The theatre is nice, the food and drinks are appropriately overpriced so sneak treats in your purse as usual, but heres the deal. A woman with an unmarked service dog was turned away at the theatre entrance, explaining she had been there many times with no issue, that she is not legally obligated to provide proof or explanation for her disability or need for the dog. I reminded the worker (after initially being ignored) that they were breaking the law, and they claimed being on private property enabled them to do this. In our theatre there was a different person with a service dog...I was discouraged by the employees attitude, unfairness, lack of compassion, and Im still convinced that since a theatre is open to the public, that the law was broken, and a minimum of one customer was lost. Maybe we will take our business to the medford theatre next time. I dont believe in the customer always being right, but they messed this one up for sure, and there are a handful of people that just had a negative experience as a result of a power tripping employee.
I want to start by saying that I absolutely love movies. Watching them is pretty high on the list of my favorite things things to do in life. Yeah, Im one of those people. I am also a very big fan of quality. Being a truck driver who loves movies, Ive been to A LOT of movie theaters across the country. Southgate Cinemas charges more per ticket than Ive seen some theaters charge that have 4k projectors and laser precision surround sound. Also, all too often when I watch a movie here there is either a blown speaker, the volume is way to quiet or some other problem with the projector positioning. Basically, if you arent interested in top quality, and can sit through a pirated version of a movie at any given time, this place will be a good experience for you. But if you have a good set up at home, coming here will probably be a disappointment.
Theaters are great if it was 20 years ago. Mediocre sound system at best. Went to Star WarsVII, and didnt even have the rear channel audio going. Even when they go have all channels firing, the surround effect is underwhelming. Granted Ive read a few reviews lauding the sound quality. Maybe Im spoiled with the more state of the art theaters where I used to live. I give positives that the staff is quite friendly and the auditoriums/bathrooms/lobby are all quite clean. Major thumbs up to the staff. All in all it is a decent theater. All things being equal when its time for the big blockbuster eye/ear candy movies Ill likely take the road trip to Medford. Based on my previous experiences with the big popcorn flicks I just dont feel Southgate can deliver for the full effect you want from movies of that stripe.
The staff is good ,the prices of soda and popcorn are ridiculous. Every time this theater seeks permission to expand ,they say that they will be showing more "art films". All they did was add a party room for kids birthdays and a series of very small concrete box like rooms to show movies that are past their sell by date. What can you expect from a theater that cosidered The Full Monty an "art film " probably because the actors had accents from a different part of England than usual. It will be interesting to see whether Legend ,the story of the Kray twins who ruled over the East End of London and and headed one of the most vicious gangs ever. They were like twin Godfathers with really no boundaries. .
Coming Attractions Theaters (CAT) Grants Pass is the ONLY movie theatre within 70 miles to the north, Roseburg, and 30 miles to the south, Medford, and is an ATTRACTION for thieves and vagabonds. Citizen-vehicles are under constant assault from taking of license plates to the actual dis-assembly of a motor-vehicles hard mounted and wired wheel chair lift of a permanently disabled Veteran. Of which CAT has neither acknowledged or responded. Even after repeated attempts to assist w/ video surveillance set up, and security patrol efforts, CAT has stated they are too busy with the buildout of future movie establishments. !! Really ! Very upsetting. Mark Collier. LT USCG (Ret.)
Clean your projector windows. Image quality in theater 4 was very low when I watched Valerian on August 3, 2017. Granted its probably only 1080p, but still, clean those damn filthy windows and you will be worth more stars. You could be worth even more if you didnt force us to buy tickets at the F***ING food counter. Seriously? Lame. It took FOREVER it get tickets. The movie was great, but everything else about the experience just screamed "cheap as possible because I dont care about quality" I for one, do care about quality, and yours was lacking at the time I last visited your theater. Aug 3, 2017.
I agree with the other reviews. Nice theatre, average prices. I have been here several times, and i have never had a bad experience. However I must offer counter-opinion on the current promo campaign of running movies from 20 or 30 years ago, on certain days. I dont want to pay todays prices to see a movie from 30 years ago, even if it is a classic, thats why i have Blu-Ray. No offense intended to the movie theaters, I even worked at a movie theatre, but I prefer spending that kind of money, for new releases, and a present day technology, cutting edge experience.
A very nice multiplex theater. Clean, comfortable seating, good parking. Big hit movies get the large auditoriums. Movies held-over for an extra week or two get the small auditoriums. 4-6 spaces for wheelchairs with seats for accompanying friends. I mention this because a friend has a motorized wheelchair. We got to sit in one of the larger auditoriums and they played the movie for just the two of us. Got free refills of popcorn. Price is the same as Medfords Tinseltown.
The theaters are not over packed and typically have very few people in them during the afternoon. Ive had the whole theater to myself many times. Very comfortable, clean and quiet with great sound systems. There is a new birthday room and great packages. My 9 year old had the best birthday ever there which included a tour of the behind the scenes. And, they have added more theaters along with a game room. Love this theater!
In any major city, such as San Jose where I am from, the cost for a ticket is more than reasonable comparatively. i usually pay $15 for a matinee seat and $20 for a non-matinee seat. I paid $11 for a seat including the price of a candy. That is even cheap by the national standard. The sound system is JBL, which is the best, by the way. Ill be going out to the movies here more often since they have prices like these.
Its the only option in town, but it could be worse. They have different sized theaters and the more popular films are hosted in the nice sized ones. The less popular/on their way out films are in a small theater that would be better suited for renting out to a party. They do offer that service and have an arcade. Like most theaters, the snacks and drinks are way over priced. They do not allow bags or large purses inside.
