What a bottle neck, hard to get in during busy times and parking is horrible. If you get there early and leave late it's not bad, but just isn't my favorite place to see a movie. It's always so packed and the help see like they are doing a job they don't really like.

After the movie though there are several places to eat and hang out. This way you can wait out the mad rush leaving after the movie gets out.

PROS:
CONS: Busy, hard to get to, not very friendly

Mercado AMC 20 is a typical movie theater, but I wouldn't choose Mercado AMC 20 to be my absolute favorite movie theater. Why, you question? Well, the seats are too old and not too comfortable.

This is your typical movie theatre. The only downside is that parking is horrible at night and on the weekends. I don't always feel safe if I am alone because you have to park so far away.

What I love about AMC is they have a student discount, so there's no need to watch matinee. They have comfy seats that are clean and a good selection of movies to choose from. The chairs alternate between love seat and rocker, so you can choose to either cuddle up w/ your date, or be comfy when you go there with friends.

Amc Mercado is a great place with one of the best audio fittings in any AMC. this place has about 20 screens. Great place to catch your next fix on your next date. Amazing nachos and pop corns. The only concern that the management wanted to put 20 screens but where they went wrong is that the rooms and seats are a little cramped

PROS: 20 screens

Mercado AMC 20 is kind of big theatre, it has cozy seats. The food is really good; It is very clean and organized. They have 2 small arcades here so kids can play before they come watch a movie.

One of the best in the bay, this one and Century 25 are rivals since they are both really big and have tons of shops and eating places around them in a packed shopping center. The people that work there are very cool, they always let peopleback in to use the bathroom or the phone even if they are done with watching the movie. The seats are big and long and the rooms are large. The popcorn is delicious; I buy it every time with a huge cup of coca cola.

PROS: good chance of running into a friend or making one
CONS: prices keep going up, even with student discount

An awesome theater, their screens and sound quality are not to be compared to any of the other theaters in the area. Featured flicks are shown until you are satisfied, and then some. They don't take the movie out due to lack of space. The timing is excellent and almost always on the dot. If you can't make one showtime due to a 15-20 minute difference, two timetables leave a variety of options at your disposal. Their customer service has an 6-8 chance of being less than what is desired.

PROS: Punctual, excellent sound and quality.
CONS: Customer service

Mercado holds fond memories for me. I used to go here practically every weekend during my youth, especially in high school. The parking lot gets really jam packed on the weekends, so I suggest parking across the street at Mission college. But, pay attention to the signs and make sure you don't park on a restricted day. The cops love ticketing here. Lines can get long, but it's always fun to people watch while you're waiting. If there's a lag time before your movie starts, there's tons of places next to the theater to grab a bite or snack on ice cream. The theater is nice and large inside with an arcade. Security has gotten strict, but a few years ago it was easy for kids to hop in and out of different screens.

PROS: lively, fun, big
CONS: there's such a thing as TOO many cool teenagers

This movie theatre is so busy all the time, it's starting to look old. The theatre tends to be messy and the seats are not the most comfortable. The parking lot is also a bit of a mess.
At least it's in a central location.

Mercado is a HUGE movie theatre. They have a lot of movies playing usually, and usually a good selection of playing times. They are typically priced, with outrageously expensive food. They have a lot of parking, but it gets easily crowded. They have food options around to eat before, such as Tomatina, and a Ben and Jerry's just a few stores away for after the movie!

If I am going to see a movie in the theater, this is the place I prefer to go to. It is HUGE and therefor gets pretty crowded on the weekends or when a big new movie is released, but they have so many screens that you can usually get in to whichever one you want to see. The parking can be a hassel, since it seems that the planning of it wasn't all that well thought out. The surrounding retail stores are very nice as well and there is a large variety of restaurants around I case you want to eat before your show starts.

The theater itself is very nice and plush. The seating is very comfortable and almost always very clean. The restroom facilities are nearly always clean. I don't know about the men's room, but the ladies room is huge, which is nice when a few movies let out at once.

Mercado is a great theater, all are stadium seating and large screens. They always have the best movies out here. You can expect to have any opening movie here.

But as a result there are a ton of kids here. If going during the summer, expect to have a hard time getting parking and getting seats. It is to the point where we are deterred from going here. There are also a lot of teenage kids here, so expect adlibs during the movie and lot of shouting and hollering at the movie.

Parking is very difficult here. There aren't many spaces in the front of the theater and shops, but there are a lot of spaces in the shady area in the back. My friend parked in the back and some kids got some spray paint and graffitied his car. So park with caution, again there are a lot of kids attracted to this location.

This is a popular hangout for movie goers on the weekend. Parking is free and there is plenty of it for all your family and friends. Although sometimes you have to park a ways off, since this place can get crowded at times. The snacks there are your usual insanely priced varieties, not the the snack brand names, but the movie prices for the snacks.

The weekends are usually crowded with college kids. The movie selection is varied and you can use Fandango there too. I'd recommend buying your tickets online because the line for tickets can be a wait at times. And besides, Fangao is not a wild beast, it a convenient way to get tickets online.

PROS: Lots of free parking
CONS:
