“Like a Mom and Pop place”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 2 January 2014

We arrived a little early, and were treated quickly by multiple people behind the counter. very nice! They were all super friendly too. Food was adequate, better than the big theaters back home, Facilities were clean. It seated way more people than anticipated. Wish the seats had a higher back to them, but comfortable. Great place to go see a movie!

“It's The Only Place to Watch a Movie”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 8 December 2013

Been watching the big screen releases here since I was in high school (that's a long time!) and I've seen improvements/upgrades a bit over the years, however, they pale in comparison to anything on the Mainland! Without any competition they, in my opinion, have not tried to do anything to be cutting edge. Can't really say anything good or bad about this place so I'll leave it with an average review.

“Good for a night out”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 18 November 2013

The only movie theater on the island. Took a night off to see "Gravity" in 3-D. Staff was friendly (as is the case with pretty much all the islanders). Odd that there was no center section so you sit on the right or left. No a big issue but odd.

“Only place in town”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 7 November 2013 via mobile

If you can wait to see a movie then do it. They only accept cash. The lady that owns it runs the cash register and treats everyone like cattle. She has no personality and down right rude. Watch out for they're matinee times and prices that the show online. A lot of time you will get there to find out that they don't do matinee's for that movie or time or it's in 30 and that is excluded as well. Plus the theaters are old and out dated. Usually it is packed with load obnoxious locals. The walls are exposed cinder block so even tho they have 7.1 surround it sounds like you're in a tin shed.

“got busted for bringing in a bottle of water”

although, the show they were playing prior to the main movie was way more entertaining than previews. Good spot to get away from heat.
