I cannot believe 4 million dollars was spent on this theater! I find the layout boring, and the decor, what little there is of it is so very plain. Mostly I find trying to watch a movie as I did recently that was complex, compelling, interesting and moving, .... with subtitles, was quite distracting when the servers, hunched over and walking all over the place interrupted my focus. And how could they not? They have to take the order, deliver the order and walk in front of people to do it. This concept is beyond silly. How can you concentrate on food like pizza while you watch a movie in a dark ( not quite dark enough!) room.

The seats are nice, the sound good and the people very pleasant. They even responded to my comments to them by e-mail. But I will have to be desperate to see the film showing to go there again. and for all that money... wow, you don't always get what you pay for.

Reserved seating is silly too, when in a 75% empty space, people are seated right next to you. Who also payed less for their tickets because they walked up and got them... I paid a surcharge per ticket, yes only a dollar, but that would have paid my balance due on the parking. didn't that used to be free for at least the length of the movie? They try to get you to buy online, but you still have to show your card and GET the tickets and they charge you for doing it!
4 million, and the seat number medallions are already falling off!
