First we took our kids to see the Avengers there for a 12:45PM lunch show.

The sound was so loud that my kids were cringing and had their fingers in their ears (they are 9 & 10). People were complaining to the wait staff who kept saying - "it's only the previews” the movie wouldn't be that loud. Well it drove people from the room who asked for the manager. After the main movie came on it was still deafening (and I like loud movies and music!) I finally went out and asked for the manager myself. She told me "they have a machine that tells them if it’s too loud and - it’s not" When I pressed her on this, she then owned up to the fact that this movie's sound track was not made for their sound system and if she made the explosions and music softer you couldn't hear the dialog.

Anyway - it was her attitude that got me the most - it was clearly "FU" I'm the manager and what I say goes.

In fact when I first walked out there the manger was already speaking to a young woman who was saying she couldn't stand it in there and she would be glad to pay for her food she ordered and leave when she she was done eating it. She wanted her money back for the ticket so she could go see the movie in a theater with a modern sound system. The manager told her she could not eat it in at a table in the theater, if she got her money back - she would have to eat it in the hallway on the floor! Can you believe that????. If this girl was trying to scam them (and this is how the manager was treating her) I'll eat my hat.

We got part of our food in reasonable time, but after 40 minutes we asked about our pizza. We were told, they were having trouble with the oven and it would be another 25 minutes. Things break, and that can't be helped - but it was just insult to injury give all that was going on.

So after a ton of people complained - they finally turned it down - and though it was still the loudest I’ve ever heard it in a theater (and we go a lot) I at least didn't think we would permanently damage our hearing any more - it was just unpleasantly loud during the action scenes. I ahve never experenced that before except at live rock concerts. And let me repeat: I like my action movies loud - but this was literally hearing damage range.

So know this before you go:

- They apparently have an out of date sound system that can't deal with action movie sound tracks

- The management is defensive and hostile to customers - who are only be trying to help and make the experience better (or at least tolerable)

- If the oven is on the fritz - expect to wait an hour or more for pizza.

I've learned my lesson - I will not be seeing anything that depends on a decent sound track here again.

Not recommended vs. the other more modern and up todate theaters in the area. Too bad since I like the movie and food idea, it’s just poorly executed here.
