Multiplex and megaplex theater chain shows mainstream movies in a plush setting. – In Short
In 1920, Edward Durwood opened a single-screen picture house in Kansas City, Mo. Over the next 40 years, his company went on to pioneer the use of four- and six-screen theaters. In 1969, the company incorporated as American Multi-Cinema Inc. in honor of its signature multiplexes. Now, the company is known for theaters with 14 or more screens, as well as innovations such as armrests with built-in cup holders, stadium seating with LoveSeats, ATM-style ticketing and online ticket purchasing.
Uneven experience. – An okay theater. It's divided into 2 different buildings ? one building is stadium seating, the other is the old squat-style seats. This irritates me because which side you wind up in is a gamble - 50/50 shot at getting nice seats or crummy ones. Lately, the service/staff has been declining as well. Generally, It's not as bad as some other theaters. But 3 of the last 4 movies I've seen here have still been in clean-up minutes before showtime, and several times the staff just disappeared. I walked right in a couple times without anyone there to take my ticket. It's in a decent location, and I go because it's close. When the service is good, it's great, but when it's not, it's pretty bad. Right now, which theater experience you get is too unpredictable.
