Overrated and under delivered. The food arrived late and was not great. The service, other than at the ticket counter, was below par. The theatre was freezing cold. Overall, other than the seats, not a great experience.

We had issues with purchasing our tickets online. Jaxon who served us helped us figure it out and get to our movie within minutes. Very helpful and we were very satisfied with the service.

Omg, wat a film wat a night. Sit back and relax while watching a film in recliner leather chairs while waiters bring you food and drink, if we had this in the uk I’d gold class every time I went to see a film. Awesome

I have gone to this cinema so many times, it feels like another home to me. I love watching movies there with my friends. Because I watch movies there, is the reason I want to be an actor! I love this cinema so much!
