“Modern Cinema”
Reviewed September 27, 2012

I quite like the Empire Studio cinema in the Avalon Mall and think it's very modern with comfortable seats and a lot of theaters. They have big bathrooms and two concession lines. My only complaint is that both concession lines don't serve the same food so you have to know what you want in advance and pick that line (which isn't a great idea if you want one thing and the people you're with want another as the lines move at different rates).

The pretzels aren't great and are kind of rubbery but the popcorn is good (if you like a lot of salt). Like most concession stands, everything is overpriced and not very healthy but that's par for the course.

The cinema, however, is much better than expected and one of the nicer ones I've been to in North America.
