I am bringing the family up to concord to see the hobit in imax and to do a little christmas shopping. Just how bad will the traffic be on Saturday. I was going to leave columbia around 1230 or 1. Go to the 315 movie then shop till the places close, which i am assuming is 1000. Will there be a lot of delays do to traffic? It usually takes about 2 hours to get from my house to concord mills. I think the timeline may be cutting it a little close to get to the 315 movie but my company is having a christmas party for the kids that morning.

Yeah, Saturday will be out of control. I avoid that area on weekends in general, this time of year is just plain suicide. Which is what I want to commit just thinking about going there.

I-85 is horrible with construction and whatnot. But you can jump on US 29 from just about anywhere and avoid the construction traffic.

There's construction all over 85 that make it 100 times worse then it should be right now. Also, for some reason people don't understand the "these lanes continue moving at all times" signs while entering the mall. So in a nutshell, traffic out there blows, and will certainly blow a week and a half before Christmas. Funny enough, the least traffic I've seen there this holiday season was when I went up to Best Buy around 6 a.m. on Black Friday. Was like a ghost town over there....

The only sane options to get to Concord Mills right now are 29, or down Poplar Tent/Derita....

No way you make 3:15 show if you leave Columbia at 1pm.

I live 5min from concord mills... I agree with everyone here it's suicide! To be honest unless you like a packed house with annoying viewers I would stay away from the concord mills amc experience! I would rather take my chances with concord mills race traffic than with a bunch of angry mom shoppers behind the wheel!
