Multiplex and megaplex theater chain shows mainstream movies in a plush setting.. In Short In 1920, Edward Durwood opened a single-screen picture house in Kansas City, Mo. Over the next 40 years, his company went on to pioneer the use of four- and six-screen theaters. In 1969, the company incorporated as American Multi-Cinema Inc. in honor of its signature multiplexes. Now, the company is known for theaters with 14 or more screens, as well as innovations such as armrests with built-in cup holders, stadium seating with LoveSeats, ATM-style ticketing and online ticket purchasing.
Comfortable auditorium seating but sound levels generally too high. Excellent selection of movies; however, located in a large suburban mall (megakids! megateens!) so don't expect many art house films. After the flick, stop in at Stir Crazy right next door for excellent Asian fusion eats. Good luck parking.
