I was appalled with the staff at last night's 6:45 New Moon showing! The movie started at 6:45 and even though there were people lined up into the parking lot, the staff did not allow entry until 6:27! It was COLD, there were 2 pregnant women & children in line - since 4:30! A gentleman in line tried to get the attention of a young man inside at approx. 6:15 & was abruptly flipped off! Once we were allowed in, the staff were as cold as the weather outsided. As a business owner, I would want to know if my employees acted so unprofessional, but there seems to be no way to contact the establishment, with the exception of the recorded messages. This has not always been the case with this theater, so I feel investigation into this incident is a good business decision.

I dont understand the people who have a problem with the website...its incredibly simple. all you do is click on the name of the theater and it lists all the movies, the descriptions, and the show times.also im sure if they gave out their private number that people would just be calling for stupid things such as asking "what time does this movie start?" when there is already a number for that. also...i am well aware that digital projectors cost a ton of money and are probably hard to obtain for such a small theater. as for the award winning movies...some of those are only released in the bigger cities first. overall i think this is a good theater and people need to stop complaining

A "decent" value. However, the owners need to upgrade projection to digital (in ALL of their theatres). Great sound in Dolby Digital, but film prints are now passe.

You also need to expand your films to include the occasional critic's choices. For instance, Petoskey Cinema did not do a first or second run of "Slumdog Millionaire" but ran the same horror schlockers that they run at their other regional cinemas ("Bellaire Cinemas"). Only one of their cinemas will run a well-hailed movie (Charlevoix Cinema). This is true with nearly EVERY Academy Award winning film.

Stop running only junk movies (your theatres are almost empty for those films anyway). This area deserves better films--and people WILL attend if offered in shorter runs. I don't begrudge your showing of nominal to crud films (you need to make a profit), but get some decent cinema, too.

Heart disease is a killer. Many cinema chains are offering no-transfat oils on their popcorn. It doesn't taste ANY different, so why not do your part to offer healthier snack alternatives? The Traverse City State Theatre offers a low sugar, 70% cacao dark chocolate that jumps off the shelf. It makes that other stuff pale by comparison.

The prices are a lot cheaper than most places. Popcorn is made fresh in front of you, and that is unlike many other movie theaters. Also the website has descriptions, showtimes, ratings, etc. (what more does it need?) and the staff is always very friendly.

i am a long long time patron of you cinema and lets just start by saying these few suggestions:there should be credit purchase,all theater seats be the same, and 3-D movies be shown.being in the customer service field my self you have to think of the people who are walking through the door. if you want them to come back you have to supply them with what they want (within reason of course!) :)bring back the flavor for popcorn, the cappucino machine and for Gods sake, have a member greet movie goers as they come in!also, boosters for little ones would be nice also!

Your new web page is the worst I have come across. There is no information on it regarding current shows. Very frustrating. Info wire was a better site. Not sure why you changed. If it was to save money, you certainly get what you pay for--junk.

Your web page is the most screwed up page I have ever seen. It used to be very easy to find the shows that are playing and get the times they are playing. Why did you ever chage the page to the new format? Big Mistake!Tom Rosel--Petoskey

I have been a frequent patron of the theatre. I was leaving one day in the early spring and hit a massive pot hole while exiting. The damage to my car was extensive, about 3500 dollars. I had the manager witness the damage and got the regular manager's number. I spoke with him several times and finally after six months and having to threaten with legal action the owners finally contacted me. She smugly told me the it was not her portion of the lot so she wasn't responsible. It belonged to the developer of the entire strip. So my car went un-repaired because It took so long for me to find out who was responsible for the damage. So just don't hit a pot hole in their lot!

I'm a local and this place is nice. They are normally fast when it comes to speed of service, however improvements could be made in the price of their tickets! Overall - ***

We love heading up to Petoskey, and one of the great things is the cinemea! The people are so nice here! They keep the cinema very clean! Once we went and there was a slight problem with the film, the lady let us know about it and told us if it was too distracting to let her know and we'd get our tickets refunded!

Our family enjoyed going to this movie theater on vacation. It is perfect for those rainy days. The popcorn is good, and the theater's are rather large.
