First of all,i have one just 20 minutes away so i don't have to waste that much gas! second of all,the staff is kind and ready to help if you have any problems! though on days when new movies just came out the theater is packed,on any other day you don't have to wait that long. The pop corn is warm,fresh,and buttery and the drinks are cold and refreshing. When you walk in your theater,it is HUGE! there's plenty of room there! the seats are nice and cushy and they have a FABULOUS saound system! All in all i think the rave is a GREAT theater!!
I recommend this place.

7 out of 13 people found this review helpful. Lots of screens and the digital and audio quality is very good; however the prices for admission and concessions are much higher than other local theatres - it cost me $25 for me and my sons aged 11 & 13 for a matinee, not to mention costs for concessions! In comparison, local Goodrich theatre charges $3.00 for matinees, free refills on soda and 27 cents refill on popcorn, plus a frequent user punch card for future free concession. The Rave recently dropped their student special for concessions and most restaurant/movie combo deals.

While parking is nearby, you must walk outside a block to enter the theatre - not good in inclement weather. You must also remember to get parking ticket stamped for free parking. Opening week had a serious violent physical attack on a movie goer and deranged criminal in the adjacent parking ramp; however, no other such incidents have occurred since.

Seats are nice, but not better than other local theatres.

Summary - Over-priced, but good for taking a date with local bars nearby for other entertainment. There are better deals elsewhere close-by for families and people on a budget.

Pros - great video and sound and variety of screens. Comfortable seating. New interior.

Cons - high cost, especially for families. No incentive for frequent attendees. Limited student or restaurant/movie combo specials. Parking inconvenient with fee if you forget to get ticket stamped. Questionable safety of surrounding area. Often long waits in concession lines.

I do not recommend this place.

3 out of 7 people found this review helpful. I work hard, and when I go to the movies, I usually fall asleep at other theaters. Although the Rave has some of the most comfortable seats, and one of the cleanest theaters in Kalamazoo, I always enjoy my experience at this theater. And I always watch the entire movie. And the price isn't too outrageous neither. 4 stars
I recommend this place.
