Tuesday is a great day to go see a movie- discounted! Theater popcorn was tasty and kids had fun. The only reason I didn’t give a higher score was because of the cleanliness- especially in restrooms.

I would suggest that you take this issue up with the cashier where you bought your tickets. This is a forum for reviews. Cleaning between showtimes is not a strong point here. Price point issue.
