It's been 20 years since AMC Montebello 10 opened it's doors and it's getting a makeover. In recent years area residents would travel out of town to see movies in newer theatres that offered stadium seating, but the past few months locals are starting to trickle back to AMC Montebello as word gets out about the recent renovations. 

The renovations start at the Box Office. Tickets are now purchased inside the theatre doors. If the line gets too long and you are tech savvy, there are two touch screen ticket kiosks located outside the theatre.

New concession area.
Self serve beverage bar complete with touch screen soda fountains that offer over 100 soda options and three flavors of Icee.

Updated corridors with electronic screens that announce the movie and showtime.
Hands down the best part about the renovation are the electric reclining seats. I estimate that each recliner takes up the space of at least 4 of the old seats. The seats recline nearly flat and the leg rest gets completely horizontal. The aisles for each row are so spacious that when the seats are fully reclined there is ample space to walk across the row. Each recliner operates independently, but is part of a pair of seats; the center armrest of each pair can be raised for more room. The only drawback to the seats that I can see is during an emergency the seats do not automatically retract; pushing the button is the only way to get the seat back to starting position.

The bathrooms also received a makeover, and feature Dyson hand dryers.

The theatre is still undergoing renovations; if you want to sit in an updated theatre ask at the Box Office if your movie is in a remodeled theatre. AMC Montebello 10 ticket prices vary, but generally the prices are $6.50 for 2D movies that start before Noon. $9.25-$11 adult / $8.25 child for 2D movies after Noon. Additional cost applies for 3D movies and special screenings. A special thanks to Alex, the manager at AMC Montebello, for sharing information about the renovations and donating the tickets for the giveaway.
