This theater sucks. It is honestly the worst theater in North Carolina. In my opinion they should shut it down and build a better one or put something better in its place. The screen is too dark, sometimes the movie isn't adjusted correctly and it is blurry, The sound system sucks in both theaters, And in one half the speakers sound busted and the sound sounds like people talking out of a radio, The seats are not so good. Some of them are torn, and some of them are unsteady, If 6 people don't show up to see a movie they will not show it. If you have 3, 4, or 5 people the man will still turn you down. And he won't stay and wait if any more people will show up. Sure its a good theater for little kids. But for adults who want to enjoy a movie and get their moneys worth it is not a good theater at all.
