Could be better! – I've been to many theaters around the country and have seen better or worse compared to Regal Live Oak 18. Parking a more than sufficient to handle customers when blockbuster movies are released. The one thing I noticed when I arrived is that there were two long lines outside the theater (one from each entrance door). It's not like there were any releases (like Harry Potter) showing that day. I soon found out that only two ticket agents (friendly) were on the job and the waiting area for obtaining tickets was barely large enough to get a handful of people inside. It took too long to get through the line even with a few people. When then experienced a 5 minute hold-up at the section where you give your ticket to the agent--only one agent to handle all the theaters?? They should have split the two movies areas in two like many others do. The one agent was having problems with some kids who were trying to pull a fast one on him to see another movie. I just don't understand these people just don't get kicked out. The reception could have a used a little cleaning assistance like the theater seating areas. Of course we had the usual disrespectful movie-goers who could live without their cellphones/texting.
Over all its okay – Its clean! The staff are not always the nicest. For the amount of money you spend in the 2 hours your there they should make you feel like royalty. Overall its a good place to watch a movie.
Live Oak Cinema – I have only been to a select few movie theaters in town, but Live Oak is my favorite. Not only is it close to home - and my parents - it's clean, the employees are very nice, and the FLOOR IS NEVER STICKY!! I don't know of any other theater that never has sticky floors. Some people complain about the teenagers, but I've never seen anyone get out of hand. I have noticed that the teen crowd is very well behaved on this side of town, even at the Forum. I guess people in Live Oak have more manners. That says a lot about parents these days!! Anyway, I enjoy the theater and the atmosphere. I have left my own teens to watch their movie and let them call me afterward to pick them all back up. I feel that the theater is safe enough for that to happen. Their security guards are always around and watching out for the public. I highly recommend Live Oak over any other theater.
the Best Theater Around – omg. how can i paraphrase the professionalism of service and management at the Regal Live Oak within the 2000 words i have been given.it will be pretty hard, but i think i might me able to manage it.
First, the management is pretty great. though i am merely a teen writing this review, this may be concieved as bias. But i don't care because as far as i can see, there are only positives at the Live Oak. the management at the Live Oak contains both teens and people over 20 working there. but all of them are hardworkers. the management is curtious and pretty fast with getting you the items you had asked for. they try really hard to keep the customers happy and coming.
Second, the place is always clean. Whenever i enter one of the eighteen theaters, its always clean. Almost as if Mr. Clean came in there and cleaned it himself.
Third, you hear about people getting kicked out of the theater for stupid and poor reasons, untrue (or at least i have never seen it before). for example this guy wrote a review about going to the Live Oak and then being kicked out afterwards, for "Laughing and conversing" as he says; well the manager must have had a perfectly good reason for throwin him out. Unless the man is doin something self-centered and abrupt, any accusations are not true accusations but yet lies for justifying his reasons of acting immaturely. crazy right.
in conclusion, my insight of the Regal Live Oak may seem biased, but i have no need to input anything negative, as i have seen nothing negative for the past 4 years that i have been going there. And you can imagine how many times i go there, lol. a lot, especially on friday nights with my friends. and then saturdays with my parents, and then again. but i love this Regal Live Oak. its amazing. i can say this because i have tried some of the neighboring theaters. in my opinion, in comparison, they are nothing.
sometimes, not all the time – Teens do sometimes ruin the theater at the movies, they could be loud and texting but other then that, the theater is not all that bad>.
Teens ruin the movie! DO NOT TEXT IN A MOVIE! – From start to finish, these horrible teens were texting and talking loud during the movie. OH YOU HAVE TO ADD THE BABY! My friends and I, went to the movies to enjoy ourselves, not watch and listen to animals sent and receive text messages, and overhear their loud conversations.
Comfortable seats, good atmosphere – Great theater if you like management that is prompt in handling disruptions. Like all too many theaters now, you'll often find yourself here at a 9:30 p.m. movie with crying infants or rude people with cellphones, but that's not the theater's fault. This place is relatively clean, easy to get to, and has good parking. Seats are decent, but could be more comfortable.
Bad Management and Employees at Regal Live Oak Cinema – Tonite, Oct. 27, my 2 friends and I got kicked out of the Grudge 2. There was absolutely no reason to be kicked out. Everybody in the theater was screaming, conversating, and laughing. Until the security came in, people began to quiet down. The screaming and laughing continued as some people continued to talk amongst themselves. But other than that, most people including ourselves, were tranced into the movie. The theater was filled with many teens and out of everybody the security decided to kick us out. They had no right to do so. They claimed "people were complaining about us from the first row." When really, my 2 friends and me were in the middle of the theater and people in the front row couldn't see all the way back, in the dark mind you. If the security wanted to kick people out for screaming and laughing then I don't understand why we were the only ones kicked out. The security guy outside the theater was rude. The manager claimed to "have been watching us for 45 minutes" when the movie didn't start until 8:15, manager/security didn't come in the theater until about 8:30 and we were kicked out at 9:00. Obviously, they don't know how to tell time which is why that makes it a little more clear that they are liars. I only rated this a 1 because we got our money back. But when we wanted to talk to the managers and security more, to stand up for our rights, they ended up walking away from us. I thought this was extremely unprofessional. If that was me, at my job, I would have been fired on the spot. It was disrespectful. The customer is always right. We are customers. We paid to have their service, therefore we were definitely customers.
I would not recommend people watch movies at Regal Live Oak Cinema (Pat Booker) unless they plan on sitting in complete silence the whole time. Overall, management needs work. Security needs to act more like security instead of like rude people you would walk by on the regular.
Clean and Professional – We go here often, it is very clean and professionally run. We do not go to movies often because of the cost and my impatience to sit through something two hours when I know I could be doing something more productive, but when we do go here we are always happy. Except for the price of popcorn and soda. Almost $6 bucks for an xtra large pocorn. Please! I think everyone in the United States should boycott buying from concessions at the movies, and then we'll see the prices go down.
PISSED OFF and I LOVE this theatre... – OKay so I take my kids to see Doo 2 after having to leave in the middle of it last Saturday because my sonbecame Ill... so we take them back on Thursday, and there is NO ONE there, and they tried to charge us $5.25 for a 3 yr old.... and $5.25 for a 5 yr old... both of which usually sit on our LAPS the entire time..... I am outraged... I could understand if the show was going to sell out, but nobody was there. They've never even asked my chicldren's ages before and we've been seing movies there since the DAY they opened!! Then you add the popcorn and 2 large sodas to all of this, and there was no way we could afford to see it. My kids cried all the way home...
