Theaters: 18 – 10 are THX; they own at least 12 DTS units. Comments: Most of the theaters are pretty good for a multiplex (it’s not very old); even the little baby ones don’t bother me. I’ve been sold out of weekend shows here several times even when arriving more than an hour in advance and I don’t usually try just for a movie, but with all of the shops and restaurants up there it can be a nice way to spend a whole evening. Just buy your tickets first. All kinds of trendy stuff (weird coffee stuff, bakery, etc.) at concession stand.
