Gold Class = Comfy seats, but the service borders on laughable. First time we went they mixed up our food order. Finally ended up with a cold plate of nachos. Then they bought us our two desserts ... with one spoon. Had to leave the movie to get another one. We wrote that experience off as an aberration, and decided... More

Me and my wife visited Event Cinema IMAX to kill some time on a cold july night. The movie was the Indepencende Day sequel resurgence or something. There were only a handful of people there. Maybe 10 including us. The treatre itself looked old and run down. Some drapes hanging etc. But boy when the show started. They showed a... More

This is a big complex with lots of choices. Price was comparable with other cities. Food and drinks were acceptable - we had a deal, which was by far the best way to go. The popcorn bucket was very big. The whole facility was very clean and roomy. The sound was very loud. Leg room was just adequate for a... More

As a birthday treat, a couple of friends went to see a movie at Gold Class. The service was average while we ordered some snacks then were shown to our seats. The seats were comfortable leather and quite roomy. We didn't order meals but noted that they came out quite fast, unfortunately staff cleared the plates very nosily (scraping knives/forks)... More

Been many times, nice clean cinemas. Student cinebuzz membership ($10 per year) is 100% worth it as your ticket prices become $10 instead of $16. And you can get free tickets. IMAX provides a really nice large screen experience, its also lound af. Was a bit disappointed in the Gold Class premium theater as the Gold Class food was quite... More

Great experience in gold class, my only concern would be that's the foods over priced but it's slightly expected. Service was good but again the fact you have to find parking would put a lot of people off.

Took family of four purchasing 2 x Date Night option - tickets, main meal, beverage, dessert. At $57.50 each the meal options where quite limited - burgers, nachos and when it arrived to our comfy and spacious chairs quite cold. The call button on two of the four chairs didn't work either. The concept is great - quiet bar before... More
