This is a great movie centre with several theatres. It is in a shopping centre so if someone is not going to the movies then they can go shopping. Highly recommend to visitors or locals

Enjoyed the movie and being able to relax while watching the movie. BUT the main foyer ( not gold) was filthy and teens out of control. Each time we return we wonder what crazy to expect! Security needed.
