Default I hate our Theaters!

We have two theaters in town, both owned by the same people, and they suck. For about the last year they only have 1 show a day - 7:00 except on Saturdays they have 3. Which really sucks for me because i have class on weekdays during that time, and i have work every weekend when the shows are on so i can never go.
I was really looking forward to seeing "23" the new Jim Carrey movie, but of course our theaters aren't playing it! They suck!
I wanted to see Borat also, but nope they didn't play that one either.
And of course they are the most expensive Theater i have ever been to. About 7.50 for a ticket, and for a large popcorn and pop its about $18.

student price is somewhere arround $7 here... and a pop is like $6 and popcorn is about the same...

Think of it this way, the fewer movies you see the more money you save!

"renting" the movies later is just so much easier and cheaper

I haven't been to a theater since the day Clerks 2 came out.

This picture is as old as it looks

Come to Teaneck. $4.00 all the time.

We might not get the first run movies, but hey, I never go out the first week to see a movie anyway. I got the best deal going. This theater is only one block from my house. The downside to this theater is that it'* a bit old (70 years). No Stadium Seating. No Big Multi Channel Sound. And the seats do not have cup holders. I tend to overlook these deficiencies. They also have 4 screens into this old building.
