Nice Theater/Poor Management – They have a good product, but they fail to do it justice. The evening management on weekends are children themselves, they don't care if the staff is ignoring the patrons, nor do they act as if there is any need to help get the patrons into the show by helping their staff. Sometimes a business should use staff over the age of 22. I am sure with the current economy, some ADULTS could be found to manage the theater.
Favorite movie theatre – This is going to sound odd, but for some reason the times offered at this movie theatre work best in our schedule! I don't know how they do it, but I have to pass 3 theatre's to get to this one, but is our favorite. Friendly service. I've never had to wait long to get our tickets or concessions. Keep up the good work.
Civil, comfortable and well managed. – The ticket cost was sensible. The seats are comfortable. The temperature was comfortable. The sound was too loud during the advertisements but appropriate during the movie. Extraordinary! My spouse was surprised when I said I would be willing to come to this theater again.
Good Atmosphere – I have used this theater almost exclusively since it was built, even though its 20 minutes farther away than several others, for the following reasons.
Its cleaner. It has better parking. It has a 30's art deco style atmosphere that reminds me of the theater in The Majestic. It has excpetionally good seating and a 75 foot wide ultrascreen which presents almost an "omnitheater-like" experience. To top it all off it has the friendliest and most professional staff of any theater in this area.
One reviewer, pigsyepeg, noted that Marcus Cinema has 15 minutes of tastelees, loud and repetitive advertising. What planet are you from where the premium theaters do not inundate you with 15 minutes of annoying pre-show advertising? Even so, Marcus has it over all the rest for comfort, parking, and atmosphere.
One of my FAVORITES – Once I started seeing movies at Marcus Oakdale, I can barely stand seeing movies anywhere else. The stadium seating is awesome, it has some of the best popcorn at any theater I've ever been to, and the friendly service staff (they wear tux-suits) bring you back to the days when going to the movies was something special. PLUS -- Marcus Oakdale has "twighlight matinee" prices that are even cheaper than regular matinee prices! Unbeatable! One of the best places to see 12:00 midnight showings of the big hits -- Star Wars, LOTR, etc.!!! FUN FUN FUN!
Marcus and Fleet Farm..Perfect – If you can't find it at Marcus-Oakdale or the next door Fleet Farm you probably don't need it. We never had any problem with the ticketing, the architecture, the seating or the popcorn. I especialy like the Internet tickets for wildly popular films like Star Wars II. We have been going there since it opened and we did notice a few clithes during the first month but now it is always a pleasure.
