What a wonderful place to see the movie. Although, I was in one of the smaller theaters. I ask why, the chairs were not like the remote sofa chair I experience at my previous movies. The sofa chairs are only in the larger theaters. Great...More

The first thing you notice is the smell; rank. It was overwhelmingly offensive. The staff was preoccupied chatting among themselves and checking their phones instead of noticing customers waiting to be scanned in. Previews were PAINFULLY loud. We asked the server about it, whose response...More

This was our first (and probably last) time at an AMC Dine-in theater. The seats were comfortable and the wait staff was very good (which is why it is getting an "average" rating rather than "poor"), but the food was completely sub-par and the prices...More

I live near here but go to E. Hanover AMC 99% of time! The staff at Essex nine are not professional nor is management. The chairs are old and torn and I have eaten here twice and got sick! :-(

We do, so as not to disturb our viewing. We were just there week of Aug 7 & the service was really awful & extremely slow. With that in mind, I would go early.
