Character Counts – Please disregard any whiny reviews. If you want a megaplex experience, then go there.
If you want a independent, local theatre feel, the come here. Fresh popcorn, small seats, antiquated projector, all come standard.
Don't see special-effect heavy movies here, like Avatar. But everything else looks fine.
Also, the Tuesday/Thursday night ticket special special is well worth it.
Totally Awful – No stars. Dirty, tiny theater with uncomfortable seats. true story. At 6:45pm we bought tickets to the 7:15pm showingof Social Network. The woman taking tickets told us we were to early and we could not wait anywhere in the moviehouse. Even though it was cold (Sat Nov 6) we went outside, 10 feet from the ticket taker&where she could CLEARLY see us. At 6:55pm when no one else was asked to wait outside, we asked if we could go in. She said yes, and Surprise! There were 12 ppe already seated?? I spoke to a manager, "Mel" about it and she had no explanation and could not have cared less. But it gets better. At 7:25 when the movie (the trailers) had not started, some guy comes out and makes a pissy announcement that we all need to breathe deply, chiding us for not caring about a 10-15 min wait. Worst Experience Ever at a Cinema
Small crummy theater – Ok, they play some cool flicks. And yes, I can get over the sticky floors and disgusting crumbling staircases, tiny broken seats. But the cram crunch when one movie gets out and the next is trying to start makes everything crazy. People getting trampled. Next movie starting late. Everyone sweating ontop of each other. Ok kinda fun New York. And I'm gonna be going again, no doubt, because of the great indy movies. But put a little cash into renovation. Maybe just a decent-sized exit?
Terrible Theater - go down the road instead! – Cobble Hill- One bad experience after the next. First, the theater is very small and overcrowded. The power has gone out during a film on more than one occasion. With so many nicer theaters in the neighborhood why pay $12 for a 3-D film in a theater with uncomfortable seating that is so close to the screen? Since its local, it sells out on new films very easily and you are left standing in line if you don't book ahead. Our last experience really took the cake. We ordered our tickets hours in advance for a new release (a $4 charge). When I went to pick them up they were "not there". The manager refused to solve the problem. When I protested her handling of the situation, she became angry, and cursed at me on multiple occasions. You would expect that is what I should have been doing! To add insult to injury this 45 minute episode lead to a $35 ticket. I wrote to the owner and told him of what had happened. He was relatively unsympathetic (even a bit snotty) but after twisting his arm a bit he offered passes to make up for the film. Though I vowed never to return, I do try and support local businesses, so I gave them another chance. Guess what? When I tried to the tickets for a comparable film, they turned us away. The owner was called and he said he did not remember us and we could not remember if the first tickets were for a 3-D film. BAM, here I come.
cozy place for 4 theater place, that plays avatar. I really like it!
don't give your money in this shitty rip off place – I have been there today and spend $30 to see Avatar with my 2 kids. Then i am going to the counter and asking for the best deal on pop's and coke. ( one paper bag of pop's for $5.50 is already expensive, for the people who don't know how much mark up they make on this; it is sold about 30 times the gross price, plus a $4.00 extra on the glass of coke, wich is about the same mark up as the pop's, it is over & over & over priced ) so i did not purchase any thing.
I go out to the deli next door to buy a bottle of water and 3 boxes of gummy bears. ( $4.10 )
When i wanted to go back inside and watch the show with my children that F*#@(?! guy at the door tells me, you can not take the gummy bears inside, just the water!!! when i was trying to get back inside and rejoin my kids that same A#@*hole shot a terribly loud scream at me, telling me No, you only can take the water.
Let me tell you, if we where in france, were i am from, i would have punch the guys and blew his nose away, like the good old time. I am 42 years old, and no way this F*#@(?! D*#@%?! bag will treat me like that.
I decide to leave this rip off place, i oblige that guy to give me my money back and left this mentaly owned slizzy place at once, and with the dignity.
The owner, a frustrated small minded business owner who tries to rip people wallets with the help of our spoiled & demanding kids thinks he is on top of his game!!!
NO WAY MY BROTHER
NOT WITH ME
SEE YOU ANYTIME, ON A BOXING RING.
Below any standards. Do not go – I just came back from a screening of Where the Wild Things Are.
Theater #4. My first impression was that the screen was small and tell. And, indeed, we had to lift our heads through the whole movie. What were they thinking?
What was really unbearable though was the the projected picture was too big for their screen. The picture was significantly cut at the top and sides. It was horrible. Even the titles were cut at the sides.
It was worse than any amateur high-school screening I've seen.
Worst cinema experience I ever had.
That's not a way to watch a movie - Stay away until they fix their equipment.
