This is a nice place to see a movie if you are in the Plaza area. Parking is easy and ticket prices were only $4 on Sunday evening! The atmosphere is nice and clean and staff is friendly. Only draw back is the panhadler outside the theater, but that's pretty normal for the plaza....

We went to a movie on New Years Eve. It was so cheap we thought they had only charged us for one ticket. We were so pleased we decided to see a second movie. Seats were adequate and theatre was not crowded. We will definitely return!

This is close to the house, clean, cheap and easy. We were able to see two films in one evening and always have a good experience when we are there. The only drawback would be the lines at the concessions. That could run much smoother. Overall, this theater is close to our house and we are always able to see what we want here.

This theatre could easily upcharge the heck out of their tickets because it's located on the Country Club Plaza but it continues to have the best prices in town! I won't watch movies anywhere else!

Who would have guessed this theater in the heart of Kansas City’s poshest shopping district also has one of the area’s best first-run movie ticket price values? Cinemark Palace at the Plaza has been there for years, but we recently rediscovered it and in doing so, learned that matinee ticket prices until 6 p.m. are just $4 for adults. This compares to matinee prices at local competitors AMC and Dickinson of $7 and $8 and AMC’s matinee rates only go into the early afternoon on weekends. Tickets for 3D shows at The Palace for matinees only add $2.75 to the basic matinee price, which still makes them less than the other theaters’ regular tickets! As result, we’ve started seeing shows at The Palace whenever possible and stopped messing with rewards clubs you have to pay to join at the other chains. The Palace is a nice place with stadium seating in every theater, a small café (which I’ve never been in) and extra touches like a painting on the ceiling above the escalator to the third floor theaters showing the night sky and folks looking up. Back in the 1980’s, the building which houses the main part of The Palace now was an indoor shopping mall called Seville Square and was full of shops and restaurants. Today, the building houses, in addition to The Palace, Brio and Noodles & Company restaurants, and just a couple of retail shops. Some architectural elements, like the escalators which take you up to the second floor box office, are left over from the mall days. The Palace’s bigger theaters, which show the most current releases, are located on the west side of Pennsylvania Street above the parking lot and are accessible via an enclosed and carpeted bridge from the second floor which used to be the pedestrian entrance from the parking lot back when this was a mall. Parking can be a little sticky, especially at the Plaza’s busy times, but there’s lots of free parking in the aforementioned lot west of Pennsylvania, just give yourself plenty of time to hunt down a space. The only other drawback is that there’s often a panhandler looking for handouts outside the main doors to the theater. But the low ticket prices have made this my favorite theater in Kansas City for current mainstream releases.
