I don't go much because I just don't like going there I'll go to Huntsville before I go there because what they sell it's worth it.

Clean facility with seats that are ok. Certainly a basic place with no abnormal discounts. Popcorn has fake butter, a no-no by our standards.The only theaters in Athens.
