“Price Increase....Bad”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed November 26, 2013

Originally when this theater started in LM it was $1 and movies were not first run. They usually hit the theater just before DVD or at the same time.

After a couple years it went to $2. Still a bargain if you go at the right time and avoid the ghetto people.

Now the price has been increased to $3. That's 30% in one shot. You can't tell me your costs went up 30% overnight. I will say there have been some upgrades in seating but it's still the same ghetto people that frequent the theater. On top of that, the movies are basically coming out the same time as DVD.

So tell me, why would I leave the comfort of my home to pay almost $2 more to see the same movie? I can pause it at home, use the bathroom, drink sodas that don't cost $4.50, and not put up with knuckleheads.

“Cheap Seats - Clean Theatre $1 hot dogs”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 11, 2013

better than waiting for a movie to be released on DVD. Perfect to get out of the heat and just escape for 2 hours. Maybe go see a movies that you did not want to watch for $12 at the theater
