Foursquare Tips

  • Brazenly walk in with snacks from outside. Damn the man.
  • Pre purchase tix from costco for cheap. Get there early on weekends to make sure you can get a good seat.
  • This is where I see movies, that is closer to my home.
  • Biggest movie has the smallest theater. Dissappointed!
  • Small theatre, small screens. They do take Fandango though, so buy your tickets on the app and bypass the lines.
  • Smaller screens but sure to get a ticket for blockbusters on same day too and lots of free parking space near the theater and under the caltrain station. Great downtown to have dinner before movie.
  • The pre show advertising is too loud.
  • nice seats.
  • What with the big bright light during the previews?
  • Give yourself plenty of time to park and buy tickets on Saturday nights.
  • You can purchase tickets through Fandango or Cinemark apps/online on website and just bring the QR-code/confirmation code.
  • Century should invest in this downtown theater rather than building some new theater at Hillsdale.
  • Buy tickets from Costco for $8. 32% cheaper.
  • Stupidly small theater!!!! If you don't get here early, you'll end up in the front row!
  • This is certainly NOT your mainstrean SK-type cinema
  • The occassional rumbling is not sound effects from the film next door, but Caltrain slamming through town.
  • FREE PARKING on Sundays! Add the "early bird" show, and it's almost affordable to go to the movies!
  • Go out through the exit near the screen to avoid the crowd!
  • bring your own food! food here is awful!!!
  • Early bird weekend showings a bargain day out if you have early-rising kids.
