and shorts.

Not much compares to a dude in a wife-beater, with back and upper arm hair or pit hair leaking out all over jammed into the blackjack chair next to you.

Went to the Casino last week and most had shorts and a shirt on. It was casual but nice.

Saw the theaters and it was lined up. If I remember there are several different movies (3?). Didnt go in.

Can say about the gate.

Lincnprk: Had to laugh at loud at your reply. Wife beater shirt! Funny!! Seriously ... my husband and I have been to the Atlantis 6 times. We've played slots in the casino at night and there is my husband in (nice) denim shorts and a Mets t-shirt. I'm wearing nice, belted shorts and a tank top. No one cares.

While I don't know just how late the shuttles run from Atlantis to Harborside (12? 1?), it is an easy walk and there is a gate with a guard house. We've never been stopped walking through, but I'm sure the guard is looking for the day's appropriate colored bracelet on your wrist.

Both my husband and I wore shorts and t-shirts. And also tank tops, at different times that we went in to the casino. The way I see it they just want your money and really don't care how you are dressed.
