I went to see a flick here tonight for the first time.. wanting to see what the new alternatives were like. I don't think I'll be back... The main pro with this place is the price... movies are only 8.50 and matinee prices ($6.50) are great and run to 6 (vs the 4pm common elsewhere) The theaters have big plushy vinyl/leather type seats as if they were recliners... but they aren't recliners. After having the spring back chairs in the other theaters for so long.. these things are a real disappointment. I'd call it a dealbreaker honestly. The theater arrangement is not stadium style, but is instead pretty flat - but people in front are not a problem, but you do look up at the screen a good bit. Any seats in front of the aisle I would question the comfort.. especially without any rock back in the chairs! I would avoid those. The seating is all reserved seating... which is a pro/con depending on your point of view. Tickets can be bought in advance online, but not through fandango The concession stand was decent... pretty standard prices for soda/popcorn/etc. They offer a menu of hot food, but its all just quick microwave stuff. We tried some fries.. and they were awful. They do have a bar in the lobby... did not see if you could take drinks into the theaters or not. The theater was pretty busy today... we tried to see a ~5pm showing but it was essentially sold out but for a handful of bad seats, our 7:30 show was probably 90+% full as well. While this place would seem to be a clear winner being so close and cheap... I still think brambleton beats it. While brambleton lacks the plush chairs or 'hot food' items.. its concessions have respectable variety, and the seats are more comfortable. Distance wise, I can probably be at brambleton quicker still than starplex.. and many a times I've decided 5mins before showtime to head down there and gotten in w/o issue and still be on time for the movie start. For traditional movie setting.. Brambleton still seems to be the best pick in the immediate area - skip the towncenter regal... yuck. For higher end, Cobb seems the best in terms of offerings... and people still love Alamo. I need to try that one yet... I've also heard one of the reston theaters has been recently redone.
