Midwest Living Review
National cineplex company AMC Entertainment makes its corporate home in Kansas City, so it's no surprise that one of its theaters helps anchor downtown entertainment center the Power & Light District. The Mainstreet retains its elegant 1921 Beaux Art facade (or a close semblance thereof), but inside, it's fully renovated and no less classy for it. A giant popcorn light fixture hangs from the ceiling, while the lobby floor is covered with famous film quotes. Concessions are self-service to speed things along. And the former lobby is now the Marquee Bar & Grill, a full-service affair that serves drinks, too. Or, if you don't have time to eat before showtime and don't want to wait, patrons 21 and over can opt for a spot in one of the "cinema suites," small salon-like rooms whose seats have buttons for summoning waitstaff. Depending on where you sit, your seat may vibrate, too, if, say, something explodes on-screen.
