Serving a large Seattle area that has been underscreened for years, Thornton Place occupies a five-story building just south of the Northgate Mall. It's part of a condo/shops/restaurant development but is in its own building with a two-level parking garage that accommodates theatergoers as well as the residents/customers of the rest of the complex.
There are 14 screens, one of them a small IMAX (50 feet wide and 38 feet tall) with just under 300 seats. The largest auditorium has 349 seats and is the only one with side masking; the rest are in the upper 100s to just over 200 with drop-down masking. All auditoriums are digital projection.
The entry and box office are on the ground level, with a choice of escalators, stairs and a small elevator to reach the theaters.
Level 2 has seven auditoriums, including the IMAX, a concession stand, a guest-service desk and video games. Level 3 is a mezzanine that also contains the booths for the Level 2 theaters and has escalators/stairs to Level 4.
Level 4 duplicates Level 2 except for the guest-service desk and lack of IMAX. Level 5 contains the booths for Level 4 and storage areas.
Although the lobbies are not mammoth, they have sky-high ceilings and large, west-facing windows that provide a nice view of the Olympic Mountains (on the occasional clear days) and brighten the inside during Seattle's numerous gray days.
