This was the most frightening, appalling movie experience I've ever had! I do NOT recommend attending this theater/cinema for any reason...EVER!!!! April 1st, 2014 at the 7:00pm airing of Sabotage, the movie, a lady friend and I went to enjoy this film. Sat down waiting to see the movie. In came a large group of 10 to 15 people of middle-eastern heritage. I had no problem with them, as I am not prejudiced in any way. I am your average, 28 year old, American, female...taught to be tolerant and understanding of all people and their cultural habits. Unfortunately, I have a different perspective of them and Villagio Cinemas now.
The movie started, the group began talking in their own language (rude). It was difficult to enjoy the movie. They kept getting up and down, slamming doors behind us, creating quite a disturbance. Being polite, thinking they would eventually settle down for the movie, I didn't complain. All at once about 30 minutes into the movie I paid to go see, the movie stopped abruptly! Immediate darkness in the theater! My heart raced as I considered what might be happening! I was in great fear for my life.
After a few minutes another film began rolling. It started out with the credits in another strange language and a weird logo of a sun with a pink pig head in the center came up on the screen. The movie started, very cheap production, and I have no clue as to what was going on in the movie at all as it was all in the foreign language. A couple who had been sitting in front of us got up and left, so we thought this would be a good time to do the same.
When we got out into the main dining area, we saw the couple who walked out before us, complaining to a waitress, who proceeded to address 3 men who appeared to be the owners of the establishment. She came back and apologized, saying that the computer guy simply made a mistake! What?!! Seriously?! They offered that we go into another movie right then or come back on another day! Really?!!! I'll never step foot in that establishment again! I asked for my money back, went out to the parking lot and just sat in my car, speechless for about 30 minutes before we left.
Four weeks later I am still flabbergasted! I simply can't believe this happened in my America! There are ways that a group can rent a venue in order to promote their own propaganda/agenda, but I have never seen anything like this happen! Sabotaging a movie theater, bullying other paying customers and after all else fails simply forcing the hand of the business owners! Shame on all involved!
I will not relent in making public how disrespectfully I was treated at this venue. Let all traitors to America and our freedoms have their way with this establishment. They will no longer get my business and I will never stop telling about my horrific experience here.
The food is awful and the wait staff aren't much better. Cold and aloof.
