    This place was amaz­ing!!!! We went there on Thurs­day! The bar is great! Our bar­tender was Karie and she was soo fun and very infor­ma­tive on the “new” movie going expe­ri­ence. Not to men­tion she makes a great Man­hat­tan! The food was super good and my hus­band did not want to get out of what he has coined “his new movie watch­ing chair” Thanks AMC for the free­bie and Karie for the good laughs! BTW, we loved your hair! Can’t wait to come watch a movie again!
