And seeing is believing.Our viewers choose Muvico Palace 20 in Boca as their third favorite place to go. Allie Pollack says"It has lot's of snacks plus a play room and games."
But if you're 21 or older, the balcony is where it's at. A lounge, a top-notch concession stand and fine dining will have you feeling like a star.Jim Lee says"Then right around the corner we have our premier theaters.
And at show time, you can take your dessert and drinks to these love seats.Jim Lee says"You won't see this anywhere in the country."
But if dining isn't your thing, maybe shopping is.The location is the main attraction at A-M-C's Sunset Place. Nina Martinez Age 13 says"I love sunset place and I get to go shopping and I get to see the show."
A-M-C has over 4 thousand seats that recline for your leisure.Martin Urr, Sr. Operations Manager, A-M-C Sunset Place, says"We are one of the few theaters here in Miami that have stadium seating and our clientele loves it.'

Now if you're looking for the best in South Florida.The winner is Muvico Paradise -- in Davie. And the reason is obvious. This isn't just a cinema, it's a time machine back to ancient Egypt. But don't get too caught up staring at the Egyptian art or you just might step in the Nile River.Rafael Perez says,"I like the motif the art the scenery ... it's really nice it captures you."
The Egyptian theme carries throughout -- right down to the last detail.
"It makes you feel just like you are in a movie not just going to see a movie."
And if that's not enough .... even the grub gets 4 stars.. Shrimp, mozzarella sticks, curly fries, not to mention popcorn...
Erin Ryan says, "The popcorn is the best too."
And it tastes even better sitting in these plush seats surrounded by digital sound.Rafael Perez says, "This is the only one for me.. I am happy."
