AMC Kabuki 8

Cinema in Japantown, Fillmore & Pacific Heights

A go-to for rainy day matinees, featuring big-name flicks and film festival favorites. Pro tips: reserve a stadium seat online ($2 extra) and arrive early to beat the line to the bar for wine, beer and well drinks to pair with your movie snacks (hence the 21-plus designation for most shows).

Note: expect a $1.50 to $3 surcharge to see a movie not preceded by commercials.
