Nominate Your Theater Pick for a Flick

What's your favorite movie theater in the Southland? Is it in Orland? New Lenox? Tell us your favorite place to recline and enjoy a bucket of crunchy kernels.

Thanks for participating in Patch's Readers' Choice! Our nomination period is now over. Check back July 23, when live voting for your favorites begins!


Imagine that it's Friday night and a flick you've been waiting for months to see finally hits the theaters.

Obviously, you're going to go see it, right? But which theater do you pick?

Do you hit up  for the ample close parking and stadium seating?  in Park Forest?  in Chicago Heights?

Maybe you drive a little farther from home for affordable concessions, cushy seats, an impeccably clean theater, or your favorite popcorn. Perhaps you stay close for the convenience.

What is it that makes your favorite movie theater great?

Nominate your choice in the comments section below. Here are a few suggestions; however, they STILL MUST BE NOMINATED to be included in the poll! As theaters are suggested, they'll be added to the list and bolded.

  •  in Chicago Heights
  •  in New Lenox

We will accept nominations through July 9.

We've got to know—Where is the BEST place to catch a movie in the Southland? Tell us in the comments.

AMC in New Lenox is the best and I live a bit closer to Marcus too! Just makes no sense to make to pay more for the same movies in Orland, that I can see in New Lenox. Plus its just as clean and has just as many snacks for cheaper prices too.

AMC Showplace 14 (New Lenox). Only one I've been to since I've lived here, however. I'm sure Marcus is great too but I haven't went there, as AMC is a lot closer to NL. AMC New Lenox gets my vote!
