  • Stopped here to see the joker. It’s a little old time feeling inside and I would like to see it be a little cleaner and keep the same feel. That would be the reason for the reduced star. The volume on the movie was just a little too high. Overall though, I really liked this place. The popcorn was excellent and the prices for the food seemed fair. I really like that they use reusable dishes for their food. I would like to see the wait staff in the theater be a little more friendly. The guy waiting on us seemed like he was annoyed to be waiting on us, like he was doing us a favor to allow us to be in his presence. Overall it was a good experience, hopefully if the employee with the man bun reads this he’ll be reminded that it never hurts to be friendly and welcoming to people.
  • I was upset when they turned my favorite music venue, The Ritz, into a movie theater oh so many years ago. However, look how well it turned out! They've been serving great movie-themed food for years, and the service is always quick and perfect. The amazing videos they play before the movie starts are always a wonderful vintage montage of weird relics from the past. I only watch movies at the Alamo.
