Complete Turn Off
Mar 2020
This used to be a great place to take the family without breaking the bank. But now it has the seediest look and feel from the first step in the door. They were selling rudeness the day I came in with the attitude of the owner. The filth of the place was so bad in every way, I was concerned for the health of my loved ones. So I left without buying tickets and with no plans to ever return.

Its cheap but not very cheerful
Feb 2020
This cinema is going downhill fast, it's facilities surely fail to meet health standards. The movies are ok and the screens are viewable.
Only go if you desperately want to see a movie for a couple of bucks.

Awesome Bargain Movie Theater
Feb 2020 • Couples
You may have to wait awhile to see those first-run movies but the savings is worth it. How can you beat $2.50 matinees and $3.00 evening movies? Theaters aren't the cleanest but not terrible either.

This Theatre is Disgusting Dirty and It's Employees are Rude and Poorly Trained
Feb 2020
I'm a big fan of discounts and we have been frequent patrons of this business but the last 3 experiences have been so horrible that not only are not going back but feel compelled to warn others that this theatre is no longer a value. In the last 3 visits. Visit 1- theatre smells and there is tons of popcorn, Kleenex, popcorn bags and other trash on the theatre floor Visit 2- Movie doesn't start on time, after two visits to the front they finally start the movie 20 minutes late. Manager is rude when I complain that I had let them know 10 minutes after the movie was supposed to start, and worse when I went back out after 18 minutes to ask why it hadn't been fixed. "I've been busy selling tickets". Visit 3 tonight and final- sound in the preview is like a rock concert and is coming out of the wrong speakers and out of sync with the video in the previews. When I notify them something is wrong they inform me that it will correct in 15 minutes when the main feature starts. Customers have fingers and hands covering ears for the entire series of movie previews. When the feature starts sound is still out of balance with unusual loud dialog coming out of left side bank of speakers. We got our money back and left for the final time. The young women who apparently was the manager tonight has no business being responsible for a theater and wouldn't trust this business to project a movie, let alone handle a customer health emergency. Stay away!

Cheap seats but smelly and dirty
Jan 2020
I have seen this theatre go from filthy to very clean when you could use the bathrooms even. But the last year it has gotten the worst ever. Not sure if the

cheap tickets is worth the exposure to germs, etc.. I have lived here for twenty years so this theatre needs some major cleaning and renovation. The cinema screens and audio need updating also.

Dirty!
Jan 2020 • Couples
I don’t mind the theater needing updates and I appreciate the good price. The popcorn was very good. But the place is a filthy mess! The bathroom was disgusting and toilets inoperable. The floor in the theater was covered with garbage and I sat against the wall and it was so dirty! Very poorly managed. We won’t go back!

I used to love this theatre. The price can’t be beat and their popcorn is fresh,
The horrible part is the bathrooms are either inoperable or a mess. The theatre I was in tonight (screen 1) was
so dirty. Food all over the floor. No one comes in between shows to clean. Everyone was complaining. The manager needs to check on the theatre. It is a shame how bad it has gotten.

Run down; employees don't care
Dec 2019 • Couples
We have attended movies here since 1995 (or as soon as it opened after that) since it is close by and inexpensive. The second run movies are not very old, so that's a plus. It has been run down all this time, though it got repainted a few years ago. A/C was out in various theaters at times this summer and fall. Toilets take months and months to get fixed. In at least one stall, the front cover of toilet paper holder has been off for months, making it difficult to keep roll on the holder and not the floor. Yesterday my husband said that only one if 4 urinals are in working order. When we walked up the ramp to our movie there was a huge spill of popcorn all over the floor. This was at 4:15. When we came out at 6:15 it was still there even though 3 young employees were just standing around chatting or on phones. I let the gal at counter know. She just shrugged and turned away.
An inexpensive movie theater can still be clean, especially during times between movie sales. Such poor management!
