My family is new to the area, and we passed Venture Cinemas many times and passed on it assuming it would be run down and dirty. We were wrong
My brother is a youth pastor, and he often takes his youth group there because the movies are so cheap and affordable for young kids. My husband and I attended a movie with them one Saturday, and we were so impressed. Granted, the theater is not brand new, but it is clean and presentable, and it's easy on the pocketbook. There is always a large selection of movies to choose from, and they are not old at all.
Because life is so busy, we have trouble finding time to watch movies when they are first released. We have discovered that if it is not an action packed movie that needs a high definition sound system for maximum enjoyment, then we do better to wait a couple of weeks to catch the movie at Venture for only a buck. The popcorn is great, and there are lots of video games for kids to play while waiting. We have also discovered that some nights the Venture Cinema is quite a happening spot with a very diverse crowd, (not just young kids). Venture Cinemas is a perfect deal for a movie out without all the expense. 5 stars for the value and variety!
