WARNING: Motorized reclining chair crushed my iphone! At the start of the movie I took it out to silence it, as requested my AMC. By the time the movie was over, my phone had slipped in between the cushions of the chair. NBD, I thought at the time, and started searching... Five minutes later, I am shocked and horrified to find my phone mangled beyond repair, caught in the chairs drive mechanism. The glass was shattered, the protective case bent, the aluminum backing pinched in and forward. When I brought it to the apple store they asked me if I had run it over with a car! Nope, just watching a movie. I had no idea I was incurring this kind or risk, hopefully youll make a smarter choice before paying $13 to have your $600 phone crushed. The weekday manager says they arent responsible, so its MY fault the phone got crushed. Nice. I can only hope they dont let children use those seats. If a phone can get caught and chewed up by one of those chairs, Id hate to see what might happen to a childs hand.
I thought there was a mistake made when she told me the total was $24 for two people to see a (non) Imax or (non) 3-D movie on a wednesday night. I was wrong. I asked her if there any cool new features or things I could experience at this theater knowing that the price had gone up so much. She said "uhhhhmm... not really..." Then I found out how ridiculous there prices were for Imax or 3-D. Im very disappointed going into see this movie. I had a bitter taste in my mouth during the whole movie. I could not even enjoy it. Bye bye AMC. I will not be comming back. Not to mention if you cant find meter parking anywhere near the theatre you will have to fork over some big bucks at the Parking garage which should be included in there over priced tickets. Foolish to go there unless you have more money than common sense or you have no understanding of what the American dollar is worth today. Thank you AMC. (American Multi-Cinema). American? Really?

I bought an AMC Georgetown ticket through Fandango for a 9pm showing and ended up having to get 10pm instead. When I called the theater (Fandango wont change/refund your tickets), they told me that there was no 9pm showing. Since I had tickets that said "9pm" right in front of me, I insisted that there was one. "Well, its been canceled," the operator said. "We were going to tell when you come to the theater [sic]. Its either 8pm or 10 pm." Fortunately, I needed a 10pm ticket. But I cant imagine how a responsible owner thinks its OK to not tell their customers when a showing is canceled. All of those who didnt call for another reason, as I did, will have to wait for an hour. Those are terrible business practices. AMC Georgetown deserves no more than 2 stars and a good spanking! :)
My go-to theater in the city. Theyve been recently undergoing renovations to make room for a new bar and the nice reclining seats. The AMC theaters also usually beat Regal (at least locally) in terms of price, which is a plus. Biggest con to this location is the parking... The theater will validate your parking ticket so you pay a reduced fare, but it still runs about $9, which in my opinion, is a bit steep considering a movie cost $10+. Staff here is great - they have always been kind and helpful and I love the Stubs reward program, which will cover the "convenience costs" of purchasing your tickets online - even on Fandango!
I went there to watch the last men movie. I wanted to use a redemption coupon I received through a machine that turns your coins into coupons. I had originally $42 coupon. After watching one movie I had 30$ left so I wanted to use it. The cashier told me I had to have a stub card to use the credit I had left on the coupon....well I have never had a stub card!! I do not want to spend $12 to get that card and they should inform their customers in advance! I have actually paid for that coupon (I used my coins) so I should be able to use it without being required to pay 12$ for that card. I really dislike this buisness method!
Comfy seats aside, I find it hard to believe so many people are lining up to give 5 star ratings to this theater. Lines are long amd disorderly, and bathroom was gross. The tickets for an evening show after taxes are an outrageous 19 dollars, and basic soda and popcorn will set you back another 20. Parking in their garage is another 9. So if you were say taking a date and didnt want to look cheap youre talking 70 dollars for tickets, snacks, and parking. There are plenty of other theaters in the area that are easier to get to, cheaper, and more historic.
They have a bar inside, so you can drink in the theater! That deserves 5 stars alone, but they were fairly disorganized when we went during space week to watch space themed movies that were already released in IMAX. They passed out 3D glasses, but the movie was not in 3D and they initially thought it was cancelled before realizing it was just because the start time was moved back by 5 minutes. They also "assigned seats" for us, but another couple had those same assigned seats. All very minor inconveniences for an overall good experience.
The qr code scanners were broken when I went which meant about 80 people, myself included were waiting on one agent to get tickets we had purchased online. The staff seemed very new and didnt know what to do with promotional coupons in the concessions area, the girl waiting on me even forgot half of my order after I had paid her so I ended up spending around 10 minutes waiting to get the 1 popcorn I ordered to go with my drink. The actual theatre itself is great tho with the newest Dolby experience.
Great theatre, lousy processes. On Tuesday night "Stubs" premier customers are offered discounts. However, discount tickets must be purchased from a cashier, not on line or through a kiosk. To add time to these transactions, ticket holders must select their seats to complete the purchase. The result, long lines every Tuesday night. Ive raised the point with customer service who says theyre working on it. However, theres been absolutely no improvement. A picture of the lobby at 7:30 Jan. 24 below.
Most of the premieres Ive been to in DC have been at this location. Id think that should be a good thing, but the more I think about it, it really just means this place is always available. Regardless, of that I like this theater. Its never crowded, but the location is very DC urban cool. Its on the waterfront in Georgetown so you can walk to some of DCs best restaurants before the show. If you are up for a drive (and parking isnt as bad as youd think here), go here to see your next movie!
Expensive is the problem. Also the guy at the register charged us separate prices despite my friend using his military ID to get use the slightly cheaper tickets. Its nearly $20 for a standard ticket and hardly any less with any discount. I would strongly recommend you go elsewhere. On a positive note the seats are nice but require you look intensely for the buttons to move the seat as they do not light up immediately when you press, or at least think you pressed them.
