We bought tickets for Bohemian Rhapsody at Franks and loaded up with a large popcorn, drinks and candy.and walked to the middle of the back row. The ticket taker told us our movie was In theater #8. We settled in, coats off, hat stored, purse...More

Love tight wad Tuesdays. Was disappointed to return for the season to see all the broken seats still in the theatres. Seat backs literally fall into the legs of the person behind you. Have to push seats forward to cross your legs. Seats in permanently...More

We come here often and love the small atmosphere . Lots of parking out front and you don’t have to take a big hike to get to the front door. The seats are really comfortable and recline a bit . My favourite part is it...More

If you like a hot theater with the a stench of mold and urine then this is the place to go! I hate to leave anyone a bad review but this was unacceptable. I'd say 10% of the chairs were covered in large black plastic...More

This is a cheap local theater. Understand Venice is a predominantly white senior demographic. Do you want you to drive 40minutes to watch a movie? No, then shut up. How is the resolution and sound? Good. Literally people complain about anything. Maybe if people didn't...More

Wanted to take my grandson to the movies. Frank's is cheap on Tuesday. We had a nice afternoon. It could use a coat of paint and a carpet shampoo but out was ok.

there is nothing good about a visit to this theater. Filthy carpet, water $4.25, broken seats, inefficient air conditioning. They obviously just don't care. I'll take AMC any day.

$8.50 slushie...$6.50 small drink is a bit much. They have to do something about the broken seat backs. Every seat but one in the aisle we were in was broken.

Lucky for them that they are the only theatre in town.... for if they had any competition they would be out of businesses. I will gladly drive a little further to Sarasota to a clean functional establishment. It’s not the age of the facility that’s...More
