This theater has MANY screens, several of which are broadcast in digital. The seats are all comfortable and the theater itself is about 10 years old... new compared to many theaters in the Puget Sound.
The drive out to Auburn may be long for some, but for those who will be racing at Pacific Raceways, gambling at the Muckleshoot Casio, shopping at the Supermall, or watching the ponies at Emerald downs, this is a great place to pick up a matinee before 5pm. Parking is ample, and patroled by security.
Finally you have the suburbia crowd from Lake Tapps and Lakeland Hills (local developments). I've seen many movies in this theater and NEVER had to ask someone to turn off their cell, quit talking/joking during the film, or put away the crinkling tin foil smuggled fried chicken. In Tacoma, Lynwood, Seattle and even Kirkland I've had to ask people to stop acting like clowns and ruining the show for people. I simply won't tolerate that and have NEVER seen it happen in small town theaters like this one.
Yes, the movie prices are a bit higher than Kent or Federal Way theaters for evening shows, but you can buy tickets from Costco for a discount. Free parking (unlike Seattle), few disterbances, and the high-quality chairs and projectors make this a great place to see that "must see" flick without problems.
Nice job guys!
Pros: Cheaper than Seattle, free parking, digital projectors, and clean & comfortable chairs.
Cons: Located in Auburn... a bit of a drive depending where you live.
