The door closest to the theater, on the side of the mall, always locks at night, so you suddenly cant get in. Other than that, its a theater. The staff are extremely unobtrusive. They dont hide, and they never say or do anything rude, but they wont go out of their way to help you either. The screens seem a bit small, but the seats are extra comfortable to make up for that, more leg room than most theaters. Theres two tiers of seats: A set on stairs, and a set closer to the screen. The closer to the screen set are basically neck-breakers, and are also tightly packed. Go for the stairs if you can. It is wheelchair accessible, even in the bathrooms, so thats good. Marcus himself is dorky in a cute, inoffensive way, and occasionally can be seen in the theater. (He also shows up right before the show on the screen to remind you to turn off your phone)
Large popcorn is best deal since you get a refill. They have days that offer discounts, like early bird specials and senior discounts. Staff is nice and helpful. Theater was decently clean but was very busy when we went so might not have had the staff to keep up. Theaters are a little smaller than some, but I think it makes a better sound and visual experience.
Restroom dirty, toilet seat falling off (was same last time last time l was there). On leaving, noted it was messy behind concession stand, even w/no customers at the time, and there was a pile of popcorn that had been swept up along one wall. Ticket prices good, but popcorn & pop $ $ way too high. Needs repairs and upgrade.
There are a few theaters in this area but Marcus Sycamore is the best. They have the most screens and the best seating. The concession lines are never long because there are enough employees working. Nice selection of movies, including all the new releases and special features as well.
A few friends and I were running late to a midnight movie last Saturday. The place was closed down and the gates were closed. The nice young man and his manager still let us in and allowed us to get popcorn. Great customer service. They totally made our night.
Very comfortable seats. Great sound systems in each theater. Very clean. Have been doing discount Tuesdays where movies are only $5 all day. Free refills on the biggest popcorn size. A great place on the east side of Iowa City to catch a movie
Great place to go see a movie. Go a Tuesday or Thursday if youre a student for $5 movies. Wouldnt waste my time on pricy concessions, but would sign up for a free rewards card, which gets you decent perks. Hassle free movie going experience.
I will not go to a movie in a theater where they show a political hit piece like DSouzas "Hillarys America". At least they could pair it in a double feature with something from the other side.
Im very disappointed that they have stopped running any Independent/foreign films. It has become just another place that only shows first run hollywood films that I dont care about.

Stadium seating. 3D, realD and regular theaters. Sometimes you can hear a movie nextdoor and that park sucks. But the audio and quality of video is great.
1 of 2 Marcus Theatres in the Iowa City area. This one tends to show the more obscure, less mainstream movies compared to Coralvilles Marcus Theatre.
Been there many times. They are offering some specials like Tuesday $5. Food prices are stratospheric. I download the app and didnt work well.
Good typical movie theater with comfortable tiered seating and a good selection on movie times. Helpful and pleasant staff and tasty popcorn.
Just saw Wonder Woman! love Marcus Sycamore Theater because of the stadium seating, its cleanliness, and great movie choices.
Good discounts on Tuesdays for everyone and on Thursdays for students. Staff is friendly and a good overall experience.
Seating was spacious and comfortable. (We were in Aud #3). Overall theatre was clean. Always enjoy going on $5 Tuesday.
Website needs updated! Arrived "on time" for a show that wasnt even playing AND yall werent even open. I expect more.
Seating is comfortable, there is a good amount of options for concessions, overall a good movie viewing experience.

Screens are way too dark. Sound is never loud enough. Good customer service though, so at least theres that.
Almost had the entire theater to ourselves. Ticket prices are good. Great movie selection.
Aside from the ridiculous prices for concessions, this is a fantastic smaller theater.
Small. Great deals and special events. Morning kids films. Love this litle theater.
Great theater. Never had a bad experience yet and my husband and I go here a lot.
Would be nice to be able to talk to a real person. Menu did not answer my question.

This is my go-to theater. Comfortable, clean, and well-designed. I recommend.

Outrageous concession prices, even for a theater. $13 for a soda and a popcorn.
Seats are not comfortable in cinema. Drinks and food are very expensive here.
Seats are very comfortable. Popcorn too high priced. $8 a bucket.
Best seats in town, and half price movie tickets every Tuesday.
If the popcorn price wasnt so high, Id probably go more often
Great prices if you go early bird, Tuesdays or Thursdays. $5!
Always clean, comfortable seats, nicely sized theaters...
The smaller theater feel was nice. Not so overwhelming.
Great theatre. I always go here instead of coral ridge.
Pleasant environment. Clean. Comfortable seats.
