“One of the best AMC theaters I've visited. Period.”
Reviewed March 26, 2013

I recently stayed in Olathe for the first time while on one of many business visits near by in Overland. One of my favorite things to do while out of town on biz is to catch a movie. This AMC is one of the most up to date, cleanest, nicely decorated and just all around cool vibe AMC theaters I've been too anywhere. Their (new?) snack bar set up isn't something I have seen before and works great. I'll be back every time I am in town for sure.

“Lots to choose from”
Reviewed March 2, 2013

Have tried the IMAX, the Fork and Screen and the regular theaters. A big complex with a lot of options. Didn't really enjoy the Fork and Screen as much but use the IMAX 3D when the shows are released in that format. Seems to make for a much more enjoyable experience than the regular 3D.

“Simply the best theater complex in KC, and maybe the world”
Reviewed February 13, 2013

As one of the showcase theater complexes for Kansas City based AMC, this place always amazes with the latest concepts. Besides a good-sized IMAX screen, the Fork & Screen experience is wonderful - not to mention a genuine full service bar (yep, the alcohol kind). They have the latest soda fountain technology with probably 30+ soft drink options, as well as gourmet candies and popcorn. Stadium seating throughout of course, and even the parking is good.

The ONLY downside is a distinct lack of functioning automated ticket kiosks. Located next to the live ticket windows, there were only three available - and two of them were broken. No signs to indicate that, so you had to go through the whole process on one only to find that it couldn't dispense tickets. The second one kept getting some sort of system error. Thankfully we were there on a week night, otherwise there would have been a huge line at the one functional kiosk. More and more people buy their tickets online and this is the BEST way to pick them up quickly. But only when it works.

“Good bar here”
Reviewed January 22, 2013

The drinks are always great and you can bring them to the theatre with you.
I don't like the food in the fork and screen so if you're looking to drink, they allow you to get a drink at the bar and bring with you to your theatre now.
I don't like the food in the fork and screen... Lesser quality than Applebee's and not worth the money. Eat before you go!
In the regular food part they do have a few healthy options and bigger selection now, so that is just fine for me to grab a snack.
