Totally disappointed in the brand new movie theater. I remember 10 years ago reading the Longmont Timescall newspaper in 2006 and on the front cover was a sketch of the brand new mall that would be built in 10 years and one of the main things I was looking for improvement on was the movie theater which has really let me down. My family and I have always driven from North Boulder to the Flatirons mall for their movie theater experience which includes a full service bar and once you walk in you are welcomed into a very large entrance where you can get your food and drinks and have enough space to throw a football with buddies. However, with the new Longmont movie theater, once you walk in through the doors you are instantly confined to a very small space where everyone who has to see a movie that consists of a movie in 12 of their movie theaters, has to all stand in line in this very small box to order their food and drinks. Not to mention, there is only one bathroom for the females and one for the males. Then females consist of I believe 4 to 5 stalls which I do not think is up to code given the 12 theaters inside. Additionally, their recliners do not recline all the way back like the Flatirons. They shouldnt even be marketed as "reclining seats." Just terrible. I hate to say this, since my family is currently living in Longmont, but my family and I will continue to drive from North Boulder to the Flatirons mall for their movie experience instead of driving 10 miles away to the Longmont theater.
Great theater, Great reclining seats, great everything EXCEPT the assigned seating online. I bought 2 tickets online for the middle center of the theater (which I found odd because no theater ever has assigned seating unless its an actual theatre) but once we got there the staff told us that there really were NO ASSIGNED SEATS so we figured "hey, lets sit wherever then." As we were getting comfy for the movie an EXTREMELY rude lady walked up and said we were sitting in her seats and to move. We said there are no assigned seats and to talk to the staff. She then cusses us out (in front of her kids) and walks outside to get an employee to get us to move. Of course, no employee comes back with her (we had already moved by then anyway) but it really made me mad that no one working there came to resolve the issue or even tame the beast. Do they have assigned seating or not??? I will never go back because 1) I dont feel like getting cussed out over a SEAT while im trying to enjoy my movie and 2) the entire staff had no idea what they were doing nor did they even try to help. Sorry- but they need to figure out if they have assigned seats or not or else theres going to be a brawl in their theater im sure.
As newcomer to the Regal experience approaching what appeared to be the most luxurious theater Id step foot in to date, it didnt take but being seated and the movie (Good Dinosaur) beginning for Regal to become the definitive luxury theater to my seasoned experience. To get them out of the way the few cons that were face punching clear was the food prices where on the ridiculous side however, buying into my love for cheese sticks at a pricey 8 dollars I wasnt disappointed afterward. Now with that behind us, Regal Cinemas experience feels like a privilege at admission price. The leather reclining seats are grand in size and comfort, immediately I wished I had one in my home hah. The screen is pristine and with extremely suitable dimensions, Ive only seen the highest end monitors and Televisions really outdo the image Regal provides with 3D rooms providing an experience that replicates the surreal experience of universal studios 3D stages. That being said I would pay ticket price to see a movie here before chuckling at those spending 30 dollars on blu ray disks while I impishly obtain my movies at home using other methods *wink wink* this movie theater is awesome case closed. Five star experience
Terrible - just terrible and disappointing. I waited 10 years for this mall BUT the theater is the worst part. It has no competition today whatsoever. Flatirons is so much better, bigger and full service. The Longmont theater totally bums me out. As soon as you walk in, there is a line to get tickets, buy food, and enter the theaters BUT the entrance is so crammed and small - its basically a bunch of ants swarming all over each other. Not to mention there is only ONE bathroom and if I recall, the womens only had maybe 5 or 6 stalls. Its a 12-theater facility and I dont believe its up to code to only have 6 stalls. The line goes out the door and into the crammed entrance. Ugh. AND WORST OF ALL, their "recliners" are no where near a recliner. They recline, but literally, about an inch back. Not a recliner at all - more like a slight lean. My family and I waited ten years for this new mall and theater but we have decided well keep driving to the Flatirons theater which is clearly 45 minutes further from our home than Longmont. AND THEY HAVE A BAR! Have fun at the movies! Weve got dinner and tickets to a movie tonight at Flatirons, started with dinner at Bonefish Grill.
Wish I could give zero stars!! ABSOLUTELY HORRIBLE EXPERIENCE!!! I tried to buy tickets online to reserve my seats, but fandango wouldnt take my gift card and wanted to charge me $10 more to buy the tickets online calling it a "convenience fee". I think buying them at the theater is more "convenient" but I have to buy them online to reserve my seat. I called the theater and they told me to buy them online through fandango, but I told them that fandango wouldnt take my gift card. So they told me to buy them at the theater, but I wanted to reserve my seat. They then told me that there was no reserve seating. So I went to the theater early and bought my tickets and sat in the seats I wanted. Some people showed up late and complained I was in "their" seats and management kicked me out of the seats. No where else in the theater were there enough seats together for all of us to sit so we were kicked out of the theater, no refund. This place is awful, save yourself the headache and dont spend double what other theaters charge. I recommend going anywhere else for a better experience. They need to decide whether they have reserved seating or not and enforce that decision.
As we know, movie prices are out of hand. Ive always been a loyal sucker when it comes to theaters that offer a discount day(s), and I become addicted to movie going in those cases. On the upside, I am very grateful to have a theater close by home, without hitting a highway. Extremely grateful. It makes an evening or day out a pleasure, with less time spent fighting traffic. I get to see local kids working the concessions, and a short trip home, afterwards, especially nice after a late show. This theater is small, relatively speaking, for a new theater. Not as crowded, but in return, we have to be patient to get tickets we want, with seats we want. My family only buys seats further back from the screen, after the mishap of ending up too close to the screen, which arent well located for people with glasses. The levers for reclining the seats are awkwardly designed, but with a bit of muscle, Im tossed backward into place. Bendy straws might be a plus for people my height and size...I have to sit up again to sip a drink. I dont buy drinks just for that reason. Otherwise, nice time spent...
