Hadn't seen an UMAX movie before so didn't know what to expect. Bought tickets went to seats but they sold us seats in the first row, not so good too close so we moved to the center and settled in. Movie started and we wondered why it was so fuzzy and realized they forgot to give us the glasses. after... More

I have been here many times, great place. They offer a point system to get a free ticket and free popcorn and soda, worthwhile if you go multiple times. Usually pretty clean. My only complaint is the armrests are getting worn out and you can feel the hard edge of the plastic because the foam is worn out.

Always a good time here. Only issue - the food court closes as soon as the last movie starts! Pretty clean for a theatre! The management is friendly. They don't offer military/AAA or any other discount.

While in Atlantic City in August we went to our first IMAX movie at the Tropicana. We were not sure what to expect but really enjoyed it. The movie playing was Suicide Squad. The Theater was nice and clean and not overcrowded. Admission was $16.00 but we expected to pay more for IMAX. They give you glasses and at first... More

We saw the new Independence movie here on this trip. It was easy to buy tickets at the counter. The theatre has comfortable seats, a handicap seating area accessible via elevator and food for sale. The attendants were friendly and helpful. The tickets were $16 each for an adult.

We've been here twice now. This is a nice way to spend family time in AC. The theater is clean and very modern. We bought our tix online at Ticketmaster and it's very easy to pick up at will call. My teenage boys enjoy it.

We went to see Captain America: Civil War 3D. It was fantastic, great seats, very comfortable and roomy. All seats have great view. Worth the $16.00 admission. Will certainly return.!

Totally love the wide, long screen. Love the wide and comfortable seats. Love that the seats lean back and are cushioned. Live how nice and clean the theater is and love how nice and friendly the staff is at the theater. The only down side is how hot it gets in the theater.
