I have been to this Theater over and over again. And yes its a great price. The Theater is not clean. The staff is terrible. The managers are very rude. I have hearing problems. And they have devices for people with hearing issues. But the managers seem to want to spend as little time on helping you with the devices. I don't think they even know how to work them. Most of the movies I just sit and watch. Not being able to hear the movie. When I ask them to help me they just become hateful and nasty. I finally met the owner. She was a very pleasant person. And she made things happen around the Theater. She never had a problem working the devices. Its a shame when she isn't at the Theater. That her staff allows the Theater to be in such a terrible mess. Even the Security Guard just hangs out as if he dose not even have a job. But the price is good and the owner is wonderful. That's about all that is positive about this place. Its a shame. The Theater does have a lot of potential. I would suggest that she hire more positive people. And employees that are customer oriented. And I'm sure it wouldn't be hard to find people that need jobs. Maybe she will read this review.
I tend to watch movies when I like, not when they come out. Rarely do I enjoy going to a crowded theatre for a first showing. When I have, I've been disappointed in the movie, the crowd, the showtime, ... it just doesn't work with me. I do, however, enjoy going to a show that friends have expressed favorable interest in, especially when it's a sports movie (I'm a sucker for these), comedy, action and (I'll admit this) a well made animated feature. I go to the theatre at least twice a month, and sometimes as often as twice a week. When ther are good films, you can't stop me.
That's why I really love the GTC Town Center in Lawrenceville. I will admit I was a little skeptical when I first heard that Town Center was becoming a dollar theatre (about 10 years ago) but they have cleaned up the theatre and the managment does a great job of getting nearly new films (typically 6 to 12 weeks after their first run). That may too late for some, but with four sons and a wife who loves comedies and chick-flicks, I really don't have a problem hitting the theatre once the critics have had their say, adn my friends have suggested just the best films of the month. It's good to save a few buck too! But it's within two miles of my house and there are plenty of nearby places to pick up a light dinner before going to a 7 PM show.
If you like films, are on a budget, and live in Gwinnett County, this is a good choice.

The theater is clean and the staff maintain an atmosphere of respect for the patrons. The seats in some of the theaters are not conducive to long movies. The snack bar is too expensive in comparison with other theaters but the other theaters are too expensive on their movie prices. The old addage ""you get what you pay for"" I would say you get just a little bit more than what you paid for at GTC.

The movie theater was clean and very well kept. I saw my first movie today and plan to go back many times. However, like most movie theaters, food is over priced. If you can skip the food and drinks for a family of 4, you'll have money left over lunch at a decent restaurant. Highly recommend with 4 stars!

Okay, they may not have the waterfalls and the vaulted ceilings in their lobby..and, hey..you can't get a cappucino in there but...if y'all just want to get out for a movie night without coming off of 10-20 bucks then this is your place! Good size theaters (and they keep them quite clean)..plain and simple concessions with the usual popcorn, candy and cokes for sale..how can you complain, $1.99 a person! That IS a VALUE!! With the money you save on the flick you can go before or after the movie to an eatery, ice cream joint or for a Latte somewhere nearby. One minute in either direction and you're surrounded by good places to top off your evening out. We need to support this place and keep it in the neighborhood. Really okay place.
