Movie Theaters in Greater Palm Springs
Lean back — far back — and relax in a plush, luxury lounge recliner at Century Theaters at The River or Century La Quinta. A wall-to-wall screen and stadium-like seating create the ultimate movie-going experience. Or reserve one of the D-Box motion-activated seats at Mary Pickford Theatre is D’Place Entertainment so you can not only see the action on screen but live it. This state-of-the-art theater shows the latest blockbusters as well as the occasional classic movie, and its Cinema Cafe comes stocked with your usual popcorn and soda pop plus more non-traditional (yet delightful) offerings like beer, wine, pizzas, and ice cream.
