HEY: IT'S A DOLLAR THEATRE!!! – Well, a $1.50 actually. Considering the prices at first-run theatres these days, this place is a blessing.
Even the concessions (where you'd expect them to try and make-up the difference) are cheaper. All-in-all a great bargain in these tight times.
They kicked you out for being drunk and yelling at an employee?! Oh the humanity!
windchimes – this movie theater is terrible and the service sucked. i got drunk in the theater and they kicked me out for no reason. all i did was yell at the dumbass girl for opening the door when she knew the monster was behind it. they told me to never come back. they can kill themselves
This theatre is closed! – This theatre is "closed for remodeling" until further notice. I talked to a guy who seemed to be the owner last night outside the place about 930. I had driven there to see Gran Torino only to discover it's out of business for the moment. I called this afternoon and there's no answer.
It is a question of value – When you have just got to see a movie that is about to end its cinema run, or when you want to see something for cheaper than you can rent it, this place can come through for you. Comedies are better when you can laugh along with others anyway.
Of course its run down. The lights are dim when you walk in. You really should bring a flashlight and check your seat for gum. Other than that, its not really so bad. They don't make you watch commercials before you watch your feature.
You pay $1.50 and you get 90 minutes of entertainment. It is on a big screen and you can have it loud enough without bothering the neighbors. The down side is the same as at any theater, other people's kids and cell phones, only you didn't pay $8.00 or more to have them ruin it for you like you would at the main cinema.
Do not go there. – I have to say this place has gone downhill since my last visit. i won't be going back. they turn off the air condition half way thru the movie. the thing that hated most about this theater was I felt something crawling on my foot. I happened to were slippers that day. I'm not sure what it was but that place need to be fumigated. I can honestly say this was the worst movie experience I've ever had. it is not worth going there even if the tickets are $1.50.
Buck well spent – I have been coming here for years and they people who work here are really nice. The seating could be a tad more comfortable but your normally have the whole room to yourself. They are a bit high on food prices but I can work with that being the move is only $1.00. Its a buck well spent.
