Owned by the same group that runs Iron Mountain and Marquette. Not nearly as nice as the new "state of the art" Marquette facility. Recent renovations have improved experience. Sometimes very limited selection of movies, they take few risks with their booking. So no art house or other movies that might have low demand.

The VIP seats are definitely worth the extra money if you want to have a very comfortable high quality seating area! Lots of leg space and lots of space to sit! Very comfy! Overall the staff has been friendly and helpful! No complaints!!

This theater group is really entertaining. The variety of shows they show is really great! The staff is very friendly and always ready to serve you. The seating is great and there is plenty of it. I recommend that you get your pop corn and drinks before you show begins. You can't see a show without them. The place is... More

Every now and then we will go to a show, but it is always a game of 'is your seat broken or mine?' Then we scoot sideways down the rows until we find two that are next to each other that are not broken. I love that we have the cinema here though. Just a nice freshening up would be... More

Wasn't happy that they don't have any coupons or really discounts for the traveler. They are the only theater in town and found their prices for concessions were right up there with the big cities. Am a Regal theater member and was discouraged that they don't have a similar program..Cinema itself was good and the surroundings clean and kept up.

Rio2 was shown as a promotion on Saturday morning so I took my two grandchildren. I expected the theater to be packed but there were still some empty seats. Also had taken my grandson to see Captain America the night before- it was almost empty but we went to a 6;10 showing so maybe was more filled later in the... More

They have moved to digital projection. All in all a decent and well kept theater. The exit signs shining on several of the screens is as annoying now as the day the place opened.

This is one of the nicer movie theaters in the Upper Peninsula. I like to go to a show or two here in the summers when I am in Escanaba.
