The only thing better than a seriously good movie is a seriously good movie with a unique viewing experience. This summer, mix it up a bit and take a break from you local theater for a different kind of movie viewing experience. The following are just 11 of what we consider to be the best, most unique theaters in Ohio:
1) AMC Dine-In Theatres and IMAX (Easton Town Center)
Dinner and drinks and comfy recliners are what make this Columbus area theater a date night and family fun favorite. (Not to mention the IMAX screens...)
