I had to say something after that last post of rhetoric, probably by an employee or a want-a-be manager. This is not one of Lubbock's finest theaters. They charge a little more at this theater too. Read the rest of my comments to see what the surcharge on the ticket (when compared to a respectible theater across town) will get you.
They have cops walking all over the place watching your every move. I enjoy the added protection, but what message is really be conveyed here? Obviously, this must be a troubled neighborhood or troubled clientel to need to keep this close of a watch over the patrons. Perhaps, they can find a way to watch over the patrons and their own equipment without making people feel unwelcomed. Movies 16 doesn't do this to you.
As with theaters in larger cities than Lubbock, they are trying to get way too much for the concessions. Speaking of concessions, twice within the last six months I ordered the popcorn and was left with this taste of an almost rancid oil in my mouth. Something is horribly wrong with their popcorn. I wish one of the TV stations would do a taste test here and expose this. By the way, I have always had friendly employees at the concession counter, but this cannot be said for the ticket sales people. Some of them are just outright unfriendly; hence, I only buy tickets out of the ticket dispenser.
In regards to that last post about a large parking lot, one might need to add, "...clustered with potholes, especially at all the entrances and exits." Finally, they fixed the potholes (probably not before being presented a repair bill from damage done to somebody's car); then they were lax about getting the parking lot striped once they finally got around to getting it tarped. Movies 16 has had issues here too in the past, so the two theaters are equals here.
As for sound quality in the theaters, I like the sound quality at Movies 16 better. That being said, Movies 16 has had some issues in the past too, but I feel that they have better-managed their theater. For instance, when has anybody walked into Movies 16 and was welcomed by a snoddy ticket sales person or anybody else for that matter? I cannot remember a time. Sorry that this cannot be said for Tinseltown.
I am not griping but would just like to have a more enjoyable experience when I visit the movie theater. Maybe, my visits will be less frequent as gas continues to climb.
I am really disappointed in this theatre. Arriving early I had to wait for 20 minutes to be served in the only concession stand among three that was open. This is poor poor management. Whomever was in charge should be re-run through any managent program that is offered. Or maybe they need to hire some 10 year old that can recognize when additional concession stands should be opened.
So there you have it, great place to watch a movie....But sneak in your own coke and popcorn if you want to get to see the whole movie.
