Yes, the theater is comfortable and the seats are recline. The air conditioning is on the fritz and it is quite warm in the theater, in addition to a loud buzzing noise that the staff says cannot be helped. The movie was scheduled to begin...More

This is my first choice for theaters in Arlington. The seats recline and you can reserve seats. There is usually parking in the lot outside which is convenient. Avoid the parking garage.

I was enthralled with theconcept of these seats, as they made great sense until I came with my children, who squarmed in them causing terrible sounds. So, these are great for adults but do not bring the kiddies.

Easy place to get to; parking easy; clean and not too crowed, especially during the week and in the afternoons. Snacks are fresh and good...popcorn delicious. Get away and enjoy the big screen!!!

Good selection of movies, comfortable armchairs. They need to come check rooms and bathrooms more often for indelicate clients.

Neighborhood [smallish in size] movie theater near the Courthouse Metro (i.e., parking not required and easy to get to). Super comfortable seats, large screen, excellent acoustics, normal movie theater munchies, good sized so not overwhelming with major mob scene crowds, just overall great experience.

The most comfortable movie house seats I know of are at Amc Courthouse Plaza 8. Buy your weekend tickets early.

Personally I do not care for upfront seats. The film appears grainy and one cannot see the “big picture” that close.
