Review of Parkway 8 Cinema

Parkway 8 Cinema
Ranked #14 of 29 Fun & Games in Sarasota
Attraction details
Reviewed 8 April 2014

We have gone to this theatre a number of times, it is hard to beat a $2.00 movie ticket but you do give up some things. First of all, they are not always first run movies, next, the place smells, it is old and dirty. When you walk down a dark aisles with strange smells all around you, your imagination can take over. The seats are hard as rocks and the previews play forever.
If you want to spend $2.00 for a movie and want to get out of the house and see a big screen, not a terrible choice but do beware. It is old, smelly and not too comfortable.

We go see most movies that are here. Can't beat the price and the atmosphere is calm and relaxing. It's an older place but it's worth it to see movies that you don't want to pay $20 a ticket for. The sound is also perfect. I have sensitive hearing and can barely attend any movies without ear plugs but here it's not so loud I have to do that which I really appreciate. The sound is good and loud but the other local theaters go really overboard with the decibel they play their movies at. A+

Movies are cheap, theater is a little older but its great for folks that enjoy the movie experience but are willing to wait for a good price. It's amazing for a budget date, air hockey and a romantic comedy what could be better.

We were surprised to see a movie for $2.50. The theater is small and shows movies already shown in a big theaters. Clean and nice inside.

You can not complain about anything if you go for $2 to the movies right? Sure, it is old and a little dirty. Still! $2!!! Great job parkway 8 for keeping up this price!
