Not bad – My experiences at this movie house hasn't been bad. It is a smaller theater. The movie theater was ok..the floor was a little sticky. The bathrooms are kept pretty clean and their popcorn is ok. I think that for the money, it is a good theater.
Biggest rodents I have ever seen! – During the movie the largest rodent I have ever seen scurried across the wall of the theater - twice! Some people got up and left (it was almost the end of the movie so we stuck it out). On the way out we stopped to talk to the manager but kept going when he was already speaking to another patron; we overheard him explain that they know about the rodents and that it is an ongoing problem. They offered no refunds and no apologies. Metro is the closest movie theater to our house, but I am certain that we will not be returning, it's worth the extra drive to not have to worry about being bitten while watching a movie!
Way too small – If you like watching a movie in the confines of an airplane then this is the theater for you! The bigscreen room at Magnolia Hi Fi is larger that the theaters here.
Metro Parking Beware – When thinking about attending a movie at the Metro, consider the parking situation first. There's not much, but street parking is free, otherwise you get the privilage of parking in a Diamond lot. My car was broken into while attending a recent movie and while Diamond says, "We Care" they mean they're there for you if you need air in your tire or a battery jumped, but they could "Care Less" if your car is vandalized while on their property. It's too bad Metro is affiliated w/ them, but it's something to keep in mind while deciding wich theatre is best for you to attend.
Crying Room in back – This may not be the most modern movie house, but for new parents--the crying room in back is a godsend. Call ahead, find out what movie is showing in that theater, reserve a spot in the room, and then go out to the movies with your partner and new baby. You may not be able to hear all of the movie if your kid starts to cry--but it won't bother the rest of the theater and you get to get out of the house for the evening.
