My only problem with Marq E is that most of the shops and restaurants are dead. But if your going for just the movie then it's fine.

They're trying to revitalize the Marq*E, so that's a plus. It is still pretty packed on weekends.

Imax at the NSM.
Marq E on Silber is "scarey as hell." I won't go there.
Really, Memorial City is one of the few theaters left that I feel comfortable parking and going into.

I miss the theaters on Augusta. Loved that complex.

It may not be the sound, and quality of those, but I loved the AMC 30 out on Beltway 8 and 45. It's awsome on weekdays before night when there is no one there, and there are tons of showtimes.....

How is the Marq*E scary? Especially on a packed weekend night?

What's so scary about it? I was there last week to see Slumdog Millionaire and I didn't see anything scary about it. No different from the other theaters in town.

I guess I should clarify. The parking garage is crazy as hell.
My parents had their car vandalized. Every window broken and keyed.
A good friend was mugged in the garage.

It's just not a happy place after they took away the outdoor parking near the theater.

I personally love the Edwards MarqE theater on Weslyan. Also the Willowbrook AMC 30 theater isn't that bad either...they have nice seats.
