Itching to see the latest blockbuster film? Or what about a nostalgic classic film? St. Charles has several movie theaters throughout the city and county so you can get your movie fix. Add these five theaters to your “must-see” list of things to do in St. Charles this year.


To start, head over to the AMC at the Streets of St. Charles to relax in their AMC Signature Recliners. Leave the drama to the screen and sink into these comfortable seats as you escape to another universe. Never miss part of a movie again with AMC’s order ahead option. It is a simple process: go to the AMC website, select your theater and your seat, pick what food and drinks you want, pay online, and your order will be ready in no time! While you’re at it, grab a fun drink using the Coca-Cola Freestyle machine that has over 100 drink choices or, for people 21 years or older, enjoy an alcoholic beverage from MacGuffins bar. You can also take advantage of becoming an AMC stubs member where you can gain access to several perks and discounts. 


Stay in town or travel through the county to enjoy a movie at a Marcus theater. This family-owned chain has three theaters in St. Charles County: Marcus St. Charles Cinema, Marcus Mid Rivers Cinema, and Marcus Town Square Cinema. All Marcus theaters have the option to order food and drinks in advance and each offers discounts to students, seniors, and military. They also host fun events and festivals throughout the year.


Out in Wentzville, there is B&B Theaters Wentzville Tower 12. This large theater offers several types of viewing experiences such as Screen X, where the onscreen action spans to the sidewalls of the theater and Grand Screen; B&B’s own Premium Large Format screen that is among the largest screens in the nation. You can become immersed in the movie with these fun options – some movies are also available in 3D! 


B&B Theaters Wentzville Tower 12 also hosts Retro Nights once a month, where you can watch classic films on the big screen. Previous events included Gremlins, A Christmas Story, and more favorites. This event is only $5 for Backstage Pass members and $7 for nonmembers. B&B Theaters also offers TheaterEars, an app that translates the movie into Spanish. All you have to do is download the app, connect to your phone’s microphone and the audio will play in Spanish through your earbuds. Now everyone can enjoy the movie!
