  • Convenient to the eateries and dining and steps away from the River front; this theatre is cozy and features some films not shown everywhere, if you are a film buff. The staff is very courteous and ready to meet your needs. They are truly the "ace in the place"! A perfect location for a perfect dating event with your loved ones.
  • Great place to go for movies. Good amount of parking with good access. Concessions include alcohol and other beverages. The actual seats are chosen/assigned and can be reclined to be extra comfy. Bathrooms are squeaky clean as well for a quick trip.
  • Went to see special 30th Anniversary showing of Glory on Sunday July 20. Half-hour after the start time the film started rolling but at a point 30 minutes into the film. It was fixed fairly soon and started at the beginning with a nice clean print, then 20 minutes before the film's end, the "projector" stopped as if it was on a timer for the end-time of the showing. Two dozen of us were pretty ticked but the manager made everything right. We were given refunds, a voucher for any other film we wanted to see, plus another ticket to the only other showing of Glory at that theater the following Wednesday night. I forget the manager's name but kudos to him for handling the problem with professionalism and rare concern for the customers. Things go wrong and it's all in how it's handled that makes people think well of a business. this place is the best. I'll add that the theaters and the lobby and the restrooms are always clean and pleasant to visit. The popcorn is fresh and the concession/ticket staff are always polite and friendly. I appreciate that they have the commitment to hire the disabled and take their responsibility to their community to heart. I love having an independent movie theater a few minutes away from home and I will continue to support Penn Cinema Riverfront exclusively.
  • In my many years frequenting movie theaters and obviously restaurants I have never once been denied my request for a cup of water. This movie theater said it was there policy to not give cups of water out and as a result I will never come back. If I spend $30 on tickets, popcorn, and candy I think you can give me a cup of water like every other establishment in America does. I will not be coming back!
  • Came here for the first time to see IT: Chapter 2 in IMAX. The screen is enormous and the sound is great. I recommend this theater because you can see a regular movie, even R-rated, at a real IMAX. This isn’t one of those LieMAX theaters. If just about every seat wasn’t torn, and if the bathrooms weren’t treacherous, I’d give it 5 stars.
