Still Fun to Go to the Movies
September 02, 2019
Stadium seating (the pick-your-seat option is meaningless as people sit where they want when they enter the theater), comfortable seats, decent sized screens, sound system can be a bit loud. Very cordial staff (but at times the counters are understaffed. Well, basic to Management 101 is or should be: people do not like to wait in line, so "all hands on deck" when a line grows too long. $5 movies on Tuesday (and free popcorn, if you join their rewards program). Other reviewers down graded this theater based on pet peeves or very personal complaints -- don't buy their grumbling. This is a good theater complex. As patrons, we have had very few problems with obnoxious film-goers (on phones, talking or otherwise acting like a**holes), and as to commercials... really, ads seem to be everywhere now (so ad fatigue is common); and as to Greg Marcus's rather corny greetings, well, he seems like a very nice guy trying to welcome people, even trolls and various b**ch-and-moaners who think the theater should be an extension of their living room. The movies... a shared entertainment experience: nobody gets everything they want, but everybody's offered the chance to just have a good time. Marcus Theaters at ICM -- a very good choice.
Gregg Marcus shut up!

The theaters okay, but if I have to hear Greg Marcus lip yodel or tell another lame joke I might just go to a less convenient theater.

I was surprised that a military discount was not available for these theaters. Just about EVERY business in Iowa City offers a military discount.
