Re: “Carmike Hickory 8

Despite the recent tragedy at this theater, we will continue to attend movies here and support the great staff. Antioch is being revitalized, and some mentally ill patient will not stop that from happening. We'll be there next week, watching a movie.

Re: “Carmike Hickory 8

I love this movie theater! The staff are always friendly and it is very clean and so much nicer than paying a ridiculous amount to go to a packed theater to see a movie on opening weekend! I will continue to support this amazing local theater! Thank you for such an affordable day out!

Re: “Carmike Hickory 8

They must have done some remodeling because I thought the theater was pretty decent when I went! Honestly most of the other local theaters aren't any better, and they'll charge you over $10 more to see the movie. Fandago and quoted me $16.75 for an adult evening ticket at "normal" theaters (Opry Mills, for example). um...what?!!! This is a much better buy! (honestly the best buy would just be to wait until comes on Netflix or get Amazon Prime...but if you're desperate to see something in theaters, this is the best buy you can get!)

Re: “Regal Providence Stadium 14

This theater only has two good large screens, the smaller rooms have very inadequate sound systems, voices feel like they are through a pillow sometimes in these. The AC and ambiance is not quiet either. They do not pride themselves in AV quality like their competition in other cities.

Re: “Regal Hollywood 27

For the Memphisnative and zerankis coments.Do you know or care what the bad guy could put in a clear plastic bottle that looks just like water,obviously not.Read the signs on the front doors before you enter an establishment .
( dumb as a rock HA.).
Secondly, MemNative, you got your head up your ASS ,you don't know the difference between Police and or other Security do ya.The management of the business has the absolute right to search any and all back packs and or purses at anytime so deemed fit,and the security personnel at such a post would and do have absolute authority over such polices, so go and whine about rights to some of the folks who were in a theater when some asshole that came into a theater with a UNCHECK bag or purse and pulled out a weapon of some sort and let HELL rain down on unsuspecting patrons. Screw you and your feelings.

Re: “Carmike Bellevue 8

We like it. It's a NEIGHBOR theater that the Carmike CEO's have let go down hill. There isn't even a sign out on the road that tells you what's currently playing. If you encounter a problem...go to the management and it'll be corrected. It's a shame they haven't taken better care of this theater.

Re: “Regal Providence Stadium 14

Don't understand why this theater does not offer morning features in the summer when kids are out of school. We end up taking my grandson to Opry Mills because they offer earlier features. Providence is losing business because of this.

Re: “Carmike Hickory 8

Tonight my family visited the West Valley fun center for the last time until the security protocol regarding potential child predators is changed.
We had just sat down in the theater to watch a movie when a man walked up paused and then sat down next to my 10 yr old daughter. He started talking to her asking her to look at him, stating she was pretty and again to look at him. As my wife realized what he was saying he gets up and leaves the theater. I followed him out and into another theater and then went to get security to report a problem. I tell the first person I find to call security and explain what has just happened to us and that there is a predator fishing for young girls, While I'm waiting for the young man to get someone the person I am trying to repot walks out of the theater area past the staff and into the fun center. I am told that security is on it and I should go back to my movie. Reluctantly I follow the instructions believing that as staff they know how to handle these situations and everyone in the lobby has seen the guy so am no longer needed. After the film ends I exit to the lobby and attempt to get conformation from an officer that the issue was communicated and the individual has been dealt with. What I found instead was not one but both WVPD officers on site know nothing of a potential predator, clueless managers that claim they are just coming on and that your policies are to only involves PD when needed. As a parent I am gravely concerned that in an environment where children are at risk your staff, policies and processes are not up to par. The officer I spoke with was quite upset that I was the one reporting to them a predator risk and that management was not up to speed with the issue. One manager informed me that an individual was escorted off the property and that was probably the person at large. My issue is not with what did or did not happen to the person in question. My issue is that as a business that caters to families and children, a threat of a predator should be more of a concern to you and your staff than I experienced. Again I do not have an issue with a singular person but rather the entire security process regarding the reporting of a potential child predator. All security staff should be notified and pass downs to incoming staff should be done to ensure they are aware of potential risks. Local PD especially on site officers should know of risks and should be involved in deciding what risks are legitimate, and not left to management. I will begin a boycott of any and all establishments that are owned or operated by your organization. I will also be posting on any and all public sites to inform the public of your lack of concern for public safety, including Facebook and other fast moving information sharing sites until I receive communication that outlines changes to policy that attempts to better protect children in your facilities.

Re: “Carmike Bellevue 8

I've been to this theatre several times & found it satisfactory. The admission price of 5.50 after 4 pm is Great and is unmatched. So what if its not "new". Only problem I found was too cold one time but warmed up later on after movie playing awhile.

Re: “Carmike Hickory 8

Family and I went to see Cloudy with a chance of Meatballs @. There were some technical difficulties (sound disappearing for 5 minutes, full speakers not working until after 30minutes of movie start time) but it was perfect for our 3 who are all 5 and under. I am looking forward to taking them again. We are going to make this a monthly thing for them!

Re: “Carmike Hickory 8

We go to this theater all the time. It's the best deal in Nashville! For 2 bucks you get to see a great movie and take your whole family out without spending a fortune. Buy the plastic popcorn bucket (about $20.00) if you plan on coming a lot, and get it refilled for 3.50 every time you come back for the rest of the year!

Re: “Carmike Bellevue 8

I don't know why everyone's complaining unless the people writing in all CAPS are former teenage employees that were fired for being immature as is seen in their post... The Bellevue Carmine 8 is a nice older movie theater where you get what you pay for. The movies are cheaper then sounding theaters by several dollars, they let you buy tickets inside when the weathers bad (rainy/cold) and it isn't over run with kids like the green hills theater or nasty and dangerous like the Hollywood 27. I love the cheap movies on Tuesdays, the free refills of popcorn and soda that no one else offers and the adult, clean/safe atmosphere. If you're over the age of 16 and want to feel sfe watching a movie while saving a substantial amount of money via tickets & concessions give the Bellevue 8 a try. :-)
If you're a rude immature teenage that writes reviews in all CAPS please stay away!

Re: “Carmike Hickory 8

Went for the first time two weekends ago and it was great, yeah the building is old but completely clean. This is from a person with asthma and allergies, so you know it is not dusty and moldy like some cheap theaters. Snacks are normal Carmike price which is slightly cheaper then Regal. I rated comparing to the average regular priced theaters, and the only draw backs are the seats aren't inclined like most modern theaters and the reels can be obviously used, but hey you pay $2 so on that scale it's 5 stars. against regular theaters I'd say 3.5 to be precise.
