More supervision needed at this theatre 7/13/2009

One Firday night I took my son to visit this theatre. Upon arrival we realized there were no lines to get in and the tickets were very cheap. Once we entered the theatre it was a ghosttown and we could clearly see why. The place was a mess! There were spilled buckets of popcorn all over the floors, empty cups left on the chairs, and other trash left thoughout the theatre floors. Once the movie began we were the only viewers in the room. About 20 minutes into the show the film went to a split screen with the movie shown with the top half of the picture on the bottom and the bottom half on the top. We waited patiently for it to straiten out but when it didnt I went to ask for help. I left the viewing room and immediatly walking around the corner was the popcorn stand where I found one of the young gentleman there with his hand in the popcorn holder and a mouthful! He even had popcorn falling down his chest & belly. Once he finished chewing, embarrasinhgly, I told him the film was messed up and he walkie talkied someone to fix it. Upon re-entering the movie I advised my son not to eat any more of the popcorn & why. This little 9 year old was completly disgusted that someone was eating the popcorn out of the machine! so not only did we sit in a dirty theatre, the film was messed up, and we couldnt eat the snack we had bought. I have not been back to this theatre. When we were leaving I wanted to approach the boy and tell him that we wanted our money back for the popcorn. He quickly walked into a managers room behind tickets sales and closed the door. I had had enough of the place and just wanted to exit, so i never got my refund...This was all at an early evening movie on a friday night. At such an early hour i would expect the theatre to be clean, and on a friday i would expect it to be packed...neither was the case and i now know why. Pros: close to home, very cheap tickets Cons: film errors, messy floors & chairs, unprofessional staff more

AAA Best Rates Best Place 2/13/2008

What a difference!!! New management was brought in and my old home town theater is back in business.\r The first thing I noticed was the FRIENDLY atmosphere, the cleanliness and someone to actually greet me as I came through the door. The prices were extrememly reasonable(Matinee $5, Adults $6 after 6pm) for first run films,the pricing on this web page is not correct, the concession prices were a little high, but as I understand it that is where theaters make their monies. The concession stand I just have to comment on, because of it's cleanliness, I looked for something dirty,old something, but was completely surprised, I actually did not mind spending the extra for the service and product. The popcorn was fresh and tasted really good, when I commented on it the lady told me it was made with TLC just for me, and that in its self made me feel appreciated for my comment and my business. The theater I was in was also clean. The restrooms once again I was expecting to find something, but again was surprised they were clean and as I was in there the staff was in checking and making sure all was clean. I found the manager to be extremely knowledgeble and friendly not to mention funny. What a difference. I highly recommend this theater to my friends and family. If you want a reasonable,safe, clean and friendly place to take the family or just yourself this is the theater to try in our area of Rhode Island. The neighboring theaters like Lincoln or Providence where I paid almost double the price for tickets have all the newest features but they couldn't make me feel welcomed or appreciated even with all the newest stuff and high prices. So again if you are looking for fun at a reasonable price with good service and good atmosphere, this is the place to go. Pros: Atmosphere is great, prices are great, parking is ample, cleanliness is great Cons: could use newer seating but still clean comfortable more

Avoid Like the Plague 6/5/2007

As i walk through the door i noticed the complete lack of other movie go-ers. I simply shrugged this off and figured, hey its a tuesday evening. I was a little surprised when they charged me for my 2 year old, but i guess they have to make money somehow right. I could have driven a couple more miles and went to Lincoln for the same price, but i figured id save some gas. Little did i know it was the worst decision i had ever made. I walked into the theatre to see that it completely lacked any floor lighting, the floors were covered in a layer of popcorn with a nice stick underneath. The only sound in the theater came from the lone speaker in the center just below the screen. All the makings of a great movie experience. I could tell this one would be a real winner. So we started watching Shrek the 3rd only to watch the screen turn to total blur after a matter of only 15 minutes. Surely someone would fix this right? Well, not until i waited 10 minutes and complained. About 10 minutes after the movie came into focus and we were well under way with this sub par movie experience. Not too long after this happens again. This time the couple, that made up the rest of the people in the theater, went to complain. After about 15 minutes more of blur i decided to complain again as well. We were able to watch the last 20 minutes of film in clarity. When i went to speak to the manager about this the first thing he had to say was that no refunds could be given because we stayed to see the ending. I guess according to apple valley all that matters is the start and end. He managed to utter an apology only after first stating that there was nothing he could do about our terrible movie experience. Pros: Completely devoid of other movie go-ers Cons: Everything. more
