I come from the land of megaplex movie theatres. AMC is headquartered in my hometown so I know how to see movies. This is one of only a few theatres in this town that has all the latest features that movie goers are looking for. Reclining seats and fold-up armrests are in every other row. Stadium seating and hi-fi sound systems complete the experience. The concession stand is mostly self-serve and I like that. I don't like that the people that work there are unfriendly and really don't care if you're there or not. But overall it's a good movie going experience.

PROS: Validated parking
CONS: Crummy people working there

This is a very nice theater - clean, spacious, very comfortable seats, good quality screens and sound, no commercials shown in theaters.

The attached 6-screen theater shows indepdendent films you won't otherwise find in most theaters, which makes this an excellent theater for those of us into non-mainstream films (but they get all the box office stuff too).

My only complaint is the price - ticket prices have gone up steadily, and while aren't too bad considering the area, they're on the pricier side, unless you can catch a matinee. Great theater all in all.

PROS: clean, shows independent films
CONS: expensive

This is a really good movie theatre, very close to the 'L' in Evanston. However, it usually advertises itself as solely an 'arthouse' theatre yet still plays a good deal of very bad mainstream cinema movies. Otherwise this is a great theatre, in clost proximity to many great resturants, in a really nice part of Evanston!

Overall, I would classify my visits to the Century Theater as positive ones. Located in downtown Evanston, this theater is within walking distance from many restaurants making it ideal for dinner+movie nights with friends. The theater itself is quite neat and clean, and the ticket prices are reasonable (with the student discount). Without the discount, they're a bit on the expensive side, but it's a nice venue nonetheless.

Century Theatres is a fairly new complex in downtown Evanston. They have two theaters, one of which (Century Arts) shows movies with more artistic value. They show many movies at the same time and have a great student discount. You can also stop by the Wolfgang Puck's which is downstairs for a few drinks. Right across the street is the Borders bookstore and public parking. With validation from the theater you can get up to 4 hours free parking.

It is the best movie theatre we went to. Nice, pretty new (from 2002 I think) with great conditions. Not more expensive than others, but a whole lot better. And you get free parking - with validation, when you buy your ticket, give the parking ticket to the cashier and have it validated (up to 4 hours).When you buy the large popcorn, the refills are free. (so you can get one to eat watching the movie, one to go). what can I say- go and see for yourself. and before and after movie you have lots of places to shop, or eat, because it is located in the Downtown Evanston.

PROS: Clean, pretty new, great conditions
CONS: none

This has to be the best movie theater I have ever attended. With the sofest, largest, plushest seats you can sit in and a large theater to enjoy it in. They have the latest movies and the most comfortable theaters t hat I have ever been in. Their prices may be a little high... but it's definitely worth it!
