Love the comfie seats and stadium seating ... even if a very tall person sits in front of you, it doesn't obstruct vision in any way. The staff has always been friendly and helpful. The VIP area has a decent selection of beer and wine ... haven't tried the food, but heard it's all prepared elsewhere and just microwaved here - anyone else know if this is true, or know more about the food? We've enjoyed a couple movies in the VIP theater, and it's not that much more $ if you go during a matinee.

My adult son and I finally made it to the Galaxy on a hot August afternoon to see The Help. We weren't interested in the VIP lounge--just a regular theatre. We loved both the theatre and the movie;very comfortable seats, wonderful sound, and an almost full house to enjoy it with. We also had no trouble finding convenient and free parking (unliike SLO). We're glad we at last have a comfortable up-to-date multiplex in our home town.

I guess a lot has changed since the May 11 opening. Went last night and discovered there is NO personal service as promised. The food is frozen, tasteless & micro-waved (15 minutes to get a $10 tasteless no frills vending machine type slider) There was ONE bartender/food order taker/microwaver for 30+ people - so expected delays were realized. He told us it is busy on the weekends which is why there is no personal service especially inside the theather. Then why do they charge MORE for weekends? I admit the seats were nicer & no rug rats running around was a plus. But quite frankly the so-called VIP treatment is NON EXISTENT & NOT WORTH the money. Did I mention they charge a ridiculous $6 for a bottle of beer or $8 for 1/2 glass of wine! My suggestion...avoid ... use the regular theather and have a beer & burger after the show at some restaurant that will actually give you VIP treatment. Shame on the management of Galaxy. VIP there stands for Very Incompetent People!

We recently attended a movie at the grand opening of this theater and it is awesome. All stadium seating and totally digital. The VIP theaters are incredible especially if you don't want to be disturbed by teens or children, it is a 21 and over theater which serves alcohol. All the seats are comfortable. Also one of the theaters has Dbox seats that move with the action pictures. Great place to watch a movie.
