We went to see a short feature on the IMAX screen. The movie theater was clean. The seats were comfortable. The picture was clear and bright, and the sound level wasn't too loud or too soft. We ordered food to be delivered to our seats. The order was accurate and arrived pretty quickly. The food was of good quality as well. I wish the seats had fold-out trays as some of the food items we ordered required utensils, and it was a little awkward to eat.

Comfy chairs. You can recline, which makes it a lot comfy to watch the movie. You can order food and they will bring it to your seat.

The seats are perfect for couples! Nice, and clean with brand new run movies! Sing2 and Spiderman no way Home were both great.. So was the popcorn-even had a refill 😄 Glad to be going to the movies again.

Nice comfortable chairs which recline and are heated. Have food selection and also offers a bar service. Since they can deliver to your seat there is a large gap between you and the row behind and in front.

I just moved to the area and I've been so happy with this theater. All of the staff are so friendly, and the picture/sound quality is always top notch. Plus, all seats are heated recliners. How can you beat that? Go see something in their Dolby Cinema if you can! It's totally worth the extra fee.

They were out of a lot of things. The kitchen was closed & therefore they weren't serving at the seat. When we 1st arrived there was no sound in our theater. I love the heated & reclining seats.

If you are planning to go the AMC Southpoint 17 and did not purchase a Dine-In delivery to seat ticket then you are truly missing out. This takes your movie experience to the next level and really elevates the experience. However, all of the theaters at AMC Southpoint 17 are well kept and clean. Each theater offers sets of two reclining HEATED seats spaced just right so that you do not feel crowded by other movie-goers. This theater is newer and more popular and has a tendency to have longer concession lines during prime times. I highly recommend ordering ahead on the AMC app or arriving a little early to ensure you’re in your seat by the time previews roll.

Nice & spacious. They offer discount for movies before 4pm. They have the heated lounge chairs that recline. Staff is friendly. Theater is huge and they have a full bar and grill that serves alcohol.

Theater was clean and had comfortable reclining chairs. The dine-in option was neat in theory but poorly executed. A couple getting some chicken tenders should expect to spend around $50. Most food options were unavailable. Also we were almost 45 minutes into our movie and never got the food so we had to go to the front and get it ourselves. So go for the movies but eat before you go.

Been here three times now. The IMAX screen is decent. Nothing like a full size 1.43 screen, but it'll do the trick for most. Also been in two other screenings and both projectors were not aligned correctly to the screens. There was a distractingly large amount of overlap on the top and/or sides of the screen that really should have been dealt with. But the sound system is exceptional, the seats are comfortable, and for the love of theaters, please go and support AMC. We need them.

A good theater with plenty of screens. It's clean, the staff were friendly and it was so nice to be at a theater again! I dropped 1 star because the seats in the Imax theater are in desperate need of another 6-inches butt space. They were way too short for me, and even worse for my tall husband! Normally I wouldn't mind a short seat but it was super uncomfortable for a 2 hour movie. I hope there is a goal to replace these seats with better ones.

What an awesome place and an awesome staff! I needed assistance due to walking with a cane and one of the employees carried my consessions to the theater for me and another walked me out to my car as I had leftovers. Also, the seats are very comfortable. I highly recommend this theater!

Love this mall and movie. Gave a 3 star because when I went (on a Tuesday evening) they had absolutely no food options to choose from. I was highly disappointed but decided to just enjoy the movie and feast on the popcorn. :/

It was awesome and comfortable. The clerk at the ticket window asked if I was a student so that I can get a discount. That was thoughtful. Nice recliners in the movie.

Buying tickets online was quick and easy. Everything was clean and comfortable. First movie in a theater since late 2019. The only thing that dampened the experience was a lady who decided she needed to select the seat directly beside me, even though the theater was less than 50% full. She was alone and could have picked several other seats.

AMC is a nice movie theatre. They have nice comfortable seats and play the best movies. The sound to the movies are awesome and the snacks are great too! AMC is one of my top theaters to go to.

Clean, well maintained, and reasonably priced. Bonus points for looking out for us medical school students and giving us some discounts as we're getting by on part time salaries

The theater experience was acceptable with a clean auditorium. The audio was on the loud side to the point of unpleasant at times. The chairs were comfortable although the recliner function was a little shy of enough. The food was unpleasant. The grilled chicken sandwich had a tough skin, so much so that at first bite I thought perhaps the wrapper had been left in the bottom. The bread was somewhat stale and the portion of fries was quite stingy. No where near being with the $14 price. I would watch a movie here but would not order their food. A glass of beer was also around $11.

There was a full bar and nice new recliner chairs. I did not order any food however it did smell good and staff brought the orders to you during the movie. Also in a good location, highly recommend!

It's great. There is food that is taken to you. Drinks for adults. The popcorn is warm. The seat recline and warm up. Also they are paired to it's a great place for dates.

First movie since the pandemic! Dolby digital theater was totally worth it, and everything felt very clean and orderly!! Would definitely come back

It was very pricey, though a great experience, I watched the new Kong VS. Zilla movie, the sound and visual within the movie theater is amazing, I definitely recommend.

Liked the movie theater but think they shouldn't assign seats so close to each other during the coronavirus leaving only one seat between people which is not enough.

Was so excited to find out that you can rent the whole theater for up to 20 people. So nice to get and do something "normal". Highly recommend, especially with a full bar.

Good ambience, comfortable seating and decent movie watching experience. However we were booked for the 10:30 p.m. show on Feb 15 2020, (last show of the day for Auditorium 6) and the auditorium remained dirty with leftover trays and cups from the previous show. It seems that staff did not bother cleaning the auditorium from the previous show since there were only a few patrons attending this last show in Audi # 6. There was no apparent discomfort but it felt that the staff did not care about the unsightly presentation of the auditorium and poor hygiene because it affected just 10 people, nevermind that they were paying patrons of the business establishment. Interesting to note that they did proper cleaning out for another auditorium's late show (Auditorium #5 if I recall correctly, which started only 15 minutes before, at 10:15 p.m.). I figure this maybe because there was a larger footfall for that show. Removing two stars for this. Except for this, there were no complaints.

Theater is great, remodel is great, and seating is great. Unfortunately service is slow and food on menu is never available. Been roughly 2/3 months and still not running smooth. Update unfortunately still similar issues. 12/10/19

Movie theater is very nice!!! great leather reclining seats , awesome sound quality, even food service to your seats!!! Very nice upgraded theater!! The three stars are for the service lines, if you are not a vip member your wait in the lines are ridiculous!!! I waited almost 25 minutes just to place an order for food. Everyone in line, very upset, they fix that issue they are easy 5 star! Management should see that there are long line and open new registers, some people left the line because it just wasn't moving. People leave , you are losing money .....

We liked this theater. The food is quite good but REALLLLY expensive: nachos, chicken tenders, popcorn and 3 drinks came to $60. WHAT??? We go the movies A LOT and have never come close to that kind of bill . I did enjoy the heated seats since we went to a weekday matinee and there was no discernible heat running, which I kind of get and is not different from any other theater. Free soda refills at the Coke Freestyle machines make the food prices somewhat more palatable. Only other complaint was that there was not one single speck of light on when we entered the theater, couldn't see our hands in front of faces. Had to go ask for some lighting -- honestly think these theaters are getting to be too big to manage and there just aren't enough employees to manage stuff like that.

My first time visiting since they renovated and added reserved seating. Heated seats! Separate controls for reclining and for the footrest. A very good theater experience. (Alamo Drafthouse is my gold standard, where the whole establishment and staff cater to movie enthusiasts. This wasn't that, but it was a good casual night out.)

They have recently renovated so that the seats are the kind that recline. That is quite nice. I gave them three stars because of the cleanliness issue. They need to have cleaning crews come through the restrooms during the day and reset. They also need more staff to clean up the trash from the theaters more thoroughly. But overall it's a good experience. I go there often.

Reclining seats are very comfortable and they are arranged in such a way that you're never blocked by the people in front of you. There is no bad seat in the place. The food is not anything to write home about, but adequate. The fact that they totally shut the lights off once the feature starts means you better order and consume any food before the trailers are done, or else you won't be able to see your food.

Stepped up there game with the new additions since i worked there last. Everyone was amazingly helpful. However, next time someone asks for less tip ve turned on so they don't fall in the theater please turn them on. I know you can do it manually also. 20 minutes of commercials, lights off, using our phone flash light to not trip over anything.

Great movie theater! I always buy my tickets before hand which comes in handy. They remodeled the entire theater and it looks amazing! Great place to go with the family.

This is my favorite theater in Durham. I really like the remodel. There are different choices for viewing a movie. I recently experienced the Dolby and it was great. They also do sensory friendly films. They have heated seats and a bar. I only gave four stars because the dine-in experience could be better. You can dine-in in all the theaters, but not all have the attached table. Food is brought to you after the movie starts and unlike the competition there is not space in some of the theaters for the server to go down the aisle to serve. The food is also overpriced in my opinion 13 to 15 dollars just for chicken fingers or burger and that's without a drink. Compared to the competition (Cinebistro) they could improve the dine-in experience.

Comfortable seats, tried the dine in option for the first time. Surprisingly great food. Sorry no pictures. We had already put our phones away and just relaxed, chatted over supper before the movie started. Great experience and evening.

Usually one of my favorite movie theaters and I like the new seats even pardoning the mess from the construction. However, they have recently seemed to be understaffed. I happen to be an AMC premiere member but there is no point in getting in the premiere line for faster service because there is only one person in the booth selling tickets. Also the ticket machines outside are not working. I do have the AMC app and could have ordered my tickets online except the movie time was 4:15 yesterday but today it was listed at 4pm. Still wanna love this theater especially since they have renovated with all new seats but the customer service has to be redone as well!

South Point has always been the premier Mall to go to in the Raleigh-Durham Cary area. And their theater has always been one of the best. Especially the IMAX theater. Now with South Point renovating the theaters it can only get better. One of the things that I am glad to see that they have incorporated into their theater is a reserve seating. Takes the feeling of always feeling rushed that you have to get to the theater as fast as possible to make sure you get good seating. Now you know That once you reserved your seat it's your seat. Will be very curious to see you what they renovations look like once completed. I have heard that they plan on serving alcoholic beverages at the theater. That remains to be seen. But the theaters are always clean with very friendly attendance to serve you refreshments. And they are always very helpful an eager to answer any questions that you may have.

Theater is undergoing major renovation. This is as of March, 2019. Service was pretty good. Staff was friendly and helpful. There was no image projecting on our screen for about 4 minutes of the previews. 2 patrons went to report the issue before it was resolved. Not sure what happened. Might be best to make sure projection rooms are staffed when a movie begins or have someone step inside each theater when the previews begin. Quality check, you know? Once the projecting image was available, we had no further issues. The movie was good. Sound worked great. I'd visit again.

It was nice first experience at AMC. The room was clean, the staff even ready to clean when the movie was over. The seat has recliner and can be heated. I really like it, since you can get cozy while watching. We’re watching while eating popcorn, so I wished they have a place to put the bucket. Also, where’s the closed caption mentioned while purchasing the tickets? I might have missed it. It’s really important for me since I’m not a native in English.

Normally this theatre is fine although they often start the movie late. However when i went yesterday to see doctor strange they took 40 mins to start the movie and it was the 3D version. No one had paid for 3D and no one had glasses for 3D so the film was all blurry. They eventually realized the issue and restarted the movie correctly but it took them way too long.

Nice but overpriced. Seriously, $14 for a hamburger at a movie theater? And that's after paying $14 to see an IMAX movie there! At least the folks who work there are courteous and friendly. But the days of going out to the movies for a nice afternoon have been priced out of reach for many people. Oh, and the really nice water fountain they used to have outside the theater has been removed, and AstroTurf put in its place. Ugh!

Attend many movies. By far the cleanest theater I've been in for a while. Very nice staff. Concessions were prepared well and reasonably priced. Some seats in the IMAX theater need some armrest repair just nitpicking though if I had to say something negative. All around an excellent experience.

Yeaaaah so I've been going to this theater for awhile now and it has gone downhill. Yesterday was National Cinema Day and you'd think they would be more prepared than what they were for the crowds. NOPE. The lines moved fairly fast for concessions but when we got to the counter to order the advertised $5 Large Popcorn and Drink combo we were told that the only popcorn they had left was the near empty container and that was only enough for a regular size popcorn if that. We ended up paying regular price for two large drinks only for the popcorn to be refilled the minute we walked away and the clerk was taking the next guest. We decided not to be confrontational this time but that was poor customer service especially since it was obvious that they would be refilling the popcorn soon and would've waited for fresh popcorn than pay for crumbs. And no, we were not offered any popcorn after the fact and we were still within the clerks view. Outside of that, the theater was hot and the sound was low. Not the usual surround sound you are used to hearing in a theater. I was better off going to the other location if they were going to be this bad which is abnormal for them. So if you are planning on going to this location outside of special events, prepare for long lines and wait times at the concession stands. Prepare to wait a long time to get food delivered to your seat (if you even get it, some people never get their food). Prepare some of the workers to do the bare minimum. Not all of them are like that but you can tell who takes their job seriously and who doesn't.
