I usually go to this theater during the day. I try and avoid going any time close to twilight. The last few times that I've gone there, the place was pretty empty, especially for a weekend. I didn't especially appreciate the fact that some of the movies were offerred in Spanish, it takes a showtime away from an actual movie an we are NOT living in a Spanish speaking country. The clientele that visits this theater varies with the time and day you go. Don't plan on actually being able to watch your movie of choice during a weekend evening. If it's a children's movie, be prepared to have kids running up and down the stairs or through the aisles in addition to talking loudly with their parents. Most of the time the parents do NOTHING to stop these undesireable behaviors. If it's an adult movie, be prepared for even worse displays of behavior: adults yelling out or having major long conversations with each other as if they were sitting in their living rooms at home, phones ringing off the hook with people answering them AND actually talking on them inside the theater, or having one person interpret the ENTIRE movie to another person. Theater jumping runs rampant here, so you will have kids running in and out during the movie. The concessions are PRICEY: 2 bottles of water and a medium popcorn cost me $18. From here on out, I'll bring my own goodies...it's not like the staff checks on the theaters during showtimes anyway.

Saying this place has culture is like saying a white sheet of paper has personality. An excellent place to feel insecure, as you will not be able to enjoy any film watched here since the locals tend to yell at the screen. Complaining could get you killed. The staff is very unfriendly, the interiors as well as most of the exteriors are often dirty. Police presence is obvious but pointless as they do little to prevent crime, and the area is a haven known to harbor gang violence. Intimidation and thefts are rampart, as scum like these enjoy getting a kick out of harassing anyone they perceive as a victim.

Don't fall victim to this dump! Poor service, overpriced goods and a horrible gang-infested location!

I had my purse stolen this weekend and the service was awful in trying to assist to this matter.

The wait time for a drink was ridiculous and the staff is not friendly at all!! I asked the manager for assistance and she did not give me options nor she did not try to help. The manager had poor service skills and for having all of my credit cards, a $700 dollar camera, cell phone and car keys stolen she did not even try to assist to my matter. The only response I got was " There is nothing I can do make a report with the police". She could of atleast asked her staff to help me look or turn on the lights right after the movie. NOTHING*
I work in the customer service field and I do not understand how this person was able to have this position and make more money than someone that may have better skills.

This place is for teenagers not a great place for family unless its during the day time. The officers have the worst attiude as if they do not want to hear your concern. I will never visit this place nor will I EVER RECOMMEND ANY OF MY CLIENTS, FAMILY or FRIENDS to this location. This is why many people travel miles away because of the bad service, safety and clientele that this theater carries. If I would of seen that the staff would of atleast helped me I would of felt a bit safe but that never happened. I hope this area changes their attitude and safety because it needs it.

Located in a busy shopping area this is a good place to drop the kids off while you do errands. There are twenty theaters to choose from so everyone can find something they like. There is an arcade located right outside the theater as well as several small places to eat. The theater is spacious so you can sit in comfort.
