You know a place is bad when even the management doesn't care. I've had bad experiences before as a customer, but having actually applied to work there I literally get this experience. I get a call 4 months later (2 after having found a new job), the manager I spoke to, not only seemed high, but couldn't even answer the simplest question about the position. I try to give him a day I can do an interview and he just says "call me back later" and hangs up. I call back an hour later (to which he doesn't even remember calling me at first) to get this response "oh yea... listen dude, I just didn't get a good vibe from you so I called someone else".

I've worked for a lot of diffrent and some big companies (Disney to name at least one) and never had a manager act like this. Just find a new theater folks, one that isn't so over priced.

Pros: Clean and neat theater

I received terrible customer service at this theater. Because of a problem with their computer system, my tickets purchased online did not show up. Instead of apologizing, the Guest Services staff argued with me for a half hour, insisting that it had to be my mistake. It was not until they called my credit card company did they give me my tickets. I will never go back there. Go to the AMC/Lowes in Stony Brook instead - they are very nice there!!

I paid for 10 tickets to the midnight showing of Harry Patter and the HBP on June 25th, 2009. On my tickets it says the movies showtime is Tuesday, 12:01am on July 14, 2009. Me and my children and my nephews, who moved to Virginia in May and I drove down to pick up this past weekend because I have always taken them to the midnight premier, show up at Island 16 in Holtsville, NY at 10pm on Monday, July 13, 2009. We are then told we have come on the wrong night. That te movie is not being shown until Late Tuesday night into Wednesday morning. That even though are tickets CLEARLY state 12:01AM TUESDAY JULY 14, 2009, we are incorrect in showing up on Monday night. There is apparently a separate movie time zone for these people. We were not the only ones told this, because when I went back to speak to a manager of the supervisor who told me this, there were still people showing up to watch the movie. While we were standing outside speaking to security who would not allow us in saying the theatre was closed. There were EMPLOYEES some dressed in Harry Potter outfits allowed in to. When I asked security why they were allowed in after the theatre was suppose to be closing they say because they work here. NO DOUBT ENJOYING THE MOVIE I PAID OVER $106.00 TO GO SEE WITH MY KIDS THAT SAME NIGHT!!!!! MAYBE THEY OVER SOLD THEIR TICKETS AND REALIZED SOME OF THE FRIENDS WOULD NIGHT HAVE SEATS. Who is running this circus and do they celebrate New Years Eve on January 2 at 12:01AM.EXTREMELY PISSED!!!!!

I like the Island 16 Theatre, it's the best one around... all of the theatres are really comfortable and very clean... they have a lot to offer from snack bar to a small cafe.. it's a bit pricey but then again, what theatre isn't. Overall a great place for a movie.

I tried calling their phone number to find out what movie was playing with Closed Caption (my gf is hearing impaired) All I kept getting was the stupid machine which kept saying goodbye when it couldn't transfer me. They have no concept of customer service, all they want to do is sell you tickets, tickets that are overpriced. Their website socks so bad, and it doesn't list what titles are playing with CC. They don't care about me, I don't care about their business. Never Island16 again.

I went here and I loved it! They have many theaters, a HUGE snakc bar, and the place itself was huge. It even had a party area and a mat for kids to play on. It was clean and easy to find your way around.

Pros: CLEAN RESTROOMS, CLEAN LOBBY AREA, FRIENDLY AND HELPFUL STAFF, STADIUM SEATING

Cons: SNACK PRICING HIGH

My biggest problem is the cost of the concession stand. A regular order of fries with cheese and a medium soda was priced at $8.00+ with tax. What a major ripoff......As well as the other concession vendors in this cinema.

Great Theatre! All stadium seating rooms! The only theatre I have even seen with Reserve Seating ("Directors' Hall" for an additional charge of about $2.50), but that gets you a larger, leather seat with more leg room and a calmer/quieter audience (you get to choose your seat). You also don't need to stand in long lines at the concession stand because they have a special line for those with Director's Hall tickets. They also come into the theatres with travelling concession stands prior to the movie beginning. They have a small bar/restaurant in the lobby, as well as a pizza/nacho/hot dog stand, ice cream shop and an arcade. The parking lot is always packed, but that is expected of any movie theatre; however, there is always a spot, even if it is far away! The bathrooms are relativley clean, but lines can also get very long! The lines at the regular concession stand can get very long as well, as the staff works rather slow most of the time. They have electronic tickets boxes, for people paying with credit/debit cards. They are always empty and working, so you can bypass the lines with this option! You can also buy your tickets online. (Note: You can't choose your Director's Hall Seat Numbers with Online or Electonic Ticket Box purchasing). They also have an outdoor seating area, with plenty of tables and chairs, where you can sit and wait for your movie while enjoying some snacks or people-watching. I have seen, on numerous occasions in the warmer months, a guy playing guitar and singing in this area. There is a Chili's and a Wendy's in the same parking lot, also a very good Marriott Residence Inn hotel. It is close to the Expressway and other major roads. Definatley my favorite movie theatre, ANYWHERE!

PROS: Director's Hall Reserved Seating, Clean
CONS: High Fee Charge for Reserve Seating

This is the only movie theatre that I will go to. The stadium seating and comfortable seats almost make you feel as though you are watching the movie in your own home. The staff is very nice. There are plenty of places to eat inside and around the theatre. This is a terrific theatre to bring a date. The movies always start on time, and the staff is fantastic.

PROS: great staff, lots of places to eat, very comfortable
CONS: new movies often sell out, so buy early

This place is huge and very nice. The theaters are clean and all have stadium seating which makes it so you have a clear view of the screen reguardless of who is in front of you. Obviously it gets crowded on weekends, but more popular
