Review №2

It was amazing the popcorn is amazing and the movie was great high quality and its pretty cheap.

Review №3

Really is a nice upscale theater with an excellent variety of movies to choose from. Their seats are extraordinary comfortable and are inclined higher-than-normal allowing you to always have a good view of the movie.Tickets are a bit more expensive and there food and drink prices are outrageous but what the hell. You get what you pay for.Note: go online and reserve your ticket and seat ahead of time. Works like a charm

Review №4

The Bow Tie Criterion is much better than Regal Cinemas. They feature more affordable food, and much more. I would recommend BTX if youre looking for a fun experience.

Review №5

I love going to the movies here. The theater is always clean. The lobby is large and they have s terrific selection of food and drink. The people at the ticket counter are always friendly.

Review №6

Very nice facility, comfortable seats with lots of leg room. We even got to choose our own seats during purchase of our tickets, so we knew we had good seats while getting our snacks. Bathrooms where open spaced and accessible. Staff where very friendly as well.

Review №7

Went to see one movie and was told not playing and times had changed even though web sight had showed movie should have been been playing in real time.Changed plan and saw another movie.Theater was clean and quiet and everything else was as expected.This theater need to keep up with times and keep things current. Technology allows this with little effort...

Review №8

The seats were comfortable. The employees are friendly. And Im am trying to convince myself that somehow it is justifiable for Bow Tie Criterion Cinemas, a purportedly family owned company, to charge $4.50 for a bottle of water because the hotel I recently stayed at in NYC charged $8.50 for the same size bottle....

Review №9

We saw the Lion King here. A matinee show. Very nice Theater staff was friendly and attentive. The the theater was clean seats were clean very soft, roomy and reclined. Sound quality was GREAT. Only downfall is the prices at the concession stand were way too HIGH. I have a family of 6 and small popcorn was $7 per person. Im from Long Island so a large popcorn is $8 and you get free refills. Otherwise good experience.

Review №10

This was a very unique place. I have never been to a theater that serves alcohol! Very good experience overall!

Review №11

Theatre style seating but chairs not adjustable. Staff was not very friendly. Didnt seem like they wanted to be there. They heavily promote lids for their large popcorn bucket. The next best thing in movie theater popcorn but they were out of them!!! Really!!??? Theatre and bathrooms were clean.

Review №12

Tuesdays are the best deals $7.I dont like that they do not have have reduced movie tickets for people with disabilities.

Review №13

Usually easy and safe parking at night. Bright with many options. Walk to restaurants and events on Broadway.

Review №14

Only been to the one in Wilton before, which is nice, but think we like this one better. Friendly staff. Comfortable seating (leather type seats that recline back a bit). Usually Im fidgeting in my seat after 2 hours, but after watching a 3 hour movie, I was still very comfortable. Will definitely go there in future.

Review №16

Extremely comfortable seats, and the theater experience is perfect. Sound quality is perfect, and the overall impact for any movie watched is amazing.

Review №17

Nice comfortable Cinema but during my last two seatings the feature movies sound volume seemed exceptionally low so sound clarity was an issue. During the highlights (pre-feature) the sound volume and clarity seemed normal and the problem with volume and clarity was only found during the feature. Something needs to be done to raise the volume so one can hear the actual speaking of the individuals and not so much of the surround background which I think over shadows the actual speaking.

Review №18

Great employees! Mgr Chris very helpful when I tried to order tix online. Love bowtie Saratoga!

Review №19

Great theatre, plus you can reserve your tickets ahead of time to get the seats you want.Lobby: spacious well structured good for gatherings.Concessions: great selection of snacks and alcoholic beverages and wine.Screening Rooms: large, very good leg space and comfy seats.Bathrooms: very well kept and spacious.5/5 stars for this location

Review №20

In at 1130AM. Popcorn was wilted and flavorless. It was obviously yesterdays leftovers. Pretty disappointed in that. Viewed in Theatre 11. The projector is open to the lobby, so there was a light through the projector window (besides the movie) that illuminated much of the top of the theatre, with reflections of cars and people moving about on the ceiling. Very distracting. Otherwise, exceptionally clean, and the staff were pretty friendly.

Review №21

Decent, free parking. Modern and clean lobby, theater and bathrooms. Large selection of food. Alcohol in lobby only. BTX screen was impressive with good sound..

Review №22

Beautiful theater. Seats are comfortable, and I love the fact that you can reserve your seat online before the movie. Its nice to know when you walk in that you wont get stuck searching for a seat in an overcrowded theater. Staff is friendly and helpful. This is always our first choice of where to go when we go to the movies.

Review №23

Great location clean restrooms and theater, friendly staff.

Review №24

Very comfortable for my 78 year old mom who climbed the stairs with no problem. She cant wait to go back

Review №25

Fantastic time, this Grampy braved taking his 3 Grandkids. We had fun.

Review №26

Good place to see movies. Seats were comfortable,plenty of leg room.

Review №27

Great theater but concession prices SUCK also the sound for some movies is too quiet

Review №28

Fun experience with excellent seating.I truly loved being able to have a meal during my movie. The large order of like a soda or popcorn is ridiculous. Theyre ginormous. Its great for sharing.Saw mortal engines and the movie went by flawless with zero interruptions from anyone.

Review №29

Clean, quick lines. Pricey but expected with any theater these days. Serve booze!!

Review №30

I went with my boyfriend to see angel has fallen, keep in mind I’ve seen the other movies in that series of movies, and it wasn’t gruesome or anything. My sister bought us the tickets because we’re 16, not 17. We get there to have the guy rip off the ticket and he says we can’t go see it because we’re 16 and don’t have an adult.

Review №31

Very good theater. Remember that they have lots of previews and commercials before, so you have time.

Review №32

Theatre was fine. Bathrooms could have been cleaner but what got me is that they allowed people to bring full size luggage into the cinema. No bags were being checked while I waited for my food. Unsure if the luggage was but to me that is a HUGE security issue.

Review №33

Friendly staff, comfy seats and the sound doesnt knock you out of your seats. Very nice.

Review №34

I like the theater fine. Hoped they would show more independent movies. Also wish they charged a lot less for tickets.

Review №35

This a very nice theater located in a nice area of Saratoga. There are tons of free parking very close to the theater. There seems to be lots of good restaurants around which is a plus.

Review №36

A multiplex with comfortable seating that shows up-to-date first-run films.

Review №37

I like how clean the movie theater is. One thing negative I have to say is the concession stand. I had a free small drink and thinking they would take it off the total but they didn’t. He was trying to act surprise by saying the system refresh and now I see it. I checked before going to the movies tonight and I know I had a free small drink. They should start being honest with people about what points they have and what you can get. Instead of Lying.

Review №38

I love this cinema! They show indie films that other theatres do not show. The seating is very comfortable and the sound system is amazing! Concessions are fresh and delicious. They also have a deal on admission every Tuesday.

Review №39

Great seats excellent popcorn a 1st class movie experience

Review №40

The fact that this place employs the handicapped is beyond amazing! I loved being here and seeing such a diverse group of employees. Very well maintained theater and decently priced food. Had a great time here!

Review №41

Its a movie theater, nothing more, nothing less. Took my grandson there to see the new Godzilla movie - which is aweful. I had been warned by my daughter to bring food because hes going to want to eat. Im sorry I didnt. Over $4 each for a hot dog, (he ate the hot dog I ate the bun), teeny bag of m & ms, regular apple juice (12 oz maybe?), and I think almost $8 for popcorn.Be warned Bow Tie, I will bring my own drink & candy, if there is a next time.

Review №42

Very good place. Customer services is good

Review №43

Comfortable seats,clean and really good screens. Good concessions stand and very friendly people.

Review №44

Comfortable seats! Great popcorn

Review №45

Great seating and love watching the previews whats coming.

Review №46

Best theater around. Comfortable seats, affordable tickets, great food and great service. Cant recommend it enough.

Review №47

I watched toy story 4 here with my litter brother and it was a great place very sanitary food/popcorn was great plus great prices I recommend going there!

Review №48

It is a great place for movies, clean comfortable. Saw Judy which was great.

Review №49

The large seats with cup holders are very nice and being able to pick/reserve your seats is a nice feature. I gave it 4 stars instead of 5 because the bathrooms were messy- pieces of toilet paper on the floor and no tp in 1 of the stalls, etc.

Review №50

Nice clean place, not as fancy as we had been told.

Review №51

Clean, friendly employees. not a bad seat in the house

Review №52

The facility is beautiful. It is clean and there are high ceilings so you dont feel claustrophobic. Staff is generally kind and helpful.I know that movie theatre food is in general overpriced...but I found when ordering food at this theatre is was much higher than the norm.One other picky thing: we asked for extra butter on the popcorn and they said that they dont add it, and we had to go add it ourselves. Minor thing, for sure, but its the details that add up.Seats were comfortable, bathrooms were clean.

Review №53

Knives out. Great movie .

Review №54

Its a movie theater. Its clean, has good staff, and the popcorn is good. Theres not much to it.

Review №55

Comfortable & clean with a very easy on-line ticket buying process where you reserve your seat in advance. Perfect movie-going experience & Rocketman was terrific!

Review №56

This theater is always clean! The chairs are awesome, the staff is helpful and friendly, the popcorn is amazing, they have discount options, tons of choices, great sound and screen. And its always clean!!!! Best theater around!

Review №57

Solid place! Clean, friendly and located next to two parking lots, which it Saratoga is huge! Like most theaters the food is overpriced but they sell alcohol, so that makes up for Anyways this is always my go to theater.

Review №58

Great theater. Food and alcohol

Review №59

Minus the fact that finding parking is tough the theater is clean staff are friendly and the prices seem better than whats at the malls. The screen in theater six is best viewed in rows less than L

Review №60

A very pretty theater, clean, and well staffed. Also very advanced when it comes to purchasing tickets. Becoming more of standard feature with most theaters, but they offer the opportunity to purchase tickets online and you receive a scannable QR code, therefore expediting the whole process. On the down side initial trailers before the movie in my experience can be up to 20 min long, as well as very pricey snack and drink prices, I believe 4 stars is fair all things considered and would be more than willing to come back if these things were addressed.

Review №61

Saw Bohemian Rhapsody today. Great movie, theater is comfortable, BTX is impressive. Usually go on Tuesdays because prices are much better, but had a free ticket with my current card, so decided to splurge!

Review №62

See your film on the BTX screen for extra excitement. Snack bar includes beer and wine.

Review №63

Its roarific!!! There couldnt have been a better time or place to see the first showing for Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom!!!! Great vibrant sound boxes and epic graphic visual effects on a big screen set in a exquisitely colorful and comfortable theater! The higher I sit up the isles, the better the view! I couldnt ask for a better movie theater to watch a franchise I love or something I am yearning to see as it premieres! I highly recommend it for anyone!

Review №64

Bright and clean lobby, plenty of comfortable seats. Stadium style seats. Choose your own seats and know what to expect. Good looking snacks

Review №65

Nice and clean, and a fair price for the tickets and the snacks.

Review №66

Good price. Good snacks. Nice seats, screen undersized compared to other modern theatres

Review №67

One of the best theaters Ive been in.

Review №68

Love this Cinema! Spacious and clean, comfy rocking chair seats with stadium seating. All the latest movies. Employees are all so cheerful and very welcoming. Great popcorn!

Review №69

A nice theater. Clean and very comfortable. Plenty of parking nearby. Downtown Saratoga is two blocks away.

Review №70

Atmosphere was nice, bathrooms clean,friendly staff, only complaint was the burger sliders i ordered,not so great.

Review №71

We love the reserved seating. And the staff is very pleasant. Everthing is nice and clean.

Review №72

Love this place! Serves beer and wine with could you not like that! Comfortable seats too

Review №73

The theater was clean and looked awesome and the customer service was perfect.

Review №74

Usually not too busy. Sound system is great, itll rattle your filings! Concession stand is pricey, but they do have specials to save some moneyOn Tuesdays, all films, and showings are only $7! Great value!

Review №75

Reserved seating is nice at times but a pain in the rear when you want to add people to a party... Or kids buying tickets separately... It is nice and new and clean. Great location but could use more parking. At times the lots fill up and then you have to hunt for parking.

Review №76

Really nice staff. There was a new guy working and he was very polite about his mistakes or having to ask for assistance. We were in no rush because we went on a Thursday at night so it quite. Also very clean

Review №77

Very new theater. Easy parking, short walk from and to downtown shops and restaurants for a full night out - dinner downtown, a movie (with some candy, of course), then back out for drinks!The seats are wonderful. The bathrooms are immaculate. They even show classic and cult favourites on weekend mornings. BTX is a bit overwhelming but thats why its fun, right?My favorite theater.

Review №78

Our favorite place to catch a movie! Great experience every time. Big screens, good sound system, comfortable seats. And we love picking our seats out ahead of time.

Review №79

Best theatre around. Very clean. Comfy seats. Only weird thing is that they sell alcohol, but you can only drink it in the lobby. Who wants to do that?

Review №80

I went there to have fun and whatch it chapter 2 it was really scary lol

Review №81

Very expensive theater,but the only chain in the area so your forced to go. The seats arent great at all, and the concessions are expensive too. But they sell alcohol so thats cool, but you have to consume it in the lobby, not in the theater. So thats pretty weird.

Review №82

BTX Theater. Great seats and quality sound.

Review №83

Very comfortable theatre, you can get beer and wine here too.

Review №84

Wonderful seats good acoustics and very clean!!!

Review №85

Fun movie theater in downtown Saratoga. Multiple kiosks for buying tickets as well as people at the ticket counter. You can even pay for your food at the kiosk and bring your receipt to the counter. Comfy seats where arm rest pushes up and out of the way for larger seat or for cuddling. Plastic lid for popcorn tub is genius - easier to share and shake up the butter.

Review №86

Nice and clean movie theater.

Review №87

Very nice place! Love the stadium seating! Lots of movie screens inside the theater!

Review №88

Great comfy seating and every seat has exceptional sound quality because its a Dolby certified theater. Not sure if they are Atmos or not but they may be. Top quality experience. Every once in a while its worth it to be robbed for the overpriced concessions and see a big screen blockbuster action movie in 3D with deafening sound. Id like to catch one of their special broadcast presentations or events sometime.

Review №89

Everyone very friendly and always clean!!

Review №90

Do not buy tickets online if there is any chance you will need to change it.

Review №91

The only movie theater I will go to even though its 45 minutes away. Top notch audio and visual and some of the best seats Ive ever sat in a theater. Prices are reasonable and popcorn is always fresh.

Review №92

Good Theatre: Above average sound & seating. Online seat reservations worked well. Would be nice if alcohol was allowed in the theatres (not just in the lobby). Popcorn lid works well with toppings station if you have a ginger touch.

Review №93

My favorite movie theater in and around the Saratoga area

Review №94

Great big roomy seats, sound system is awesome, great excuse to eat a lot of candy and buttery flavored popcorn and soda, oh yeah the movie was good too.

Review №95

A brand-new, clean, comfortable theater showing first-run features and indies right in downtown Saratoga... whats not to like? Real butter is provided for the popcorn (you can squirt on as much as you like) and you can have a glass of wine in the lobby (but not take it into the theater). The BTX theater has better sound and a bigger screen for $2 extra per ticket, but you still have to pay on top of that for 3D. $7 tickets all day on Tuesday and get a tub of popcorn for the price of a regular.

Review №96

Great place to see a movie, though management & staff need to be a little more on point sometimes; there have been too many times when a movie is out of focus or the 3D is off

Review №97

Clean environment, friendly staff, lovely theater overall.

Review №98

Excellent customer service... comfortable spacious seating..good popcorn. Lol

Review №99

Very nice movie theater! Most theaters are all the same but this one has a unique location, extra clean theaters, offers alcohol at concession, has older movie classic evenings, and is always a treat to visit!
