Distance from BHS:15 minute walk
Lincoln square-the story of spending more money than I wish I had. Nonetheless (especially if cost isn’t a concern on the trip is on the house), lincoln provides a consistent and solid experience all around. The IMAX 3D theatre may not be up to par with the likes of SPCC or Cinerama, but the sound is great and picture won’t disappoint from a good seat. Regular sized theatres are what you’d expect-nothing too special, nothing too bad.
Overall Rating: 7/10

Hands down, the film nerd’s heaven. The Paul Allen owned Seattle Cinerama feature a 97-foot curved screen and a beautiful Dolby Atmos audio system.
Also, chocolate popcorn though. Just $IDK gets you a selection of
Seating is reserved, which means you’ll need to buy tickets well before the show (Make sure to plan ahead!). The visuals are beautiful and the audio is top notch, along with the popcorn selection being on point. If you’re up for a 20 minute trek over the bridge, Cinerama is the way to go.
Funny story, I actually got locked in this movie theatre before it’s much needed 2016 remodeling, which welcomed automatic reclining leather seats, new AV and a overall aesthetic upgrade.
I think I’ll be seeing lots of movies here with friends. Being able to reserve a seat can be the difference between showing up 3 hours for the perfect premiere seat, or being able relax knowing you’re guaranteed a seat of your choice, even if you’re a bit late to the previews. Of course, this requires some planning ahead (I chose to go to Lincoln opening weekend of Civil War because all the seats in factoria were already taken).
In conclusion, the right movie theatre is whatever’s right for you.
Don’t have a ride? Lincoln’s probably your best bet.
Looking for a short drive and comfy seating? Factoria’s the way to go.
AV Nerd? Want to get your socks blown off and enjoy delicious chocolate popcorn? Cinerama.
