Nowhere as bad as some make it out to be.
LOL. The top 3 reviewers almost seem like they've got a vendetta against this theater, maybe u guys got kicked out for sneaking in or something. As far as getto goes which all 3 of you seem to agree it is, this theater is decent at best but by far does not deserve the slashing u guys are giving to it. If you really want to see what a real rundown place looks like, go to New York and look up a place called the Commack Theater in Commack, Long Island. That theater is deserving of such a title. The workers there don't so much as clean up the mess as spread it around with the 2 cent broom and dustpans they carry around. You wouldn't let the person you hated most in the world eat from the concession stand. The customer service couldn't be worse. God Forbid you ever lost something or left your phone in the theater for 2 seconds bcus it will be gone. Kids aren't as much as a problem as the adults who talk throughout the whole entire movie. And finally you'd be lucky if while waiting in line for the movie you didn't bump into somebody and it didn't end up in a fist fight. So when you go there and see how bad it can really be, then maybe we'll talk.
Solutions to the problems:
For those complaining about it being distracting because of the people with their cellphones that's the people's fault not the theater's. The theater's responsibility ends with reminding people to turn their cellphones off during the flick. If they don't do that then that's their prerogative. It is America after all. So the all-powerful solution to this and the problem with the kids is to simply schedule a time when you know there won't be that many kids.
And as far as the managers go, them doing ""theater checks"" is jus a part of the job they are now forced to do since so many people nowadays sneak into the theater. So don't blame them blame the people who don't feel they should have to pay for a service rendered.
