There are so many things to love about going to the movies: sinfully good popcorn, brisk air conditioning during the sweltering summer months, prohibitively expensive sweets ... the list goes on. But not all theaters excel in those things while also providing a one-of-a-kind experience. So why not honor the distinguished few that do?

We've set out to find the absolute best theater in each of the top markets in America. And who better to nominate them than real moviegoers? Submit your pick via the button below or in the comments section and tell us why you think it deserves to win the Moviefone Moviegoers Choice Award for its city. See submission details below.

What makes your theater special?
What makes your favorite movie theater distinct? Is there a backstory that you'd like to share? Is it the architecture, the food, or the staff? Any special memories, tips, or significance? We want you to tell us about your go-to cinema and why you think it deserves national attention.

And we're not limiting ourselves to big branded cinemas. Anything from your neighborhood film screening, to a drive-in theater, rooftop movie nights are fair game. Tell us what makes the experience of hitting your favorite local movie spot so interesting and fun!
