Geeky Movie Theater

As previously posted Ann and I saw Inception at a cool new AMC Theater here in town.
I loved the place for a few reasons:

Firstly, we did not have to sit three feet from the screen like we do at most theaters we have frequented in the past. As you can see from this photo of Ann watching the previews, the wheelchair designated section was at the top of the seating area. I really enjoyed not being so close to the movie. Theater owners take note! We have now been to the other side and like what we saw.

Secondly, the viewing was unobstructed, the sound was great and the seat effects were very cool - even the wheelchair areas shook with the movie. We both enjoyed being part of the flick. Not sure how this would play out if the movie was a more sedate one.

Lastly, the place served real food and drinks. They have a restaurant incorporated into their space with a decent kitchen. We did not try this feature but may in the future.

All in all it was a great experience. The AMC Mainstreet Theater is a part of the new downtown Power and Light District so you can frequent one of the great eating spots after the movie. Maybe next time we will try a 3D flick? Have you been to any of these newer theaters lately? Any good or bad experiences you'd like to share?

  1. We have a more indie/arty local theater that I am dying to try.

    I saw all three Lord of the Ring movies (the two extended versions and the final one in theatrical release) as a marathon in a movie theater much like you describe. It was AWESOME.
