Movie Theater reviews?

Moving back to Va, from Cali, there aren't very many "quality" theaters out here. Sound/Screen.

I mean, where I used to live, they hada digital screen with THX approved sound systems. I used to base where I'd go to see a movie based on what options they had.

Here in good old VA, I guess sound is not a top concern.


Are there any websites that review movie theaters?
So I can find out where the higher-tech theaters are located?

what? The new Consolidated theatre that just opened in Alexandria is not good enought?

the best and personal faves in the DC metropolitan area are

- The Uptown (Dolby Digital)
- AMC Mazza Galleria: Screens 1,2,4 (THX) (Dolby Digital)
- Regal Gallery Place (Dolby Digital - a couple of screens are Dolby Digital EX)
- Loews Georgetown (all Dolby Digital)
- AMC Union Station (one auditorium is 8-Channel SDDS - I'll post back with details)

The burbs:
- Loews Rio (the upstair screens)
- AMC Tysons Corner (new theatres, great sound)
- Consolidated Theatres: The Majestic (Silver Spring, MD)
- AFI Silver Theatre (THX, Dolby Digital, 70mm equipped) (Silver Spring, MD)
- National Amusements Cinema De Lux (Fairfax VA)
- Hoyts Potomac Yards (VA) (the weekend crowds are a tad overwhelming)
- Regal Ballston Common (VA)
- AMC Courthouse (I think it's screen 4 - it's upstairs: 8-channel SDDS)

well that's a short breakdown of the theatres I like in the DC/VA/MD area.
