Great theater 6/23/2006

AMC Theater is my favorite theater to go to. Their theater is nice and air conditioned. Not only that, but the sound and picture are all very good and clear. Although, the prices fro the night show tickets are expensive. Other than that they do a great job keeping the theaters clean and the floors non-sticky. more

Not Bad for a Google-Plex 5/9/2006

It's kind of a sorry thing to go to a movie these days. These multi-plex theaters have sort of taken all of the charm out of it. The popcorn is like eating styrofoam pellets at most of them and the staff tends to be just a tad surly. This theater manages to make things relatively pleasant. Some of the same problems you always find with the multi-plexes can be found here. It's huge and the smaller theaters are very small. However, for the most part I have enjoyed every one of my experiences. Once I did end up seeing the same ads before the movie play over and over and over again before someone mentioned something to someone. I can't see that Coca-Cola add with the glass of Coke and the ice cream without having flashbacks. Still, the seating is very comfortable. The staff is generally friendly. Even the restrooms are relatively clean. I enjoy a theater kept rather cool but to some you might find this place a little cold. You do have to endure a lot of ads before the movie, but at least the sound is decent and they don't seem to be dimming the bulbs on the projectors in some mis-guided attempt to extend the bulb life. more

Movies galores 8/1/2005

This is one of the larger movie theaters that I have visited and I would just like to say that they have the latest movies at reasonable prices. This is definitely the place to be where you can hang out with a bunch of friends on a summer night. The theaters are nice and comfy and are just wonderful to be in! Check it out! more

Great Theater 7/24/2005

This theater is so huge, it looks like a little town of its own. And its a wonderful place to see a movie. I go here all the time and have never had a complaint from the staff or the theater itself. They have 30 theaters, with lots of movies and showtimes available. You can never go wrong with this theater -- its clean, well-kept, has lots of free parking, tons of showtimes, with a great sound system and comfy seats. Don't miss out on this great theater! more

Student Discount 7/18/2005

AMC is my favorite theatre to go to. They offer 30 screens with auditorium seating. Service is usually friendly. AMC also honors students discounts which is not offered at all theatres. One time while watching a movie, the fire alarm had gone off accidently. It was opening night of a movie and everyone was escorted out of the theatre into the cold. My friends and I decided to go home. While others were given a voucher we were turned away due to the fact that we left the theatre. AMC does not usually show the lower budget movies. Overall, my experiences at AMC have been pleasant. I continue to go there. more

  • In Short
    A top-of-the-line movie paradise outfitted with stadium seating (with armrests that lift out of the way to turn them into "love seats"), cup holders and high-quality digital sound; some feature digital surround sound for the occasional film that employs it. The largest theaters, 14-17, seat nearly 400; theaters 1, 13, 18, 30 are the smallest, holding less than 200.
