I made the drive all the way out to this theater to check out the Dolby Cinema and see The Martian in HDR. I was really excited to check out the HDR projection because I have heard so many good things about it. Huge disappointment. The red safety lights on the floor shine onto the screen so every dark scene had the bottom corners illuminated red. I walked out and spoke to a manager. He came into the theater and admitted he saw what I was talking about. After the movie I went and asked him about it. He said there was nothing he could do and gave me a free AMC pass. I also emailed AMC and Dolby but never heard back from them. Everything else about this place is pretty nice but there is no way I would go back because of the lousy image on the screen.

The family and I really love this theater. Note: Make sure to buy your tickets online before heading over to ensure your seating preference. Also make sure you can make the show! Its almost impossible to get a hold of someone from AMC customer service by phone to cancel any tickets that you ordered online. This can be a real inconvenience if you live 20 minutes away from the theater like I do. The reclining seats are still an enjoyable experience and because of this, it is the only theater we go to now. Like my comment?

Love the idea of this, the great people and the seats and being able to reserve them is great. I only gave 4 stars because they keep making the theatre more and more unfriendly for handicap people. I use a walker and having to walk back and forth to get butter is a problem for me. Also, they just removed the two seats in the lobby where you could wait for someone else. I need a handicapped seat and I have noticed that many of them are now being reserved by perfectly able bodied people. What can be done about that?
Movie viewing from the future! The seats are comfortable, and the fact that theyre adjustable means you will be able to see well, even in the front of the theater--which is lucky, since thats where I always end up! It seems like people reserve their tickets so far in advance, that when I get around to it (1-2 days before showtime), Im in the first or second row.
The seats are great, no denying that. The problem with the seats being so comfortable and alcohol being served is that people think theyre in their living room and cant shut up after a drink and the perception of space. The annoying people and the high ticket prices makes this place just okay. Id rather wait to see the movies at home than come here.
Unbelievable how expensive this place can be! Had green tickets but because it has DOLBY sounds now they up charge you!! Small popcorn and soda 17bucks! They have made this place unreachable for a family of middle income class unless i can think of they having to save for a "night out"
Drove all the way out here and stood in line forever to find out that unlike any other movie theater Ive ever been to, they have assigned seats and no one in my family could sit remotely close together. This place makes me very thankful for the normal AMC theater back in my town.
Next generation movie experience with a full bar, stadium seating with very large electric reclining leather seats, and seat reservations right from an app. No longer have to arrive early to get a great seat. Just buy in advance and show up when the movie starts.
My experience is always 5 stars over there. I got premiere membership and the nice app to buy movies. It makes it so easy and convenient. The whole ambiance of theater and the seats make it so comfortable. I also bring my own blanket to the movies.
I love going to this place. I have the AMC stub rewards and always been buying the movie tickets ahead of time using the mobile app. Just show your digital ticket and you are in! People are great and very good selections of pop. I cant complain.
Very comfortable place to watch a movie. Extreme stadium seats provide excellent views and recliner chairs. The only downside is the added cost involved and the difficulty finding assigned seats together with your group close to showtime.
Comfortable seats, spacious, great sound/overall experience. I know movie theaters have gotten expensive but the experience you get, at least here, is definitely worth it. Definitely one of (if not the best) theaters in the north shore.
Absolutely love the comfort and size of rooms. Not crowded even when full. Seats recline and are more like comfortable couches. Middle arm rest lifts up. Price is worth it. Never want to see a movie anywhere else again.
This is a very nice facility but unfortunately its poorly managed. Soda machines that dont work, empty condiment dispensers, no toilet paper in bathrooms and enough litter on the lobby floor to sink a ship.
Awesome!!! I watch a lot of movies at movie theaters and I always have trouble staying comfortable. Here you get to pick your seats out online and they are electric recliners with your own cup holder!
For a movie theater, this is the luxury experience. The seats are comfy, leather recliners with ample room away from your neighbors. Sound system is top notch. Pricier, but you get what you pay for.
Great seats if the movie is horrible youll probably fall asleep they are so comfortable... lol Its an awesome theater. Coke freestyle, free refills on coke n icee, add your own butter on popcorn.
Love the reclining lazy boy style seating which can be reserved ahead of time. Will never go back to traditional seating theaters again. Not to mention the fact that this AMC has a bar as well.
Is this place even open anymore???? I was in the area for a mtg and thought Id catch Star Wars 3D. But at the 1pm showing the place is still dark and locked up
The stadium seating makes it one of the better theaters in the area. Also able to reserve your seat prior arriving if you order your tickets online.
I didnt like how the theater was way to loud and the butter that you put on your popcorn smelled like pure fat it was terrible and very nauseating.
This place is fancy. It has nice reclining seats and big screens in every theater. They do assigned seating so buy those tickets ahead of time.
Just WOW! The whole experience was awesome! The seats recline, seem like there is base underneath you, and they vibrate with the sound.
very nice place, i love seating. I dont like that you have to take an elevator or escalator to go up, overall great experience altough
The movie theater is great. The new courtesy fee as well as other fees for purchasing tickets early is annoying. 3 tickets cost $43.
Had a wonderful time at the AMC Hawthorn 12 today. The love seats were great, the staff was helpful and the food was good
Nobel ned hi
It was easier to hear the rustling of the cheap popcorn bags,than hear the movie. 5 stars for the seats tho.
Best for couple seats. Lovely seating arrangement and you can buy alcohol in theatre and take to screens
