River East 21 has become a thriving downtown film destination, playing host to the Chicago International Film Festival and a regular slate of advance screenings. With 21 screens available, many different titles can be shown at once, which means there's generally a good balance of blockbusters with arthouse fare. The projection is good, the sound is very good and the concessions are, as such things go, perfectly fine.

    The last time Javier Bardem and Penélope Cruz came together for a Spanish story conceived and shot by a foreign director, it was for Woody Allen’s light, frothy Vicky Cristina Barcelona. Now they’re back at it, minus the campy sexual fireworks, fo...

    We’re watching an extremely luxe pocket of 18th-century life in The Favourite, which means the bewigged fops are scheming, the ducks are running (these people don’t lack for strange competitive sports) and the offscreen organist is going for baroq...

    Spoiler alert: You do know that pro wrestling is fake, right? Don’t want to crush any dreams here. The boastful, performative nature of WWE, spiked with mini dramas and constant role-playing, becomes the lingua franca of an atypical household in F...

    It’s déjà vu as the life-affirming hit French comedy-drama The Intouchables, the true story of a bromance between a wealthy quadriplegic man and his black live-in nurse from the projects, gets the Hollywood treatment. This really is an incredibly ...

It might not be my first choice for a movie going experience, but AMC River East is a solid place to see a movie (especially if you work in the Loop). There are plenty of screens, nearby dining and the floors are sticky, but not too sticky. My highest praise? The beer prices here are surprisingly affordable.
