Theater has been very outdated compared to other theaters however it appears they are changing. They now run 2 theaters (Theater 1 & 2) with leather power recliners, tons of leg room, and you can reserve your seat in advance (this is great for opening day movies where you can buy tickets out a week and be guaranteed a great seat without having to wait in a line for 2 hours). However, old theaters are still old seating, if your movie isn't in one of the newer ones Reading is a better choice. Food is pretty standard though they have been expanding. 2 1/2 stars for the older theaters 5 for the newer ones.... if they add some additional food choices and fix the old theaters they will have a gem.

Great theater in the area. Well run and clean. Seating is tiered so no one blocks your view. Standard movie food choices. Theater runs special events for certain movies that have mid-night viewings (usually first showing only).
