“Very uncomfortable seats!!!”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 10, 2014

Maybe because the theater is really old, I am not too sure. But, those seats were sure very uncomfortable.

“Nice facility and not very crowded -- but that always seems odd to me”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 9, 2013 via mobile

This facility is nice and in an upscale mall. Why it's never busy always amazes me. Maybe it's the random entrance from outside that doesn't give you the warm and fuzzies. Maybe it's too large with screens upstairs too (though that box office is never open). Maybe the kids in this area all have movie theaters in their houses. Maybe the kids are busy shopping spending grandpas money. Can't put my finger on why it's not frequented, as it always has the latest releases showing.

“One of the lamest theaters anywhere”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 7, 2013

We go here for convenience and nothing more. Prices for tickets and concessions are out of control, and the service is ALWAYS atrocious because they do not pay much or train their staff much... and you get what you pay for (and what you don't). AMC hasn't invested a dime in this place since the 1980's and it shows. The place is a disgrace. Yet it is the closest multi-screen theater to my house. Hate this place but yet I keep going.

“Good sound system and theatre”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 16, 2013

Went to watch Elysium starring Matt Damon today. The sound system and screen were good, and the chairs were quite wide and comfortable. They have 14 theatres in total. A good place to spend a few hours. Customer service was bubbly and efficient and they also serve food in the forecourt. There are also good restaurants nearby, including Corner Bakery Cafe.
