Never Again – I remember this place when it first opened and I thought, wow - looks nice. Well, it's been a long time since then. We were running late and missed a movie time at Cinemark, our next option was the Marquee.
My wife and I arrived at 9pm (movie starts at 9:20) (scary parking), stood in the lobby where the movie times and ticket counter was. But, no one was at the counter. Also, lets just say if my pants were half-way down my butt and I had a knack for immaturity and ludeness, this was the place to be. Nothing but ignorant kids walking around - of all types.
ok, so we finally end up getting the tickets at the popcorn counter (typical). Of course, not one employee seemed pleasant, nor did they smile. In fact, the only thing I heard from the one grumpy girl was "tickets are over here, snacks are over there" ( in a loud, angry voice).
We get into the movie, the screen is stained from soda being thrown at it, the soda cups are still in/on the seats, and of course - ran about 10 minutes late getting started.
After the movie, we quickly walked to our car, looking over our shoulders (kinda unsafe feeling), and both agreed "Never again".
If this theater wants to be a part of the Electric City - I suggest a lot of shock treatment.
To the Cinemark from now on.
