Love watching movies here in the nice plush recliners. They are very comfortable and love that we get to pick out our own seats. The coke machines are another perk, can have 100+flavor options!

We like the recliner seats, good theater with lots of movies to choose from. Beverages and popcorn can be pricey but expected. At peak times bathroom need cleaning more often.
