Talk about an idea that should have been squashed at inception... idiotic beyond measure... allow me to list the points: 1) seats are HORRIBLE. NO support feels like a beanbag chair. And people are supposed to eat in these? 2) no armrest! Instead, theres a plastic box secured to where the armrest should be for ketchup bottles. KETCHUP BOTTLES! INSTEAD OF AN ARMREST!? 3) why the hell would you place a 12" shining fork directly beside my head? What in blazes makes you think that a bright white LED light glowing in my peripheral vision helps the movie-going experience, in ANY way? Not to mention, bright orange LEDs lining the isles for the staff to walk through. Basically, light a flashlight right beside your face for a great AMC experience at home. 4) servers should NOT BE SERVING DURING THE MOVIE. Who decided that the servers should be in the aisle, standing upright, taking orders on super-bright cell phones/tablets DURING THE MOVIE? 5) dishes and cutlery are porcelain and metal. Come on, AMC... you couldnt figure out how to incorporate plastic, SILENT cutlery into your scheme? Missed many great sound effects and dialogue due to scraping of plates with forks and knives and the subsequent clean-up of said cutlery, again, DURING THE MOVIE. Greatest bit... the girl that decided to stand in front of me in the last 4 minutes of the movie. THE BEST BLOODY PART WAS RUINED BECAUSE THE STAFF COULDNT FIGURE OUT TO STAY OUT OF THE AISLES UNTIL THE END OF THE MOVIE. Even if someone calls you to their seats, if theres less than 15 minutes left, forget them and allow the audience to enjoy themselves. 6) I decided to order a ginger ale before the show. The bartenders are so out of touch with non-alcoholic drinks that dont come in a twist-off bottle or from a tap, that my beverage consisted of 90% syrup. It was THICK. And I couldnt get that changed at my seat because I bought it in the lobby. Cue the $5 water to erase the taste of sugary-poison that took 10 minutes to get to me. 7) The movie says 18+. If someone walks in with a toddler, dont let them into the movie. Come on, people! A crying kid in the back of an adult-only movie? Are you serious?? Last but definitely not least, 8), the pervading scent of stale urine throughout the ENTIRE building. Except the mens bathroom. That smelled fine. Basically, you want to throw away $16 plus more for over-priced fare and a horrible movie experience? Be my guest. But just know that you can reproduce this fantastic night at home with some old pillows on your couch, a crying child, an old diaper on the coffee table, playing ambient restaurant noises on your stereo and a flashlight taped to the side of your face.
Terrible. I was going to be in Ft. Lauderdale for one evening, and it happened to be the premier night for Beauty & the Beast, so I decided to order a movie ticket for the closest theater from Fandango. Had I realized it was a "dinner theater," I would have gone elsewhere. Someone else described the servers as "deer in headlights" and I think thats apt. Vacuous, vapid, vacant. I was in an end seat and the other seats in my row were taken up by a family. They ordered food, I didnt. The server kept trying to hand me food. The first couple of times I didnt realize that the people next to me had ordered food, and I politely told them they had the wrong person. They finally came, during the movie, and rudely hissed that they checked and it was the correct row. Thankfully, the teenage girl next to me (and everyone else) saw the bit of commotion and took the food. I said, "Oh, I am not with them." Now, I am a tanner-complected brunette. The family was pale and blond(e). Im not sure why this needed pointed out. More food came, and again the server tried to give it to me. Two or three times for food & refills, I had to tell the server that I was not with the family. I finally snapped and said, "Youve been told multiple times that I am not with them and this is NOT my food. You CANNOT hand orders to a random person on the row who didnt even order it and assume that its fine." Finally, FINALLY the server started going to the other end of the row and handing food off to the dad. Between the 8-10 disruptions of this nature and the SCREAMING child in the front row, who was perhaps 2 or 3--FAR too young to be at a film, much less a bloody PREMIERE, but whom the manager refused to eject even after multiple people around them complained, I had a miserable time. I went and saw the movie again once I returned home and had the experience that I SHOULD have had the first night after waiting 3 years for the release.
Theyve completely renovated this theater. The entrance where you used to buy concession snacks is now a full bar with cocktails, beer, whatever. And tables. The theaters have been renovated to fit large, cushy chairs. Some theaters have reclining seats - you need to check which theater youre going into though. It offers a full menu - mostly bar food, nothing too fancy. Several different kinds of burgers, noodle bowls, other sandwiches, chicken fingers, milk shakes, and of course the usual movie snacks like popcorn, candy, and soda. However, the popcorn only comes in one $8 size so if you only want a tiny bag you cant get it. My bf and I cant finish this popcorn even if we havent eaten. Its enormous. Same with the candy - its only one huge size for something like 7 bucks or something. And you really cant see a movie you care about here. It needs to be a movie youve previously seen and youre rewatching, or some action flick you wont be upset about missing parts of. When they bring the check, they bring them at the end when the story is being wrapped up. Its not the servers fault, they try to be discrete and quiet and they duck, but theyre still moving about the theater and talking to people. If your bull is wrong you need to take care of it during the movie. Not a great system. I also wish it would be more like the Alamo in Texas where they remove people for using phones. I was next to a lady who had a full on phone conversation next to me in the theater. Again, not the theaters fault necessarily but it would be nice if more theaters enforced the no phone rule. In conclusion - its a great theater for something like The Avengers, not so great for Nocturnal Animals. Good bar food selection, but super huge and expensive popcorn. Some theaters have reclining seats, all theaters have cushy seats. Rock on.
