Where do I start? Well, the thing that bothers me the most about this place are the teenagers that hang around outside the theater acting stupid. Why do they do this? Seriously, did you come to see a movie or to waste your youth hanging outside, waiting to be seen in your trashy ghetto looking clothes? Then when you think you're going to finally enjoy your movie, these teeny boppers decide they also want to be part of the action by coming back and fourth making loud noises, texting and talking really loud. This is the worst movie theater ever!

I used to live about ten minutes away from AMC Gulf Pointe and I went there all the time. There's lots of kids and teens on weekend nights, but there are cops there to keep the peace. Parking was ample. The theater itself was nice, with comfortable reclining stadium seats. Now that I've moved across town, I kinda miss it.

This place has decent pretty much everything, but there is always one MAJOR problem; especially with this theater.
Why do people choose to arrogantly, selfiishly text and talk throughout the movies? I have told MANY people ""shhhhhhh"", and then get to a point where I am yelling ""SHUT UP"" in the theater, along with others who are sick of this stupidity. What else is there to do, because the whole ""Please don't add your own soundtrack"" (and the new advertisement with the famous director coming in to impede on your phone call at home... that one REALLY doesn't work on idiots; especially after seeing so many lame t.v. commercials, which I will get into later), because that is obviously not working.
USE USHERS. You can pay people minimum wage to sit in and hang out and say ""SHHHHH"" if people are talking, or ""please turn that off"" when people are texting; then going over to them if they continue to do so and ask them politely to leave. WHAT WOULD YOU RATHER DO: annoy one person because they are annoying about 30 people, or have the 30 people not want to come back the next week?? it's called Good Business to get those 30 repeat customers, who probably have more money to spend than the tacky talkers and texters, to come back the next week instead of them going, ""Nah; let's just wait until it goes to DVD"".
Even if ushers go in a movie for about an hour (or a half hour), then on to another one, then back for another hour or so it is not nearly as distracting going in and out (as people will do to use the restroom, get snacks, etc...) as it is for some childish people to not be able to shut up and feel the need to run their mouths, or their little fingers, for 2 hours. It is stupid and the reason why many don't care to go to any theaters anymore. PAY USHERS.
Now the commercials... First of all, you need to run more stuff instead of the same over and over before the movie. Secondly, NO T.V. COMMERCIALS AT ALL because they are annoying enough at home.
It's clean and the waiting line runs smoothly. It is a very young croud all the time and too many of them just hanging out and walking to the theatre and it makes it look unsafe. There is always an officer there and security to ease your mind a little. During the movie there seems to be a lot of loud talking and there should always be an usher around to control it, but there isn't and it's kind of annoying.

AMC 30 is flat out the King of all theatres! The building itself is beautiful and the seats are the most comfortable things. The theatres are really cold so you'll never get hot, just bring a sweater or something. The picture and sound quality is great. You'll have no complaints.

My first time to this theatre was very disappointing. The temperature of the theatre was extremely warm. The movie was shaking the entire film and was very uncomfortable to watch. After spending over $30 on two tickets and popcorn I left very unhappy. I will never go back.
