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.
Great Theater Experience – We enjoy this theater so much, we drive 30 minutes from our home. Yes, we can go to theaters closer to home, but we enjoy this theater...from the funky outer-space decor to the theater seating. There are so many screens that on a weekday, you can easily be the only people in a theater -- your own private screening room. The comfortable stadium seating with arm rests that lift up make it easy to be "cozy" during a good romantic comedy or "hide" your face during a psychological thriller.
Multiplex nightmare – Trust me, drive somewhere else and support a theater chain that doesn't try to pack 30 shoebox theaters in one building. Simply horrific.
Cinematic magic. – The AMC 30 in Ontario Mills is my usual for great blockbusters. But I live more than twenty miles from there now. Fortunately, my wife and I found this one a little closer to home. It lacked a little of the buzz of movie-going that we enjoyed at the Mills, but it is still an AMC 30. Wide isles, big seats, big screen and still playing the movies you want to see when others have moved on the the latest ones out, even if they're not that good. Paid a little bit more than closer ones, but the fact they had the movie we wanted to see was worth it. The floors were a little messy, but not overly so. Attack of the Clones was well viewed here by us.
My current favorite – This is a great theater. They have all state of the art equipment and plenty of showtimes. I like to go early to get my tickets and then have dinner and a drink at the Outback Steakhouse in the same parking lot.
Great, but – I have enjoyed the theaters, the seating, the screens but the parking has stopped me from going. If you don't get there half hour or better before the movie forget it
My Favorite movie house. – This is my favorite place to catch a flick. The place is huge so even on a crowded Friday night, finding a good seat isn't hard. Come on 30 theaters...how can you miss? The sound system in every theater is awesome and the stadium seating is very comfortable. Just lift up the arm rest and you and your sweetie can snuggle in love-seat style!
