Don't go here if you drive a Honda. 6/22/2010

Plan on your Honda getting stolen if you go here. I know of 2 other people who have had theirs stolen from here within the last year. Mine was stolen and stripped a couple weeks ago. It's a painful, long process to go through with the cops and insurance agency.\r \r Even with the cop on patrol you're not safe at night. I don't mind the theater as a movie theater, but I would not feel safe going there anymore. If they up the security I would go back for sure, it's got a great concession stand, good seating, and a clean building. It's just a bad part of town now I guess, too bad. Pros: Liked the concessions Cons: Bad security more

rude staff, crappy snack stand, plenty of movie selections 11/2/2008

If you end up going to this movie theater, don't bother with the snack stand. I went for to a late afternoon mantinee and the staff couldn't have been ruder! There were two employees at the snack stand with no other customers. You think you'd be in and out quickly with two servers? Not so much. After I got their attention-hard to do since they were talking to each other- I asked for a small hot chocolate. It took ten minutes to make! During this time, the cashier is still talking to the other employee and moving in slow motion. ""What's the hurry?"" he asked the other employee. ""I'm in a hurry,"" I replied. ""My movie is running."" Understand, this is at the very start when he takes my order. When he finally hands it to me, it's not even hot. Seriously, how hard is it to make a hot chocolate? Did I mention this isn't the first time their staff has been rude? Last time I had to wait while the employees finished flirting with each other before I could place my order. I'm voting with my feet and taking my business to the Gateway. Pros: good movie selection Cons: rude, lazy employees at snack bar, sticky theater floors, dirty bathrooms more

USED to be the best, now the sound quality is terrible. 5/30/2008

When these theaters opened they had the HIGHEST quality sound in any theater and I would pay the large ticket prices with glee at getting to HEAR this amazing soundtrack.\r NOT SO anymore. Cinnamark has bought this theater and the high quality wonderful sound is GONE...but they still charge you for it.\r While watching Indiana Jones and the Crystal Skulls I could not hear what the characters were saying because of popcorn bag rattling 5 rows behind me. \r It is a darn shame that popcorn eating will drown out the sound system at a 'supposedly' high end theater.\r Let alone the constant chatter of under 3 year old kids that parents to cheap to get a baby sitter bring to such movies.\r The Century 16 Theaters have gotten their last dime from me as I can wait for the movies to come to the dollar theater as they have the EXACT same sound quality as the Century now has. \r \r You have no idea how sad this makes me.\r I used to LOVE this it is just mediocre at best. Pros: great parking. fabuloos seating and comfy seats Cons: terrible sounds and very high ticket prices more

What happened to the sound?!? 1/22/2008

For years this has been my favorite theater in Salt Lake - great seating, real butter on the popcorn, easy parking, and friendly employees - the perfect theater! \r \r Then, Carmike bought it and it's begun a steady decline. The popcorn is hit-or-miss, the employees are consistently rude, and the cleanliness is slipping. But the real problem is the sound! During each of the 6 or so movies I've gone to here in the past 6 months the story has been the same . . . the movie starts, and then the whispering in the crowd starts . . . ""why is it so quiet?"" ""turn it up!"" ""can you hear that?"" \r \r Invariably someone gets up to complain, but nothing changes. You can hear every popcorn bag crinkling, every soda sipping, every foot tapping, and every nose sniffling within a 100 yards. What you can't hear is the dam* movie!!\r \r I don't know anything about the technical aspects of theater sounds, but there's no doubt about it . . . this place ""ain't what it used to be,"" and someone is reducing costs by reducing the quality of sounds. I've been told it has to do with the quality of projectors they're using, or that they don't subscribe to DTS sound or something . . . who knows. Bottom line, I just can't go here any more because it's just too maddening. Which only leaves me with going to Larry Millers places, which are pits in their own right . . . bring us Lowes theaters! Pros: Good parking, good food Cons: Absolutely horrible sound quality now - what happened? more

the nachos are a meal 11/27/2007

I live in Layton and have been going to this theater for about seven years. I have always enjoyed the seating and the cleanness of the theater. The manager and staff do a great job! I managed over ten movie theaters in my heyday. This theater meets all my needs! It's worth the drive. Parking is fine, some people just need to realize that a little walk will not ruin the experience of the theater. Pros: Nachos Cons: No free or discounted drink refills. more

I love this theater! 1/1/2003

Century 16 is a terrific theater - the seats are very comfortable, the stadium seating makes for a good view from every seat in the house, the quality of the sound and screen is superb. Sure, the parking is a little bit difficult at peak hours, but that goes for all popular establishments in the city! The neighborhood is fine. I went to the midnight showing nearly every Saturday for a year and never felt any concerns. Car break-ins happen everywhere, unfortunately! As a hotel desk clerk, I always recommend this theater to my guests, and they always return very pleased. I am really glad that there is a great theater close to downtown. more

wonderful seating 12/26/2002

They have great stadium seating, no matter where you sit in the theater, can don't have to worry about someone sitting in front of you and blocking your view. Pros: seating, staff Cons: parking more

My preferred theatre 11/15/2002

Finding parking at peak times is a nightmare, but other than that I really like this theater. It's my first choice when deciding where to go. Pros: size, seating, variety Cons: parking more

Go Somewhere Else!!! 10/18/2002

This place sucks! The parking is a joke, there prices are outrageos, there service sucks, and it is never clean!!! If you want a good theater go to the gateway. Cons: bad parking, expensive more

Great Theater 8/8/2002

I love the comfortable seating and the variety of show times. more

Very decent theater 8/2/2002

Other than the terrible parking, I think this is a great theater. The floors tend to be sticky most of the time, though. I love the stadium seating and comfy chairs. The all-around cleanliness of the theater was pretty good. I have always been treated with respect by the employees. A decent theater. Pros: Excellent seating Cons: Bad Parking more

Everything but parking! 7/12/2002

This theatre is the first of it's kind and was built before Jordan Commons, Gateway, Jordan Landing, etc. It has the stadium seating and good sound the only problem I have with this theatre that parking is horrible! Other than that it is a decent theatre if you don't want to drive all the way downtown or all the way to Sandy. more
