“Well for that price?!?”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 1, 2013 via mobile

You can not complain about anything if you go for $2 to the movies right? Sure, it is old and a little dirty. Still! $2!!! Great job parkway 8 for keeping up this price!

“Great bargain but.....”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 17, 2013 via mobile

This is a great bargain for decent movies but the concession stand takes FOREVER to get through!! Get there very early if you want popcorn and see your movie on time. Management doesn't seem to care about the lines either.

“Cheap and Nostalgic”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 1, 2013

Remember the movie theaters of old? Sticky floors? The smell of buttered popcorn? Retro carpeting? Well, the Parkway Eight (commonly referred to as "the dollar theater") is that place. So if you want to see a movie on the big screen but don't want to pay eight to ten dollars, wait a little bit and it will come here. Call a few friends and meet for lunch at any of the restaurants in the shopping center and then have popcorn for dessert at Parkway Eight. It is a bargain.

“A bargain!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 4, 2013

Where else can you see almost first run movies for 2.00 (matinee) or 2.50 (evening)? Sure, you have to wait until after the Oscars are handed out, and it's a bit old and musty, but all in all, a bargain.

“Don't fret if you missed a movie”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 6, 2013

Cheap, cheap, cheap! For less than $5 a couple can see a movie, park free and have a snack or dinner in the same mall. The movies are recent releases that have just movie from the big cineplexes to make room for the new stuff. We wait to see everything there, and then have change to have a burger at Outback a few steps away!
