AMT is a great place for a show. All of the seats have great views of the performances. The snack bar has just the right mix of food. I find the prices a little high but the mix of talent is great.

The shows keep getting worse, and we are having trouble finding something there we like. The last three shows were a little worse than average, the performers were not excited to be there obviously but the WORST part of this place was the sound. We were close to losing part of our hearing, the sound so loud that the noise... More

The Christmas Show was excellent. The performers were professional and related well with the audience. Theatre was clean, seats comfortable, and staff friendly. The theatre also has a policy that you can reschedule your tickets for the same show at a different time (if seats are available) if they are contacted before your originally scheduled show starts. This is helpful... More

Firstly, this is a very comfortable, mid-sized theater with great seating with a comfortable amount of leg room. We have driven up from Md many times to see shows. As retirees, we like the option of some 3PM matinees during the week when it is less crowded but have also attended weekend night shows which is generally when the name... More

This was my first visit to AMT and will definitely return for a future show. My wife and two children thoroughly enjoyed the Christmas show. We were pleasantly surprised by the fair pricing of the concessions, much cheaper than any movie theater I have been to recently. Thank you for a great experience.
