I live about 5 minutes from this theatre, and I decided to check it out a few weekends ago (usually I drive a bit further to AMC, but I dont know why i did that, but now Im glad I have). The prices were moderate for a Saturday afternoon showing. Not the most expensive in the area, but not the least expensive either. The chairs to not recline, and the arm rests are immovable, so definitely not the most comfortable theater experience. Snacks were expensive, but not the most expensive Ive seen in the area. Other than being a mediocre experience, the reason Im giving a 1 star review is because our projector broke/failed/no one started our movie, for about 20 minutes after the slated start time. I was seeing Dr. Strange on 11/12 at 1pm, and the screen froze on a Chevy advertisement for about 10 minutes at 1pm. Finally someone left the theatre and talked to a manager/clerk and they started working on it. At about 1:20, the previews started. Look, I get it. Youve probably got an irresponsible middle-school kid running the projectors. Or maybe the bulb burned out, or someone just forgot to start the show. It happens. BUT, you need to do something about it. When you make me sit in a movie theatre for 20 minutes staring at a Chevy logo while 80s funk/jazz plays, you cant expect me to leave happy. No manager came and apologized. No free drink/popcorn (there were only like 6 people in the theatre total!), no free movie tickets, no apology - nothing. Heck, you could have even given us a 1/2 off admission to draw us back and still make a profit on us! But no, we got stiffed. I wont be returning to this theatre, even though I could easily bike to this location. Ill keep trekking out to Arbor Lakes or Coon Rapids AMC, pay a little more, but have a good, enjoyable experience.
I saw movies there before and it was fine. Nothing special, but not bad. However, one time when I went with some friends to see a film, and though we had checked times for the films on the website, we got there and the time wasnt available. Not that they werent showing it at all, they just scooted the time back over an hour. We didnt have time to wait that long with the schedule for the day. We told them what their website said and they said "Sometimes we change the times. The website is approximate." Well good thing no one uses the internet then! Havent bothered to try to go back.

Only two groups in front of me.. two employees running counter.. not busy on this day at all.. but I waited in line for 10 minutes! Almost missed the start of my movie... to top it off there was one other family in my movie with two kids.. one had to be only about 2 years old making lots of noise.. who brings a kid that age to a Harry Potter movie!? Well they finally walked out about 30 minutes in.. I was about to leave myself and demand a refund. So not my best movie theatre experiance. Overall... clean and friendly emplyees.. speed up the service!
By far, this is the best theatre I have been to. I have been coming here for years. Not crowded at all, friendly and professional staff, and clean facility. Will continue and have recommended this location to family, friends, and fellow colleagues. Keep up the good work!
seats are very uncomfortable, limited choices for popcorn variety, also I have been there 2 times where the screen went black and they had to restart the movie, the last one it was restarted 3 separate times and never got to finish Terminator:genesys....
Went in 9/07/2017 to eatch the movie "It" got about 3/4 of thr movie & decided it wasnt for me. Asked for a refund & it was received, no questions asked! I recommend this movie theater for a last-minute flick because every other theater were sold out.
Just saw "Silence" tonight and really enjoyed this theatre. Super clean, kind of retro feeling, and all around good experience. I am not concerned about my seats not reclining....my word people. That is a nice perk, but not a mark against the theatre.
Saw Star Trek in the XDX theater. I was very impressed. The sound, the image quality, it was superb. Mixed drinks at the bar were a little high priced, but were very good. Small beer selection, but well maintained tap lines.
A perfectly fine place for watching movies. A little bit cheaper than say AMC, good food variety, and a fairly clean theater. It wont impress you, but it wont break the bank either. Overall a good place to see a movie.

This place is Awesome for the fact there is never a lot of people! There has been times where we had the theater to our self SWEET!!! The staff is nice and the seating is good I love this place great place to go!!
I enjoy going to this theater. It is always clean, and staff are always friendly. I like not having to book my seats online. The new theaters or remodeled theaters are really not my style. I enjoy old school.
Its nice and clean here. I got in for free with a paid resident of the group home that I work with. The seats arent so comfortable, but they are supposed to get new seating sometime soon.
Nice place. Most of the time not many people there, but makes it nice for watching movies when you can seat anywhere and not have to worry about people getting in and out or you having to.
We like it here. They are upgrading to the recliner seats so that will be a nice change. But until then its your typical no frills theater. Works for me!
Is okay but seems like it could use some upgrades. Reminds me of the place we used to go when i was a teen. .. yeah, that wasnt just last season...
No reclining seats, had reserved seats ahead of time and waited over 5 minutes to get checked in and tickets. Long lines for food and snacks.
Its a pretty good theater, but a little out dated. As of 9/26/17 theyre doing remodeling that scheduled to be done by Christmas this year.
Amazing staff and beautiful interior. The food is grade A, as well as the cleanliness. I would recommend this theatre to all my friends!
Decent theater with decent prices on movies and snacks. No recliner seats though. The theater was fairly warm, which I appreciated.
I like this theater. Its a comfortable and clean environment. And also thr ticket prices are lower compared to some other places.

No marquee - would be nicer if we could see what is playing when we drive by! Theater itself is ok, but often messy at night.
Nice and empty, just the way we like it. Great spot to watch a movie without the crowds. Really expensive food options though.
Great place for a movie. Live a mile away for 15 years so very convenient. Just the same its clean, friendly staff. Recommend!
Better price then showplace, lets run that overpriced crap hole into the ground one fairly priced movie tickets at a time!
Good, clean theater. Excited for the renovations that have been announced. Only complaint: Better control of the heat!
