OVERVIEW - 3.8 I probably come here too often. LOCATION - 4 Located next to the free is a nice location, but could be a little complex getting there without a little exploring and the help of a GPS. PRICE - 2 When my wife and myself come here the total come close to $20 each time, if I was patient enough to wait, I could just watch the movie on DVD/BluRay multiple times for the same price. I would recommend not buying your tickets online where possible, as they charge a $2 "convenience" (or maybe it is a processing) fee per ticket. A complete ripoff. Obviously the price of concessions are typically overpriced, just like the price of a movie ticket. PRODUCT/SERVICE - 3 After the several times Ive gone, there are problems maybe once every one out of fifteen times, usually theyre something small like mismatched audio, no visual, etc. It also seems like as of lately, the quality of the concessions has really diminished. POINTERS/PERKS - 5 Before even going to see your first movie here, I would strongly recommend getting your very own Megaplex Reward Card (and then register it online). Many discounts come from this card such as a free small popcorn, free small drink, $1 matinee price, etc. I would also recommend coming to see your movies here on Tuesdays as they charge $5 per adult. They also offer discounts on some concessions as well. If you have a child that is 3 or under, be sure to mention that theyll be sitting on your lap, because theyll charge you a childs price for a ticket! ($6.75) To me this seems like a total rip-off because my child wont even remember the movie. EMPLOYEES - 5 The employees are rather friendly, and I dont think Ive ever had any issues with them, as we come to see movies. For example, last night the guy that takes the tickets, asked us what movie we had seen as we were leaving (he was rather aged probably in his 60s), and chatted with us a bit.
This is the best local theater. My main gripe is that they dont have enough parking. On tuesday nights, you need to show up 20 minutes or more in advance of your show because you will need that time to find parking. If there has been a lot of snow, dont expect that they will plow enough to open the auxiliary parking either. I told the manager this and he just shrugged and said "it is what it is basically. His hands were tied, and he didnt care since the non=verbal communication was that his management didnt care. He said he would pass it on. The parking is the only real issue here, albeit a big one. IF you manage to find parking, inside you will find a state of the art movie theater. Huge, clean, comfortable seats, lots of concession options, and all the bells and whistles of a new theater build. Very nice , 4 of 5 stars until they fix parking.
We love this theater. Good sized parking lot which makes parking easier (I think only once have we had to park on the street for a movie). Wide variety of food and snack choices. Ticket purchasing is convenient (online, kiosk, or counter). The seats are comfy, D-Box is awesome, and the service is typically great. Screens are big with good pictures and the sound quality is great. Management is always willing to work with us when theres a complaint (had a couple noise issues with teenagers, but management is quick to handle it). My only real complaint is how long it takes to get food when you do food instead of just snacks. We try to plan ahead for it, but even then, most of the times weve ordered food, weve been late to our movie because of how long it takes, even if were literally the only ones ordering in the theater.
This is my favorite theater. Their popcorn is better than most theaters. It is usually fresh and has a great flavor. They also have a good variety of other food options - most of them adequate for a movie theater. The screens here vary in size. Their big ones are great. The small ones are too small for the money. But it is clean and usually has great service. I knocked off a star for the ridiculous 90s-style service fee when buying tickets online - which is also per ticket and not per transaction (as if each ticket cost them more money to process online). Come on. We all know that an automated ticket actually saves money over staffing ticket booths. It is clearly just a money maker they cant get away from. But I still love the place.
Nicest theater in Utah Valley (perhaps until the Megaplex in Geneva opens). Some screens are larger/newer than others. Buy tickets on official megaplex website if you want to compare different options. The "Mammoth Screen" is next door at the museum of ancient life. Its big, but is a different aspect ratio, so your Hollywood movie will only fill about half of it. Seems to use the same/similar projector as the other screens in the actual theater. Larger screen and same projector = a bit pixelated and not as bright. Show I saw was projected a bit high and I felt a bit like I had a front row seat. I wouldnt pay the extra money to see another film in there. I think one of the theaters off the west-most hallway is the largest and best overall.
I have been in the event planing business before and understand exactly what goes in to planing an event. That said, I planned an event here and rented out a theater. I worked with Cindy who was always available for any questions or concerns I might have. The staff here is amazing. Everyone is happy and willing to help. I had over 100 people show up and each one of my guests was completely impressed by the staff and how accomidating they were. Tyler Thiriot, General Manager, really took extra time and care to ensure that our event was perfect and exactly what we wanted. Tyler is a young and energetic GM that proved how motivated he is to make this Megaplex the best in either of the Valleys. Overall and amazing experience.
The service at the concessions is the worst I have ever seen. They charge $4.25 for 2 tiny scoops of ice cream.... and no Small cups or cones so they give me a big 32 ounce cup. For 2 scoops up at Jordan commons they charge only $2:50 . They dont smile or say thanks....and dont apologize .... Its the worst service I have ever ever experienced. There are huge pot holes in the road from the highway to the parking lot.... I ruined the axle and alignment on my car.....as i was driving near the parking lot ... I think thanksgiving point is on their way out of business as their service as hit rock bottom. It is not the thanksgiving point of yesterday, we always go up to Jordan Commons.
This is by far my favorite movie theater in the area because... 1. It is always spotlessly clean 2. They serve real food and have a dining area 3. They have D-Box vibrating/moving theater seats (for a small upgrade) 4. Its a nice place you actually want to hang out 5. The rewards program always gives us free stuff 6. It is a local biz and not a national chain so they care more 7. Occasionally they have special events like "dinner and a movie" for Valentines Day. The last time I went here with a friend we ate dinner and played board games for an hour before our movie started. Most movie theaters want you in and out ASAP but at this one the staff like that we were hanging out there.
