This was our first time since they changed to the new reclining seats! These are amazing and so comfortable, they are also a third of the price of the IPIC cinema in Kierland commons. We ordered food as well which to be honest was very...More

This has to be the worst decision AMC has made in recent years. How desperate are they for revenue that they will annoy customers watching a movie with servers walking in front and delivering smelly hamburgers and fries? A movie theater is not a restaurant!...More

Played a full 30 minutes of previews after scheduled start time. Overall place was dirty and bathrooms were deplorable. Go someplace else, there are plenty of other choices.

My family and I really enjoyed this Theater. The staff were very friendly and helpful. The seating was extremely comfortable for both the young and old. I would totally recommend this place for a relaxing and comfortable environment to take in a movie.

We went to a movie and got popcorn and soda--$17 for the food! Free refills, but sheesh. The recliners in the theatre are nice. And the location in the Desert Ridge area is very nice. The area is a jewel in the desert.

The theater is located in a strip mall with several restaurants and stores. There is a very large lobby area with a concession stand. As the name implies there are 18 screens. The theater has reserved seating with reclining seats. For some reason the AMC...More

We love being able to reserve our seats in advance so we don’t have to worry about getting to the theater early enough to get a good seat. The recliners are very comfortable. Great location close to a number of restaurants, food options, and shopping.
