Foursquare Tips

  • Wednesday nights is movie watcher night which means FREE popcorn! :D
  • dinner and a movie. Tomatina (awesome italian food) is just across the parking lot.
  • It's true: they changed their policy and you can't take outside food in. Arrive early and eat before you go!
  • Awesome soda machine it has many flavor choices
  • Buy tickets using the automated machines rather than standing in line,
  • They enforced today the no outside food and drink rules. What sucks if you are used to bring something from the local Starbucks or Jamba Juice
  • Get your movie tickets from Costco. It's cheaper!
  • There's parking on the side of the theater as well as behind. Arrive early to ensure parking at this plaza!
  • Join the AMC stubs program for exclusive rewards!
  • Sign up for a Stubs card! Great rewards program. $10 rewards for every $100 spent. Free concession upgrades. Online purchase fees waived. And a digital library of all your movie stubs.
  • Tickets aren't cheap and you cant bring in outside food or beverages. (Invest in a large purse or man-bag to hide them.)
  • They show some Hindi movies now!
  • They are on fandango, so buy tickets in advance to skip the line. Also, try the gourmet popcorn- the mixed cheese and caramel popcorn for something different.
  • I've noticed that tickets are only $6 if you go before noon. At least they are during the week. Not sure about the weekend.
  • Consistent Captiview service!
  • Get there early since it seems they always run out of fountain drinks and when they do they'll let you bring in a drink - either that or pay $4.75 for a 1 liter bottle of water.
  • The new concession stands are amazing!
  • I wouldn't recommend joining the AMC Stubs program unless you see movies every month and actually buy concessions (I know I don't). Not worth it besides that. I miss MovieWatchers!!
  • They have occasional Bollywood movies here and they get packed. Arrive early to ensure parking, wait time, and sanity!
  • Make sure you get here early on a new release weekend because the staff has no idea what they're doing when it comes to organizing lines.
