I have read all these reviews about how bad this theatre in and feel like I have to offer a different point of view.
I have probably been to this theatre over 200 times as I live fairly close by. A lot of these comments can apply to ANY theatre. Loud children, people not turning off their cell phones, high-priced concessions, people talking, etc. I haven't been to a theatre that there WASN'T a problem with this, especially during the summer when kids are out of school. I think that you as an individual have to accept that you are not sitting in your own living room and are unable to control the environment. I have most certainly told people to be quiet or shush. I have TOLD them to leave. They have plenty of staff there, if there is that much of a problem, got get management.
I think it's unfair to label this theatre as "unsafe". There is constant traffic in the parking lot, so I think it would be difficult to steal a car or break into a car. Notice none of these reviews say that THEIR car was stolen or broken into. Unless you can provide facts, you are just speculating. I agree they should probably put a security guard on a golf cart in the parking lot on busy weekends. But, in over ten years of attending movies here, I have NEVER had a car problem or an incident in the parking lot, nor have I read or heard of one. And, to use the word "thugs" is just a code word for Hispanics or African-Americans. I would suggest you try to find an all-white segregated theatre if this is a problem. River Oaks comes to mind.
I have seen the bathroom problem where kids let in other kids by the bathrooms. I have no idea why they let that go on. I have stopped kids before when I see it, but it's not my job to police it regularly.
I swear some of these reviews were written by people who own other theatre chains. They offer movies for $5 on weekdays before noon. They offer a matinee price before 6PM. Their full-price admission is no more than other theatres in Houston. Any time there has been a problem with audio or video, I have promptly been given a free pass, whether I watched the rest of the movie or not. And if you complain about the concession prices, join the AMC MovieWatcher club and get free discounts all the time. You also get free movie passes. If you don't take the time to get the card, you don't deserve any discounts. You can buy coupons for discounted movies and concessions on eBay at any time. I usually save about 30% to 40% on every trip there using the AMC card and discount coupons. If you can't do these things, please stay home or go to another theatre and leave more room for me!
