Great Everything!!! by Mahendra V. at InsiderPages
Having obviously visited the AMC Empire, someone apparently finally said hey, we don't have to stick our guests into a glorified basement just because they're watching art films! So, we get fairly large screens, great sound, and stadium seating in a downtown art theater. The sound IS great here...even old movies (like The Goonies) sound great, and the Dolby Digital EX shows that they aren't afraid to spend money. Unfortunately, poor projectionists tend to leave the image unfocused.

Bathrooms are pretty clean, and I was satisfied with the concession selection, despite being overpriced. One standout was the employees...these seem like people I'd hang out with after the show, and seem to be having a good time doing their jobs.
I only wish they'd book their films a bit better...the Angelika obviously has some sort of deal worked out, which is unfortunate...this place is superior by far.
PROS: Great employees, Concessions, Sight/sound
CONS: Poor projectionists, Hard to find
