The theatre was ok on the inside with a fairly nice environment. It was hard to find the front of the building though, I guess due to the parking situation. I don't pay for movie parking if I can help it. I would choose another theatre because I feel that parking should be part of the normal business model, just as it is for any grocery or home improvement store. So when I visited this theatre on a weekday evening for a free preview movie screening, I parked about two blocks away in the shopping strip on Richmond, probably near the tanning salon or Chipotle's. I parked in the row away from the strip center, toward the street to avoid taking a closer space for customers of that center. There was ample parking, but I realize that all the movie theatre patrons could not fit here, nor should they have to walk half a mile or more to see their movie. After reading the other reviews here, I guess I am very lucky that my car was not towed. Where exactly are people parking that they are getting towed? And what day of the week? Although I parked at the shopping strip center on Richmond, the Costco shopping complex on the other side of Richmond has pretty much unlimited parking. But of course it is not actually fair to park at another business's property; the theatre should provide its customer's parking onsite. If somebody at the theatre is still conniving with a tow company to unethically take people's cars from nearby vacant lots on Sundays (unless there is signage specifically prohibiting such parking), rather than pay several hundred dollars for the impound fee, I would prefer to go out and buy a junker car and park it there intentionally, and have it rigged with an explosive surprise for the tower. Ok, maybe that is too over-the-top like a Hollywood special effect. I would not want to injure anybody. Maybe it should simply be rigged with an electrical shocking device and/or an indelible ink spray and/or something to cause the tower's tires to get flats. I certainly don't advocate any illegal activity, such as spying at a distance and then sniping to shoot out their tires, etc., but hey, mess with the car at your own risk of learning a lesson!

Went to one of the new Extreme Digital showings of Harry Potter. Tickets were $14 each!!! fI figured I would give it a try and my family ae nuts about Potter so we bit the bullet and shelled out the coin. After popcorn and drinks we were talking over a hundred butcks to take a family of five out to the movies... This had better be the best movie ever. I was less than impressed. the extreme digital was no better than standard film. It was much better than standard digital but that is not hard to do. What really upsets me is that we the consumer are really getting scammed here. Digital projection does not require the manufacturing of millions of feet of film to be distributed to each cinema for viewing thus the production/distribution costs to the movie companies and movie houses are significantly lower... As yourself "How much does it cost to download a digital movie to your Iphone?" I realize that the retrofit of the projection/sound equipment costs money but that is chump change to what they are saving by not having to produce film copies. Why aren't these savings being passed down to the consumer? Instead we are actually paying twice as much for what cost the theater a fraction of what it used too... Needles to say, loved potter...Hated being robbed of my hard ewarned money for a picture quality that was margianlly better than standard digital and no better the old school film.
Moviegoers with savoir-faire can catch an independent or foreign flick at this theater, built in 1939. The downstairs theater is grandiose and baroque, all heavy red-velvet curtains, patterned carpet and ornate carvings, with moderately comfortable seats. The two upstairs screening rooms are tiny and cramped; even the most diminutive person will want for more space. Two concession stands carry standard fare, as well as herbal teas, gourmet coffee, Ben & Jerry's ice cream, high-end candies and vegan cookies. A funky cafe-like hangout next to the upstairs concession is painted in folk-art style and includes all sorts of alternative reading material. Tip: Catch special midnight movies on Friday and Saturday nights.
I had a pass to see a movie. The guy at the outside ticket window spent five minutes trying to issue me a ticket, then gave up. He couldn't figure out how to turn on his speaker, so he had to lean down to speak through the small hole that they slide the tickets through. He told me to go inside to the customer service desk. I did, and handed my pass to the woman there. She got snippy with me, told me the pass wasn't accepted there, but she'd comp me. ???????? The pass was definitely supposed to be honored by AMC theaters, but since I was getting in anyway, I quit arguing. Unpleasant and unhelpful employees. The theater itself is clean and spacious.
The lines were super long and the people in them did not look friendly. The manager got crazy on my bf and I because he didn't have his I.d. We are clearly of age and I showed him my own. After fussing with us back and forth he finally decided to give us a refund. I was explaining my receipt to him and he was like "you know what guys just go okay". He obviously didn't want to lose the money. In the theathers there was way to many people walking around and someone kept kicking my seat from behind. I feared that if I ask them to stop that they would attack me. Over all I like the place it was a pretty amc theather but it sucked.
I prefer this theater over Edwards-you don't have to pay for parking and there aren't AS many teenagers floating around. I think they still honor student discounts, but last I heard it was just Thursday nights-don't quote me on that though. Nice seats, good selection of (overpriced) candy and snacks. Sometimes it takes a while to get through the ticket line, but they do have automatic machines on the side that you can use to buy your tickets.
This is the pre driving years hangout for all teenagers in Houston-beware, they take over the place. No student discounts on weekends, and you have to pay for parking in the garage. The theater is nicer than most of the theaters in Houston and you can preorder or order through Fandango. Regal cards get you free movie tickets and free snacks, but those vouchers do expire. I actually prefer going to Dunvale, but don't mind this theater at all.
Theaters and restrooms are always clean. Movie theater popcorn is excellent. Movies are always first rate. Personnel are friendly, area is safe, parking is close. Yes, we have to pay but we are inside the loop in Houston. Kids go on Friday night so don't go on Friday night when they attend. Pick one of the other days of the week. Good specials on concessions and movies if you sign up for their frequent attendance card.
I love dollar theaters! More relaxed, more casual, and prices are much, much better. Yes it is a little dirty and a little dank, all dollar theaters are, at least this one isn't in a bad neighborhood. Has good video games and the staff are pretty friendly. I normally don't even look to see what is playing or the times, just go. Something is going to be worth a buck and I can play games till the show starts.
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.
