WORST POPCORN IN TOWN !!
November 01, 2017
Besides the actual movie most people come to a movie theatre for the open-air concession experience before entering the theatre. This used to be the case at the Movie Tavern but they've changed. Now entering you are welcomed by an full bar area which doesn't fit the movie experience at all, and it doesn't appear to be a family-friendly environment, and I didn't see 1-person actually using the bar. Now there is no concession area so you can't enjoy choosing snacks, fresh popcorn or drinks before proceeding to your seat. This is why most people used to enjoy going to a movie theatre and all the fun for the kids was looking at the concession candy and food and drinks, this goes for adults too, but now you only can sit at the bar or go take your seat, this sucks. You also have to have pre-assigned seating which also takes away from the first-come-first serve movie experience, another poor experience. At my seat I was met by a nice "server" who apparently comes to your seat to take an order for food and drink. I ordered a small popcorn (small bag no bigger than a soda cup) and a coke totaling $11.00 !!! You have to be kidding me. The popcorn was the worst ever, cold, stale and it stuck to your teeth and I couldn't eat it. On top of that they now expect you to tip these "servers and runners" of food. So now this popcorn and coke cost me over $13.00. Price gouging for sure. When I left I there was a "runner or server" waiting to take my bill. I told them about the terrible popcorn and all they could do was say "sorry". No effort was made to remedy an unhappy customer with poor quality food. This was just a totally bad experience for me and I do not plan to return. I'll go to New Town where they still do things the old enjoyable way.
