AMC was wise to buy Southpoint Cinemas. It's a great venue, including IMAX. Does anyone really care that the IMAX screen in Raleigh is is roughly six feet wider? It's also subsidized by Wells Fargo.\r

Southpoint is a very nice theatre, still feels new, comfortable seating and great screen, it's big drawback is the quality of the concessions. The popcorn is inedible. The pretzels are soggy. The gummy worms come in a big box with a tiny pouch inside. I recommend sneaking in snacks of your own until they straighten that out. Popcorn is cheap, there's no excuse for letting it crust over for weeks like that.

This is a badly managed theater. I arrived about 15 minutes late for the movie I wanted to see and after the movie I waited in the theater to see the part I had missed. I was informed that I had to leave. I contacted the manager and he said, no I could not watch the first 15' I had missed even though the theater was almost empty. I was not told when I bought my ticket that this was their policy.
This is a corporate box I would avoid. Also, frequently there are clitches in presentation.

This is a huge movie theater with lots of movie choices and great seating. Like all movies, the snack bar is expensive, but eat before you go and you'll love it.

Pros: the mall, the restaurants nearby

Cons: management is OCD; can't bring your leftovers after dinner; don't buy a coffee at Starbucks before the movie, they will give you heck over it

I have been to this movie several times and each time I left completely satisfied. It has that big city appeal. Great atmosphere! Very comfortable seating and ticket prices are competitive. No noise distractions were noticeable. Great night out.

This movie theatre is the best in the Triangle Area. I keep reading these reviews from unhappy people who can't get what they want. And the common complaint is the "no outside food and drink" policy. Come on people. Who DOESN'T know

This is a great theater and we have been there at least a hundred times. The facility is fantastic. That being said we have had two really bad experiences. We had a friend get arrested there for bringing an apple into the theater.

Located behind the Streets of Southpoint, this new shopping center hosts this Movie Theater. The Streets of Soutpoint is a great spot for some afternoon shopping, many restaurant choices for dinner and then grab a movie at the theater. There are 16 screens here, so lots of choices for both young and old. Since the theater is new, you will be pleased with the comfort of the chairs and ease of seeing the screen.

Since this movie theater has opened, I have not been back to the Wynnsong (MLK Blvd) Theater. Southpoint is obviously newer, so it is cleaner, larger and I love the stadium seating. You can make a whole day out of going to the movie, dinner, and walking around the mall. I recommend getting one of their free punch cards. After so many visits, you get free things (popcorn, drinks, even admissions). You also get free admission on your birthday. Be sure to bring your drivers license!
