User reviews on Santikos Palladium IMAX-San Antonio
I go here with my husband and my now two year old son. I love it. It's clean compared to other theaters.

Attendants were robot like and impersonal. My theatre was jam packed and uncomfortable. When the ads and previews started there was a giant hair on the screen and it went from preview to preview. Worse was the shaking screen. I was getting dizzy just looking at the screen. I felt gypped for paying $9.50
If you're looking for high tech digital projectors and the latest in sound, the San Antonio area isn't the best. However, this theater comes close. I have to agree with other reviewers in that I hate the 3D glasses they offer. I much prefer the standard "cheapies" compared to these. They are heavy on the nose and always seem to be filthy to me.
The seats are very nice and one of the best features of the theater. If you like cookies and ice cream, this theater offers both as a form of consession. Unfortunately, they also offer alcohol, so be prepared for durnken idiots at your screening. It seems to me that this theater is always overly crowded, which is a minus to me. Still, it's probably one of the nicer theaters in San Antonio.
I live really close to the Palladium and I usually go their with my friends every friday. The price is higher but when it comes to service I lyk going their along with the nice clean enviroment they have. Plus with so many different places to eat around it the price of their food has never truly bothered me.
they started selling their sliced jalepenos now. tight ass f***ers. the worst part is they suck. they taste like hot pickles. HELLO this is san antonio, quit passing off bulls***. my ass already hurts paying $5 for a 40 cent coke. and who was the nimrod who wrote a palladium review that included calling AVATAR the most influential movie of our time????? what a DUMBASS. nothing original about it other than clean special effects. its DANCES WITH WOLVES on another planet. we all got suckered.
I feel cheated every time I go to see a movie that isnt at Santikos Palladium. It is the nicest, cleanest, and friendliest theater in the city. Hands down, without exception.
Like the person who also commented, I also went to see Avatar here, but unlike them I had a great time. Its not always going to be easy when you see a vastly popular movie... especially when it happens to be the most influential movie of our time. The food was amazing, the drinks were delicious, and the service was brilliant. Yes, there are lines. Yes, I had to wait in those lines but the employees were sharp, understanding, and handled everything as best they could.
I go to the movies once every couple weeks and there have been many times I have gone more than once in a single week if there are some really good flicks out. I have been to every theater in the city, every single one, more than once and still Palladium is tops. I even own their rewards card, as well as their competitors, and theirs rewards system is far superior.
My son and I wanted to see Avatar in 3-D IMAX the day it opened, so I bought tickets online, paying not only a higher ticket price, but also a "convenience fee." When we got to the Palladium, I was told I could pick them up inside. We got inside and found a LONG line of other people who had bought their tickets online. The line seemed to be moving VERY slowly.
After about 30 minutes, one of the employees made an announcement that if anyone who had purchased online could print out our tickets at the two kiosks on either side. It would have been nice if they had said that earlier, but better late than never, so we (and a lot of others) got out of line. Unfortunately, it turned out that one of the kiosks was out of order, and the other had no paper. We informed the guy at the "service" desk, who said he would call for some paper immediately (he didn't.) After waiting ten minutes or so, everbody got back at the end of the original line. More waiting.
Still the line is moving slowly, and now we're getting close to the start time time. So I left my son to hold the place in line and checked to see what the problem was. Apparently the theater had oversold, and all of us who had paid extra to get seats were being given a choice of either front row or far side edge seats (in the IMAX theater) meaning they were practically worthless.
What was slowing things down so much was that people were trying to change plans, decide if they wanted to stay, or get a refund. And if the customer opted for the refund, if they didn't have a printed receipt, the refund was only for the theater's price, not for the higher price we had paid online, nor for the convenience fee.
Once I got to the front (this after almost an hour) I first told the guy to call for more paper for the one working kiosk. He said he would and then blew me off, so I demanded that he do it while I waited, and then re-announce to the surly crowd that they could use the kiosk, but that there were no more seats except on the side of the front row.
Fortunately, I had brought a printed receipt with me, but they still argued with me about my refund. But after only a few minutes, I was finally able to get a full refund of the price I had paid.
I never got back the convenience fee, but I consider that a small price to have learned NEVER TO PATRONIZE SUCH A POORLY-RUN ESTABLISHMENT AGAIN!
We went to the Regal Northwoods to see the movie (at a lower price) and had a great time. I haven't been back to the Palladium since, and have not missed their lousy service, overpriced tickets, or jammed parking lot one bit.
3d glasses were gross! take your oun windex and cloth. they use the same towel over and over again
