    And the people that constantly kick the back of your seat! That’s why I like the very back of the cinema lol. No one to kick your seat, but now since they barely clean up, probably all the trash is scooped up back there.

    Ok so I have a story,
    I went to the movies with my family and my mom ordered a pretzel and they were like "ok we'll deliver it to you in the theater" and we we were like "ummm okayyyyyy" so halfway through the previews we see the people walking towards us so we were like "oh it must be the pretzel" and they give it to my mom and it in a PIZZA BOX. So we open it and it's a FRICKIN JUMBO PRETZEL. I swear that thing was ten inches wide! And we just sat there laughing and my mom says "no wonder it was so expensive!"

    I thought this was gonna be secrets on their food. Like “order a small drink it’s the same size as the medium and cheaper. “ or like “they say it’s one refill, but you can get unlimited because we’re trying to get rid of it by the end of the night” I was like “let me take some notes for next time” , but guess not 😂

    As a former theater manager, sounds like y'all weren't the best employees... and didn't work at the best locations.
    I still don't care about people bringing in snacks though.

    I worked at Cinemark. And the worst thing about it is the fact they reuse their hot dogs. I'm not kidding Ive had to wash and freeze 20-30 already cooked hotdogs. And they will do this as many days straight as it takes to sell them. Oh and they don't clean the seats. It's disgusting

    The movie theater I go to they take your ticket br u sit down then when movie starts one worker stays in there the whole time. It would be very hard to see two movies if you only paid for one where I go
