You're paying $1 - $2 to see a show. Obviously it's not going to be the same as the $18 AMC down the street. That being said, when I go it's clean and the staff are friendly. I have no issue with this place. It would be great for toddlers or young children during the day since it's not too... More

The place is old and not the cleanest. I would not eat off the seats but is that what you go there for? The movies are good. Tuesday is senior day ! You get into the movies for $1 a small pop for $1 and a small popcorn for $1. You really can't beat it for an afternoon out. The... More

You get what in pay for in life, and that is the movies as well. What the heck do you expect plush seating, perfect screen, and sound, and clean floor. Heck you cannot even get a candy bar for 50cents and that is what they charge on Tues. The people that go there are not anything else but people. The... More

Sure the movie is cheap but I would never want to be at this mall after dark. Just don't. There is another cheap movie theater off of University...find that one and go there.

I cannot stand paying $8 to $10 for a movie. I wait a couple weeks or a month then it comes here. Now, it is a "dollar" theater - the sound is not as great, the screen a little smaller sometimes, the seats are getting old, the floor can be a little sticky, the bathrooms are not the best -... More

This movie theater is scummy. It smells like urine and there are strange and disgusting stains on everything. The mall, itself, is pretty shady and there are often armed robberies in the parking lot. If the movies aren't enough entertainment, though, you can often see hookers and drug dealers plying their trades in the parking lot. Seriously...STAY AWAY...This is NOT... More

You get to see movies for $1.00 on Tuesdays that have just left the first-run houses and which cost ten times more. Some of the movies are even still running at the first-run theaters for a lot more money.

The audio is very bad. Better movies at home. The only reason to go there is to take a nap in the afternoon.
