The theatre is beautiful but the employees made the experience over the top! While expecting that a theatre tour would not be possible for our foreign guest due to our poor timing, Michael and other staff made it possible. Being a movie buff our guest was ecstatic! The theatre tour and seeing the Avenger costumes up close were exciting but she was so impressed with the kindness of the employees and the stories shared. An experience she will long speak well of! Thank you!

Visiting from Ireland and wanted to get the American movie theatre experience.. what a place, steeped in history. Really comfy seats in the balcony area. Popcorn and drinks perfect, help yourself to butter and salt. Overall great experience.

First time we saw a movie from the balcony. I like it! Came for the Black Panther Fan Event. Unique!

We went to see a Wrinkle in Time and did not expect to be greeted at the door with raffle tickets. When we entered the theater it had elegant old school settings with a live organ player center stage. He was playing Disney classics. As we prepared for the film a master of ceremonies came out and greeted everyone. He explained where the restrooms were and told everyone about the curtain show and the museum below the theater that featured the Wrinkle in Time paraphernalia. He then proceeded to do the raffle and the winner came up to collect his prize.

The curtain light show was beautiful and at the end confetti dropped down from the ceiling and a large bouncing ball. Everyone was excited about hitting the ball across the aisles which tied into the end of the curtain show. The interactive themes made it even more exciting. We received commentary and introduction from the writer/director and the movie began.

What an enjoyable experience! I recommend families or anyone that is looking to experience a different movie adventure.
