I am personally a fan of Carmike Cinema however I come to Valley View Grande on rare occasions, I am a fan of both but I find Carmike to be more convenient, and less expensive in the food department. The Valley View grande is a nice theatre and I personally have to disagree with ""moviebuff"". The theatre is clean I was in there the other day watching ""A Christmas Carol"", there was no scent of older people, no dirt on the floor or seats. The inside of the theatre is nice, and more convenient spacing. I would personally suggest going to Carmike due to the price, but Valley View Grande is also a great place for teeangers. I am a teenager in the Roanoke Valley and it is ignorant how we have nothing to do other than drive around, go to Walmart and seldom times have some event going on downtown. I love Roanoke but the movie theatre is one of the last things we have left to keep us entertained and in the Roanoke Valley after highschool - and we're not even allowed in Valley View Mall after certain times now. In the end, I highly regard anyone to come to this theatre, always a good selection of movies.
