AMC River East

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.

    Overblown in almost every respect (not only its giant ape), Kong: Skull Island is the kind of Hollywood fever dream that, in its first few minutes alone, throws at you a WWII bomber crash, a sizzling montage of Cold War nuclear escalation and a wi...

    “It’s morphin’ time!” fans will yell, as waves of light explode, color-coded armor creeps onto bodies, and tears of recognition are wiped away. Rarely has a franchise dominated childhoods as thoroughly as the ’90s-era live-action Mighty Morphin Po...

    The virtue of courage is high up on the list of Disney princess must-haves (just below kindness, beauty and a strapping prince in tight pants). So three cheers for Dreamgirls director Bill Condon and star Emma Watson for having the courage to make...

    Amid all the mirrored surfaces and hazy ambiguities of Olivier Assayas’s bewitching, brazenly unconventional ghost story, this much can be said with certainty: Kristen Stewart has become one hell of an actor. The former Twilight star was easily th...

    You can’t re-create your past, but you can relive it in your head over and over again, seeing it differently as you become someone new each year, month, week and day. That’s the big, trippy idea at the heart of Danny Boyle’s T2 Trainspotting, a fr...

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.
