This is a great theater. The only reason I go to this theater is for the Filipino movies with English subtitles that are shown quite sometime. It probably wont last long, however, due to a small Filipino population in some parts of MA. They would usually come out a week after it releases in the Philippines in other U.S. theaters (not just MA). Sad to say that Danvers is the only theater in Massachusetts and New England showing these types of films quite often since we live far from the Bristol County, so yes its quite the drive up north. Filipino movies (mostly by ABS-CBNs Star Cinema) I have seen so far at that theater are: -Barcelona: A Love Untold (with Kathryn Bernardo and Daniel Padilla; first time being at that theater; released around September of last year) -My Ex and Whys (with Liza Soberano and Enrique Gil; released this past February) -Cant Help Falling in Love (also with KathNiel; released this past April) -Finally Found Someone (with Sarah Geronimo and John Lloyd Cruz; which we just saw last night). When me and my mom saw Sarah G. & JLCs film last night, we were the only ones in the theater, which was awesome and it rarely happens at any movie theater. It was a good film though. From up above mentioned, the first two, not too many people, and the third, lot of people. Barcelona isnt really the first Filipino movie Ive watched in the U.S. with English subtitles, but the other ones I saw from a couple years ago were in New York and Connecticut. The seats are comfy and in theater 5 we were in (same auditorium where we watched KathNiels latest film), are not that dirty. Food and drinks are a bit pricey, but the Stubs rewards make up for it. Staff are ok, but not as friendly as the ones at my local Regal in Taunton. Will wait for the renovations to be completed and hopefully well be back for more Filipino films to watch with recliners next year.
I like the this place because the staff are great most of the time and they are very helpful. The movie prices are set to standard and the popcorn is delicious. I would really like to see some innovation in the chairs and space in the movie theater itself. The seats are still old-school from the 1990s and most showcase cinemas and other AMCs have recliners with alcohol. Im not much of a drinker but occasionally it would be nice too see a movie with friends and have the option of a real drink with more food selections. Also, the movie passes you can get for discounted prices need to be updated. They have three silver, gold, and Platinum, which give different discounts for 3D, and standard tickets, and they are not clearly written on the tickets so if you use them often you will know what theyre worth. If not and go once in a while like myself, you may think you do not need to spend extra cash but surprise you do! Overall its a good experience the staff that acts unprofessional should be replaced. More food options should be available with a bar-like setting for adults but also cater to families and children. Seats should be updated to be more comfortable and spacious.
The picture is always too dark. I did some research and it seems that many theaters run the projectors on economy mode in order to save money. The bulbs cost close to $1,000 each. By running in economy mode they can make the bulbs last twice as long, and save on electricity. But economy mode results in a darker picture. Ive heard people complain that they make movies too dark-looking now. Its not the movie makers, its the sleazy theater chains! My rough calculation is that this saves them between 5 cents and 20 cents per customer. Thats insignificant when you are reaming customers for an average of $12 per ticket, plus hugely expensive food. If you are mad about this do two things - 1. post and write to AMC about it; and 2. Dont buy any food or drinks = food and drinks is where AMC makes its money. Boycott that and it will get their attention. And you wont miss a movie, youll just miss a load of junk food you probably didnt need anyway.
This is the "go to" theater for most of our popular movie viewing. Its clean, well managed and convenient. Stadium seating is our preferred choice and with many area theaters going to the recliner seating which we find uncomfortable, this works well. Its a wonderful place to take our granddaughter and her friend to see a kids movie, many other families come there. The staff is friendly and helpful, and because its in a smaller mall the crowds and parking manageable. Plus theres a Paneras in the mall and Kellys Roast Beef with the areas best clam chowder at the parking lot entry. Prices are typical and matinee and senior pricing is not as favorable as other theaters Ive been to, maybe that will change.
This is what (non-independent) movie theaters are like these days, sticky, trashy, expensive drinks and popcorn. Nothing terrible, just not a great or exciting experience. I was here last weekend to see Joy with my mom. It was also... Star Wars weekend. Our theater was in the same hall as SW, so we had no idea whether we had to stand in line or not--then we saw the signs that were waist high (no one could read them...) saying it was the line for SW. Gah! We got our tickets on Fandango in advance which worked nicely. We skipped the (LONG) lines for the snacks and just found our seats and waited for the movie to start. I love trailers but my mom thought there were too many.
The most filthy theater I have been to in a long time... I will not go back to sit in the dirty seats, walk on the floor that has not been vaccumed and get grossed out looking at the back of the seat in front of me with what looks like old gum and slime caked on. THE MOST GROSS PLACE...AND YES, I LOOKED AROUND FOR A CLEANER SEAT. What is the matter with this company, do you not think anyone cares about the environment while "out at the movies" ? It is no wonder why the trend is to stay home and watch movies on TV. You couldnt pay me to go there to watch another movie. I had to pick at least one star to post this review but 1 star is 1 too many.
I just saw the 6pm showing Star Trek Beyond at the AMC Cinema in the LIberty Tree Mall in Danvers, MA. Warning, wear your hazmat suit if you decide to see a movie here. This place is consistently filthy. Popcorn all over the floor - everywhere. Trash bins overflowing. The Mens room floor was slippery, especially by the urinals. This theater has never really been clean, but what I saw tonight was positively disgusting. With all those people working what is primarily a self-service concession, cant they even sweep the floor? I cant imagine how dirty the actual cinemas are, since its so dark, it probably better that we dont see how bad they are.
What I really enjoy about this location is that it is integrated into the Liberty Tree Mall, so you get there a little early, buy your tickets, do a little shopping, watch your movie, and then head somewhere afterwards for a bite to eat. With 20 screens, there are plenty of available options ranging from the latest kids movies to more adult-oriented films. Movies also tend to run a little longer there; I caught the last James Bond flick there after it had disappeared from every other area theater. The seating is comfortable and plentiful and the staff is friendly and courteous.
