Hickory's newest theatre is by far the worst in every category except cleanliness and view of the screen. The "criteria" for rating this theatre only deals with what it is good at. Try "customer service", or "quality of popcorn", or "overall value". Or how about the simple fact that it's the weekend and you cannot get on-line to find out what's playing because no one has reported it yet. The Crown and the Carolina theatres have their movie listings posted, both have better popcorn and both employ people with "personalities". The Carolina rates best for "employees", best for "popcorn", best for comfort, and definitely best for "VALUE". I only go to the Carmike when my kids drag me there to see something they positively have to see right now!
Pros: movie selection, cleanliness
Cons: slow service, worst popcorn, "no personality"
