This RULES! I remember when it opened and it is JUST as nice and clean as it was then, plus they just got all new seats. It was the first movie theater around here to have food besides popcorn and hotdogs, and they just added even more yummy food. They have cheesecake, fried shrimp, and all kinds of stuff. The "big" movies are shown on the biggest screens in the theater so you dont feel like youre missing out on getting the full effect. Who are these losers who complain about it? You can go see a 3D movie for THREE DOLLARS AND FIFTY CENTS on a giant screen. If youve got the extra cash (I have known what its like to be broke) you should go ahead and get some food, its the only way they make their money. Thats literally how they make money. The only criticism I have is that on Friday and Saturday nights the demographic switches to a bunch of ghetto kids that can get semi-rowdy and annoying - talking, going in and out, looking at phones, and people who bring little children to R movies late at night. But other than that it is awesome. I LOVE checking every Thursday night to see the new movies. I actually havent seen Star Wars yet so I am going to see it tomorrow Its so great to be able to see movies you missed or see movies you really like multiple times without spending a fortune. Its I think $1.50 at night but Tuesday its $1 all day. I will be so sad if it ever shuts down! Dont listen to the people who say its not clean. People just like to complain. Its completely clean. Oh yeah and the little arcade - Ive had many an air hockey game when weve gotten there early. I feel safe by myself late at night because the parking lot is extremely well-lit and theres always a policeman (not a security guard, a cop) there. Hollywood forever!!!! I will die if it ever closes. FIVE stars!
Ive been going to this movie theater for about 15 years or more, ever since I was a young teenager. I took three of my nieces and nephews to watch a movie and was assaulted by another patron. The police officers on duty that evening treated me like I did something wrong and I repeatedly asked them to collect witness statements from other non-affiliated parties and they would not. The assailant admitted to instigating the assault and actually assaulting me. I ask the police officer to press charges and they wouldnt. The movie theater manager even told me I couldnt come back to the theater because I was involved in the skirmish and is upset other people. I told him that I only struck the the assailant in self defense one time to stop him from hitting me. Once he was on the floor I didnt pursue him although in retrospect I wish I had. Im extremely disappointed as this was my favorite movie theater from childhood and as an adult. The management didnt even ask the police officers what happened he just said to permanently eject both parties. There were probably a dozen or more witnesses that I was assaulted. Its a discount theater and thus relatively rowdy. Its up to you whether or not you want to take the risk of getting assaulted.
So Ive been going here since I was a in middle school. Im out of college now and wow has it changed. The place doesnt care about itself anymore; NO employee cares about their job. I took my girlfriend to show her where I use to go as a keep for a cheep movie and no one even looked at us. When we bought our ticket the shift manager and his crew were blabbering on about nonsense, cussing and didnt even move for 15secs as we stood in front of them..not one word. When they gave us our tickets.. not one word. At least give your customers eye contact. It was childish and pitiful. Needless to say I sound like a jerk. I dont want to, but geez, a little care or respect for your job goes a long way. The main reason for the review to to say dont expect to be blown away; seats are ok, you hear every sound the crowd makes and the game room is..ok. Ok theater, bad service.
I visited this theatre several times in the past and I have had the pleasure of meeting a couple of outstanding employees, such as some beautiful yonug ladies named Daisy, Jessele, Cymo and Merna. They provided me with more than acceptional customer service. They were all very nice and informed me of all the different kinds of items that were sold and this is every time I visit . And the Young Men are very Mature and dedicated workers such as Mandalano and a gentle soul named Tim . These were just a few employees I have had the chance of coming across . Sadly I was not very impressed with one of the managers. He was very irate with a few cashiers for no reason at all . I havent gotten the time to find our his name but I soon will . Thanks again Cinemark for still being the best movie theater .
I wouldnt recommend this theater the snack bar has a really rude man working there hes tall white skined and all I asked was for a complaint number and he went against me telling me to talk to "jesus and tell your god" twice when I simply nicely just asked for him to give me a complaint number and he then kicks me out when I simply just wanted to talk about his rude security not a "police officer " like he said. His security kickes my girlfriend out when shes 17 and the security guard said "17 and older are ok to stay past 9", "curfew" and I calmly tried to talk to him and he then trys to and tells me he would forcefully take me out if I wouldnt leave after he said 17 and older are ok and I am older than 17 and had proof to show I am older.
Dynomite! The screens and the seats are in great shape. If not for the low price of admission and the occasional couple who just wanted a cheap place to play grab-ass in the dark, you wouldn’t even know you were at a dollar movie joint. Snacks are as high as anywhere else, but I saw Star Trek for under two bucks, so I’m not complaining. Weekends can get crowded, but the place is so deserted on weekdays you can sit in the back row and light up a doob while you watch whatever furball Marvel Comics coughed up this week. The DART system has a terminal right in front if you want to Irish up your soda and make it home without any hassle from the fuzz. They are strict about their “No Harmonicas” rule. Just trust me on that one.
Place was filthy and the staff was rude. This was our first time there and will be our last. We decided we were going to go to the food concession and order a burger. The staff behind the counter ignored us for 10 min. Never greeted or acknowledged we were there. They just kept working on others orders and playing around. So we went to get popcorn and the floor was covered in trash. Once in the theater we found our seats and the floor was covered in popcorn and trash. The arm rests were sticky and to top it off we ended up with some rude teenagers behind us who kept hitting our seats. Definitely not how I want to spend an evening at the movies. I guess you get what you pay for.
