“Good location, great selection, but too expensive”
Reviewed 31 December 2013

I went to the movie theatre to watch a movie in 3D on 12/29/13 and paid a total of $37 (!) for two tickets for adults. Children 12 and under get a bit of a discount, but I found it to be pretty overpriced in comparison to other movie theaters. There is a good selection of movies (which you can find here: https://www.amctheatres.com/movie-theatres/amc-empire-25) and it is located in a very central location in Times Square.

“Overpriced, but comfortable and in the center of NYC”
Reviewed 6 December 2013

While I frequent this location more often than I should due to its proximity to Times Square/central meeting location for friends, and do not find fault with its layout or comfort, I find it difficult to give a good rating to a theater that charges nearly $15 per ticket! Seriously, even in New York City that is outrageous. Those on a budget but in need of a movie while in NYC would be advised to attend a cheaper theater in Brooklyn or Queens.

Note: I was last here in November 2013 to screen "12 Years a Slave."
