The filthiest theater I've ever been to – I took my 4 year old to the 11:30 Sunday showing of "Planet 51." When we walked up, the trash bins outside were OVERFLOWING with trash and the parking lot looked like there had been a party in it last night. It was obvious no attempt was made to clean up from the time before. We walked inside and the carpet was filthy and it was dark and smelled like a urinal. I mentioned to the kid selling me tickets that the front was a mess, and he apologized and said they would get it cleaned up. We bought out tickets and went to the concession stand to buy popcorn, and of course, the floor was sticky, the counter was filthy and there wasn't an adult working to be found. Just a bunch of high school or perhaps college kids, and they weren't too enthusiastic to help us out. We finally sat down (the theater was so dark you couldn't see anything, which was probably a good thing, judging by the sound of crunching under our feet) and waited for the movie to start. And waited, and waited. The projector showing commercials before previews locked up, so we were stuck watching the same logo flash before our screen. FINALLY at 11:45, some kid shows up in the projection room and starts the movie. Now we get to sit through trailers....Halfway through the movie, my daughter has to go to the bathroom. Of the six stalls in there, four had out of order signs on them. The other two were filthy, sticky floors, etc. The toilet paper dispenser was broken, and there was in industrial sized roll of TP on the floor. I picked it up, it was wet, and when I turned it over, it was moldy! We moved to another bathroom, it wasn't much better, only three working stalls, The trash was overflowing. About that time, we had had enough, and left. I noticed as we left, that NO ONE had made an attempt to clean up the trash out front. I will NEVER go to this theater again, and I'm going to tell everyone who will listen not to go there either. Not worth the health risks and for what you pay to attend a movie, I at least expect a working toilet with mold-free toilet paper!!!
