AMC Ward Parkway 14 is the best!. I LOVE the new reclining seats at this theatre! I also love the self-service drink machines. I really think this theater has cleaned up its act over the last year and it has now become my favorite theater to see movies.
My go-to cinema. I go to this theatre extremely often, but primarily during the day. I know weekend evenings are unpleasant at all cinemas (exceptions being places that don't allow under-seventeens past a certain times), but Ward Parkway is great during the day. Monday through Thursday, tickets are only $5, and the staff is always helpful and friendly. It's comfortable and always clean.
Multiplex and megaplex theater chain shows mainstream movies in a plush setting..
In 1920, Edward Durwood opened a single-screen picture house in Kansas City, Mo. Over the next 40 years, his company went on to pioneer the use of four- and six-screen theaters. In 1969, the company incorporated as American Multi-Cinema Inc. in honor of its signature multiplexes. Now, the company is known for theaters with 14 or more screens, as well as innovations such as armrests with built-in cup holders, stadium seating with LoveSeats, ATM-style ticketing and online ticket purchasing.
Good during the weekday for the price.. avoid otherwise.. Alright, first off, you need to take this theatre for what it is. Just like Bannister Mall, Ward Parkway was a fine establishment in it's prime. Unfortunately, the mall let go in the same way and this theatre has suffered from it. I'm not even saying this from a racial standpoint, but neighborhood values and mannors are reflected in the general attitudes of the crowd. What I mean by this is to expect ignorance towards our general norms of the movie going experience and know that, generally, the people that go here are loud and immature. Unlike other theatres though, this is reflected in the price (which can make this theatre a pretty good deal at the right times). Honestly, I wouldn't recommend going on a weekend but any other time of the week is fine. You're basically getting the use of an AMC facillity at a discount for your general sercurity.
seating okay, pricing absurd!!. Localmom79, are you serious? are you really going to try the color thing here? That is so pathetic, slavery ended many many years ago!! Just because people are of different ethnicity and/or race doesn't give anyone a reason to use that as a derogative comeback. Maybe a bit of schooling would help you rather than watching a made up movie from someone elses' imagination. Yeah movies are made up- FYI. Don't try that color bologne. As for AMC at Ward Parkway, you can find 'thugs and wannabe gansters' anywhere in the city including JOCO. I happen to be a little guy that can pull my own weight and don't have any issues with anyone. Mind your own business. The theatre isn't that bad except for the pricing, but nowadays you're going to pay a dollar for an apple. Plus it tends to stink every once in awhile.
outraged at other reviews. i usually wouldnt review a movie theater, but i am upset at the other reviews for the ward parkway AMC. Seeing a movie here is a fine experience. If you want no distractions at all while watching a movie, maybe you should stay home. Since when are the kids that live around 86th st considered "inner city kids?" Is it because they are not the same color as you? Kids in Johnson county theaters act the same. Obviously you are not a parent.
This AMC theatre is the worst in town.. The movie experience is ruined because after the show you have to walk the gauntlet of low class, inner city thugs and kids who have no manners hanging out with nothing to do except harrass passerbyers. The security is absent and it really brings Ward Parkway down to a place where I would not visit to even shop. I'd rather spend more money and drive farther to see a movie at a well managed theatre. The ganster element ruins this theatre. I don't recommend this theatre for family movie watchers.
Worst AMC Theater experience in Kansas City..
I have never had a good experience at Ward Parkway. It's unfortunate, because the facilities are pretty nice. The problem is that Ward Parkway attracts a pretty impolite type of clientelle. I have not sat through an entire movie without hearing either several cell phones ring, a conversation between people three rows, or people who think that the movie screen can actually hear them when they yell at it. AMC would do well to start removing people from the theater who demonstrate a willful lack of class and common sense.
You'd be better off to drive to the Plaza. For a couple dollars more, the Cinemark there has an age limit in effect on the weekends, a VIP room with a bar, and people that typically have enough brains to be respectful of everyone else's viewing experience.
AMC typically keeps a pretty tight ship, but this is easily one of the worst of the bunch in the metro area.
Not bad. This is way better than going to the AMC in Olathe. The tickets cost about 3 to 4 dollars less than those at other AMC theatres. It is never crowded, most days there are no more than a couple other people in the movie theatre with you. Parking is never a problem. The management is always friendly. A bulb went out in the projector of the movie we were there to see, and they let us in to another movie for free, gave us two free passes, and refunded our food!
fine. i think this theatre is a FINE place to go see movies. on weekends there will occasionally be people talking but not all the time.
