Apparently there were rats found in the theater and they were closed by the Health Department. It was initially closed due to renovations, but the newspaper reported the rats. Makes you wonder where the rats are now????

This was our first visit since they updated the place. They have a lot more updating to go. The movie itself was good--good visual and sound quality. However, it took five minutes of searching to find seats without some sort of smear on them. There were four of us, and there weren't four clean seats together. If you go, make... More

$3.00 for adult ticket and $2.00 for kids Our first time trying this budget theater and it will be our last. There were only 8 people in the theater and we all heard the lady in the projector room yelling, screaming about the F......projector not working. The F word was used at least 12 times along with several other very... More

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
