I am so confused about the experience I had with this place that I don't even know where to start. I suppose I can start by talking about the ticket booth. Whoever designed it must have had no idea we live in Minnesota. The ticket booth is outside.
I guess it's alright for about three months out of the year, but during the other nine you're going to have to deal with snow, wind, rain and whatever else our lovely continental climate brings us.
Aside from this obvious design flaw, the theater does look pretty nice and has a fairly good layout. My actual movie experience was good. I didn't get food so I have nothing to say about that.
The confusing part was when I first attempted to purchase a ticket. I knew that with a student discount, a ticket was about $9.00 or something. I didn't have my student ID, but I figured that a regular ticket couldn't be that much more expensive. Apparently it's about $10 more expensive though.
I couldn't believe my ears when the girl said the price was $19.00. I asked her if she knew I just wanted one ticket. She nodded her head and repeated the insane price again. I was lucky my friend had her student ID because she just bought my ticket for me.
I don't know if this was just some horrible mistake, because I know people who went there and paid regular price, but it wasn't nearly that expensive. I guess I'll let that little situation slide, but if I find out the price is actually that expensive I will never go there again.
The last time I drove by the theater, I noticed they enclosed the ticket booth. I guess they finally realized the stupidity of the original design.
