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.

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.
