    Reclining seats, 3-D :cool:, reserved seating, make it a whole new experience. The only negative was the fools who couldn't stay off their phones for 90 minutes.:mad:

    People in theaters annoy me, esp. since cell phones became so popular.

    Don't like 3D or those mega screens either, whatever they are called.

    They got some nice food offerings. No more just popcorn, candy, and soda. They got sandwiches, chicken wings, nachos, ice coffee.

    :jj: I made this thread when I saw what you posted about watching movies, Chuck. I love 3-D, when it's good. The recliners are so comfortable, and choosing your seats at home is such a great idea.

    I don't know if they offered that in this theater, but I saw that 1 popcorn and 2 drinks were like $19.99. :eek:

    I have a projector that shoots a 100" screen on my wall and a decent sound system, all that just so I don't ever have to go to the movies. Last movie I saw was Force Awakens and this little kid kept kicking the back of my chair through most of the movie, it reminded me why I never go to see movies in a theater.

    All the stuff advertised is only at certain Showcase Cinemas, not all of them.

    I can understand that, the glow from the phones was so annoying. But the seats, and the 3-D and the reserved seating, and the matinee price, I'd go again when they show something I want to see. I think these seats aren't even close enough for anyone to be able to kick them, btw.

    I love kids, but not all of them can behave at the movies. I think there was an infant at this one.

    I didn't used to have to look at little screens lighting up in front of me.

    I'll keep this in mind, I plan to watch all the new Star Wars movies in the theater, might be worth an extra couple bucks to get premium seating.
