I'm generally not a big fan of Marcus. The latest theaters are overdone, pretentious joints, and it strikes me that I'm paying for that. This, thankfully, is NOT that. This is a good old-fashioned Marcus. Solidly designed, very practical, nice without being needlessly upscale. There are a bunch of screens, I believe around 20 or 22. This offers a nice selection of showtimes, at the expense of potentially getting stuck with a smaller screen.

I would have given it three stars, as a satisfactory joint, but the prices that they're charging for admission (almost $7 for a matinee?) and concessions seemed really steep.

This particular movie theater is exceptionally great. The employees are always very friendly and never rude. The floors are always constantly vacummed and always kept clean. There are plently of seats in the movie screening itself, so no one is usually ever left stranded to watch the next showing of the movie, even if it is a new movie. The atmosphere is a perfect example of what one would imagine when going into a movie theater. The only problem with my experiance at this theater is that the evening movie price was a bit too high.

PROS: Good Clean environment
CONS: Pricing

This theater is very nice, they really keep it up to date and have good seats, sound and video quality. Just be prepared for the fees. I know it is $9+ for evening films, don't remember exact price.

Gurnee Theater is impressive in a word. It has nearly 20 theaters within it's building. When a movie is released, they are able to show it on 2-4 screens at a time to accomodate all the patrons wanting to see this week's hot show. The theater is typically very clean and well cared for. It is about 15 years old with very little visible wear and tear. The prices are average for a movie. The do offer children's tickets and senior tickets for a lower price for those that qualify. They have a large snack area with usually quick moving lines. The concession prices are high, but not higher than any other theater. They do allow refills of both popcorn and sodas!
