Horrible!!! – We went to one of the last showings of the evening and had a terrible experience. First, when we were searching for seats, there was garbage and food everywhere. They had obviously not cleaned up from the prior showing. Second, they turned off the air conditioning in the theater for the whole movie. It became so stuffy and hot, we were falling asleep during the movie. Last, as soon as the credits were beginning, they turned everything off and turned the lights up. We were not allowed to see past the first credit. It felt as if we were being punished for having the nerve to attend their last showing of the evening of this particular film. They obviously wanted us out of there and fast, by first trying to suffocate us and then cutting off the end of the film.
Better than other cinemas nearby – When I'm downtown, I only watch movies here or at Cinerama; both by AMC. It might be because Pacific Place is newer and therefore nicer than other cinemas. But I love the northwest-themed atmosphere and how unique it feels compared to the typical multiplex one can get used to. For the same price as other theaters, AMC Pacific Place is the preferable choice downtown.
The only downfall is that it won't show ALL new movies coming out. New movies seem to split between here and the Regal Meridian down the street. I always pray that the movie I want to see will be here...rather than at Regal.
Ritzy, glitzy and and oh-so-conveniently located movie theater in Pacific Place. – In Short
This challenger to the Cineplex Odeon stronghold on downtown moviegoing is an 11-sceen, two-story movie theater designed to resemble a Northwest hunting lodge. The lower level has seven medium-sized auditoriums and a concierge's deskto assist with questions or refunds. Concession stands sell the basic fare, with self-serve buttering and salting stations. All auditoriums have wall-to-wall screens, digital sound and a mix of standard and stadium-style seating, along with rocking seats, cup-holders and funky neon-green floor lighting.
Good theater – The Pacific Place theater is pretty good. Very state of the art and it's nice sized. The sound is pretty amazing. I love their stadium seating and their seats are comfortable. The theater rooms and facilities are kept clean. The customer service staff are pretty nice and helpful. It is one of my favorite theaters in seattle.
Great Customer Service – Not only is this theater located in a great shopping area, they have excellent customer service. This past summer, they had an ad for a midnight showing of Superman Returns and I and two of my friends headed down to partake in the adventures of Lois Lane and Clark Kent. However, when we got to the theater, it was closed. Luckily, we found a worker, who in turn got a manager, who let everyone who came for the midnight showing in and they set up a special viewing of it for the 20 (or so) of us that showed up. I went from being terribly disappointed to being quite content!
Weak sauce! – I recently tried to go catch a matinee at the Pacific Place and had a very, very poor experience. The film broke TWICE on us and there was no communication between the employees and the anxious crowd...Eventually we just left.
The whole experience was forgettable and pathetic.
Displayed HORRID customer service – we went to see a movie and they had problems with the projector (understandable and forgivable). The staff at Pac Place failed to inform us for 15 minutes while we remained there waiting...then it started in the middle of the film. After a chorus of boos from the audience the film stopped again.
The remedy they provided was to restart the movie from the very beginning with trailers and all - now an hour into the film we hadn't seen but 5 seconds. No manager, no service, no explanation. We will never go there again to see a movie
This is a comfortable, convenient movie house located downtown with lots of parking right downstairs.
Way too much to pay for a movie – the rush hour special between 4-6 was a good deal for a good theatre, and i liked their student discount price of 6.50 or close to it, cant remember.
now the matinee is a rediculous 7 dollars, why go pay 7 dollars what you can get for 5, and the regular adult price is 9.25!! ever since AMC took over i have tryed my best to stay away, but it is a beautiful theater, just not worth the price.
Friendly and Clean – Great place to go, but may require some planning when seeing a blockbuster film. The screen size is large and sound quality clear. Movie times are rather dissapointing for how big the place is, and Movie selection is a bit dismal from time to time. They have a good clean atmosphere and friendly staff. Regardless of whether they let underage children into "R" movies or not AMC Pacific Place has many more redeeming qualities that make me give it a rating of 9.
