Best movie value – I've noticed that the reviews including a pros and cons section both have kids listed as a con. Being that I'm a kid (and the other rewiewers clearly are not) I'll give you my take on this theatre. This theatre is perfect for teens who wanna see a movie but are intimidated by skyrocketing ticket prices and vastly overpriced refreshments. The movie selection here isnt terribly great, with only 4 movies showing at a time, but the prices cannot be beat. On a normal night you can get a ticket ($7.75) and a snack($3-5) for the same price as the ticket price at othere theatres($11-13), and on a wednesday ticket prices are slashed to a mere $5. The theatres have a slight tendency to feel small even when they areren't even half full, and the carpeting can be a bit sticky at times, but I have never had problems such as other moviegoers using their phones in the theatre.
4.50 Bargin night!! – Even with all the Brooklyn based rude, loud, obnoxious characters, yelling, cell-phones, etc. even a few real beat down fights I have gone almost every weds night since i have been here, almost 4 years now.
Its like a whole adventure in addition to the movie!!!
I think they just cant help themselves, its not inbreeding but same results.
It could be a LOT worse! – This is NOT the prettiest theater in Brooklyn, but its an alright neighborhood theater. I noticed some of the things like sound proofing that was falling down just a little, but it isn't a bad theater experience. If they could spend a bit more money sprucing it up a little, and doing some more advertising I think they'd fill more seats. The times that I went there it was only about half full.
Editorial Review by Marcella Veneziale – Three-screen, long-operating Coney Island theater shows the same Hollywood blockbusters as Loews but at nearly half the price.
ALL SEATS 4.50 ON WED!!! – This theatre is not the nicest place but they show first run movies and its cheap. Check it out for some Coney Island character..
