Our Experience at the Dolby Cinema at AMC Prime  + Zootopia Thoughts!

Sharing is caring!

I’ve teamed up with Dolby Cinema at AMC Prime & Zootopia tell you about my experience.

Dolby Cinema AMC Prime Newpark 12

Our daughter loves it when we get out for a mommmy daughter date and it’s been a while since we’ve had one. Life has been pretty crazy since our baby was born 6 months ago, but we slipped away for a few hours to watch Zootopia. She’s been dying to see Zootopia so we went to a Dolby Cinema at AMC Prime that was near by. Yesterday was pretty nasty out so a trip to the movie was perfect for our date. We got inside and walked up to the counter which was all kiosks, where you can purchase your tickets and pick your seats. The kiosks were easy to use and one of the things I love about the Dolby Cinema is that you can pick out where you’re going to sit inside the theater, talk about total convenience. Once we got our tickets printed we headed inside to get our drinks and snacks. The lines were a little insane for tickets and snacks and even though we got there about 40 minutes before show time, once we got inside the theater we had about 10 minutes before the show started. I’m not sure if it was because everyone was very excited to see Zootopia (our show time was sold out) or because it was a weekend, but it was a little busy. I would suggest getting there a little early just to make sure you can get tickets + snacks before the show starts. The lines were busy and the snack lines were a little confusing since we had never been to AMC Newpark 12 before, but the staff members were very friendly, helpful, and trying to help customers as fast as they could. The customer service was really good and that is something I really look forward to when I go out.

I was so thrilled that we were able to have preassigned seats because getting in there a few minutes before the show started meant we didn’t have to search the theater for seats and we could just walk in and shit down. So easy and stress free. We got settled into our seats and they were so comfortable. Every movie theater needs leather reclining seats, it makes sitting in a chair for 2+ hours so relaxing and comfortable. Once our movie started I instantly noticed the amazing sound and picture quality. It was definitely better than regular theaters. And then there’s the pulsating seats. I think it’s safe to say that it gave everyone a startle when it first happened, but it really does increase the movie going experience when you can hear and feel the movie.

Zootopia was a hit with our daughter and I and as soon as we got up to leave she was asking if we could go buy the DVD so she could watch it again. I always know a movie is a hit with her when she’s asking for the DVD as soon as the movie is over. Zootopia really taught an important message, that you can be anything you want to be. That when you overcome obstacles in your path, you can do the things you like. It’s something I try to teach my kids and it’s reassuring when they can see that same positive message in a movie they enjoy. Being 5 she enjoyed the funny parts and the animals racing around a city to try and solve a mystery case. As an adult, I loved the classic subtle humor that Disney adds to it’s movies, like sloths working at the DMV.

Zootopia is where diversity is celebrated. Where animals can have their dreams come true. For Judy Hopps her dream is to become a police officer, but in a world where the police force is made up of of big, tough animals Judy has some obstacles in her way. Can she over come them? Can she prove that a bunny can be a cop? I won’t tell you, you’ll just have to go see the movie and find out. Zootopia is great for the whole family and our daughter and I loved it and being able to experience Zootopia in the Dolby Cinema was a great movie going experience. One that I can’t wait to enjoy again!

ZOOTOPIA – The modern mammal metropolis of Zootopia is a city like no other. Comprised of habitat neighborhoods like ritzy Sahara Square and frigid Tundratown, it’s a melting pot where animals from every environment live together—a place where no matter what you are, from the biggest elephant to the smallest shrew, you can be anything. But when optimistic Officer Judy Hopps arrives, she discovers that being the first bunny on a police force of big, tough animals isn’t so easy. Determined to prove herself, she jumps at the opportunity to crack a case, even if it means partnering with a fast-talking, scam-artist fox, Nick Wilde, to solve the mystery. Walt Disney Animation Studios’ “Zootopia,” a comedy-adventure directed by Byron Howard (“Tangled,” “Bolt”) and Rich Moore (“Wreck-It Ralph,” “The Simpsons”) and co-directed by Jared Bush (“Penn Zero: Part-Time Hero”), opens in theaters on March 4, 2016. ©2015 Disney.
