Chris was wonderful. He treated my friend and I, recently retired elementary school teachers, with kindness and respect. For a young man, his friendly, positive attitude was refreshing. He made the comfy seats and great seats even better! Thank you, Chris!

While not the fanciest movie theater around, this is our go-to place when we want to see a movie on the big screen and don't want to shell out a lot of money. The owners seem intent on upgrading as they can, so improvements are...More

For most of the past 20 years, theaters at this location seemed well below average. Loews, Entertainment, Sony, Entertainment (again) all tried and largely failed to run a good theater operation. 5 years ago, uncomfortable seating, failing projection equipment, and malfunctioning sound systems brought this...More

Worst movie theater I've been. Please don't come here. Place is disgusting! I showered the second I went home. I was not comfortable while I was there. Too gross!

This theater has seen better days. The theaters are fine, the place just looks run-down and in need of updates and repairs. The cafe downstairs doubles as the box office so concessions and tickets are sold at the same time. The theater was pretty empty...More

One of our worst movie experiences ever. We'd paid for the tickets online and arrived at about 3:20 for a 3:30 show. Lobby was crowded when we arrived and only got worse because everyone was still being held in the lobby at 3:45 with no...More

Took my family to the Apple Cinemas to watch the movie Home. The staff was very friendly, but the cinema was one of the "oldest" I've seen. Nice seats but the total experience was below average. Good ticket prices compared to more modern places.

We were taking my fiancee's nieces children to the movies and this was the only place still showing what they wanted to see. Was a long ride but worth the trip. Seems that everyone is $4.75 on Tuesdays, great price. The theater seats were low...More
