Recent Update 04/17: This review was from a few years ago and doesnt reflect the current conditions. Nearly everything is much worse, and the theater is always dirty EVERYWHERE. The management only cares about profits, and while they continue to keep prices down, they do nothing to ensure a worthwhile moviegoing experience. Skip it if you have the choice, folks. Previous rating 4/5 Current rating 1/5 Perspective is important when reviewing anything. Majestic 12 isnt going to impress anyone who is used to the latest greatest technology, vast concession choices, and adequate staff for the space. Greenvilles choice of entertainment is slim at best, and Majestic 12 is a godsend. Staff: Courteous, friendly and usually very accommodating. If they can help with an issue, they do and they do so as quickly as possible. Food: Though your choices are somewhat limited, the food and drink tend to be of decent quality. The popcorn can be allowed to get a bit stale at times (especially on slow days). Bathrooms: Kept quite clean and odor-free, and usually well-stocked. Considering the limited staff, this is impressive. Seats: Vary from theater to theater, but the padding and angle are always comfortable. Some have adjustable armrests and rocking capabilities. Fair warning, some of the smaller theaters have awful drink holders. They will hold the drink too tightly and you may have a mess on your hands. Screens/Sound: In the larger theaters, the screen and sound quality are decent. However, the smaller theaters suffer from extremely outdated technology. The image quality is average at best (usually poor) and the sound often has serious issues. Many screens have been improperly patched and have noticeable bumpy and discolored regions. Cleanliness: Unlike the bathrooms, the theaters are not properly maintained, and often have sticky floors and greasy seats or armrests. Parking: Parking can be an issue during opening days of blockbusters, especially in the evening. Any other time, the parking is ample and convenient. Prices: This is the sweet spot for this theater and it is why I happily give it 4 stars. The prices are incredibly reasonable and a breath of fresh air from the Metroplexs outrageous ticket and concession prices. Majestic 12s ticket prices mean that you can easily see movies often while on a tight budget. Greenville is most thankful for this. Summary: Sure, wed love to have the big city movie experience closer to home, but it just isnt feasible. The theater thrives because people can afford to go to the movies with friends and family on a regular basis. The problems that persist here are acceptable to most of us, and well gladly continue being patrons. Ill see you at the movies!
The cheap prices are the only reason to come here and even then its still better to pay the 5 bucks extra to go to Rockwall ... bathrooms are horrendous and more than half of the womans stalls dont lock. Never enter one of their theaters if the light is on because youll want to vomit, it looks so disgusting. A lot of the chairs are broken, and alot of the arm rest dont have padding anymore. Every time I have watched a scary movie here the staff wont do anything about the noisy teens playing on their phones and screaming just to scream. I had a cop feel so bad about my friends and my experience here, that he gave us his pass to a free movie. The cop can not legally take anyone out of a theater due to the policies of the theater itself. Only staff can. But they never do anything about people on their phones or grouos of teens talking and screaming and playing musical chairs. Its ridiculous!
The prices are decent for the fact that they have current movies, but the cleanliness and upkeep are much more that of a run-down dollar theater. There are doors in the womens bathroom that havent had working lock in at least 9 years, when we moved to the area. Dont dare walk in the theaters when the lights are on, or you will not even want to sit in the seats. There are also employees working behind the counter without proper hair covering. I have NEVER encountered one friendly member of management. In fact, the current manager is one of the rudest people Ive ever met. Its honestly gotten to the point, that I had rather drive 30 minutes and pay extra just to be in a decent theater. Im sure they wont miss my measly $250+ that I spend per month there... But maybe if enough local people will demand a little better service and facility, they will get the point.
This place is okay. Im from the Metroplex and everything in Greenville looks bad to me. The seats in this place are really comfy. However a lot of people text in the theaters, which is so very annoying. :( But I guess Im supposed to review the movie theater itself not the people that go there. They have Old vintage movie posters and stuff hanging all over the walls which I guess is kind of cool. I guess. Sometimes 11 year olds sneak into R rated movies, but that happens at a lot of theaters. Well the seats are really comfy and if you bring a can of food you get a free little bag of popcorn. Also, sometimes you have to wait in the concession line for tickets if the box office outside is closed. Still, as a DFW teenager who recently moved to Greenville, I will happily go to this place because theres nothing else fun to do around here anyway.
I want this place to be great, but they are their own worst enemy. My most recent trip was laughably bad. Most recently, I saw a movie on one of their biggest (if not the biggest) screens. Unfortunately the projection didnt fill up the entire screen. There were huge black gaps all around. I wont pretend to know the reason, but it looked like the image quality just wasnt good enough to be blown up anymore. In 34 years of seeing movies, that was definitely a first. Nevertheless, you still cant beat their prices. Also, there is an electronic ticket kiosk inside the lobby that rarely gets used if you want to avoid the lines. Concessions are typically hit or miss, along with customer service. But that is par for the course with any movie theater.

Showed up an hour early with my kids to see a movie. Bought tickets. Wait in line at the concession stand over 45 minutes. While in line, one of the employees makes an announcement that the movie is sold out. Im thinking no big deal because Ive already bought tickets. Walk into the theatre and theres no seats available. So its either get a refund or wait 2 1/2 hours for the next showing. Most theatres only sell enough tickets to fill the amount of seats that they have available. Not Majestic 12 in Greenville though. At least the manager offered $1 refills for our drinks when the movie we came to see plays again.
Its a small town movie theater with very little amenities, so you get what you pay for. Though the screen may not be the nicest, the floors a little too sticky, you still cant beat seeing a current release for $5 (matinee price). The biggest problem I have encountered there are actually the audiences. The fine people of Greenville have not learned the art of being silent during a movie, nor do they make an attempt to speak quietly. That being said, I usually go to Dallas where people are more respectful. You wouldnt think that would be the case, but it is. Oh, well.
