A Megaplex in a Megamall which opened April 3, 1998.

The theater itself is OK. All of the auditoriums have stadium style seating but some are kept up better than others. If you are unlucky enough to see a movie in one of the smaller theaters, the screen can be dark and or torn. In the larger auditoriums where the BIG films premiere, the conditions tend to be a little better.
This is NOT a very memorable place to see a film. It’s prime objective is to get as many people in and out as fast as possible and to clean the theaters as well as possible without delaying turnaround. Service from the staff runs the gamut from mediocre to borderline rude to outright displays of hostility (I had an attendent at one of the concession stands act so nastily to a customer on line ahead of me that I got off the line…another attendent who came into the theater to sell popcorn and such from a cart was actually talking to a friend on his cellphone connected with an ear and mouth piece. The whole time he was getting my stuff, he was just chatting away!!)
The thing that makes this theater OK is that the largest auditoriums are awesome and the sound quality is very good. Saw the final installment of “Lord of the Rings” here last year and it was incredible. Don’t waste time seeing smaller, art house fare here. You’ll end up in the smaller theaters that are not kept up as well.
The theater probably posts decent boxoffice numbers but it’s management is doing the least to maintain it and the staff there act as if they could care less. You’ll get a better reception at your local McDonalds. In 2015 Screen 10 was converted into an IMAX theatre.
