Hokay--I know this sounds like a lame question but here goes--

I put the address for Cinemark Dollar Cinemas 16 into my gps. The location it took me to was an empty field.

The address I have on this place is 5063 NW Loop 410.

Assuming you're starting out travelling southbound at a location on 281 just north of 1604, how EXACTLY do you get to this theatre? Can anybody enlighten me?

281 S to 410 W, exit Summit Parkway.......but why on earth would you willingly go there?

Wait......may not be summit pkwy--may be Evers Road, but it's on the right off the service road by Sam's. And still, why would you want to go there? LOL

I went there one time to catch something that wasn't showing anywhere else and almost had to leave my shoe behind because it was glued to the floor LOL it must have been 2 months worth of soda spills on the floor.

That's sort of what I was getting at. I would take that dollar and visit a redbox. You can minimize the touching of those by reserving your movie online and you just have to swipe your card when you get to the machine. Not that I'm a germaphobe or anything, but that Dollar Cinema is just gnarly.

What's worse than "gnarly" ?? Whatever it is it would fit this moviehouse.

I was in the theatre business for nearly 30 years. I once went to see a movie at the Cinemark Dollar Theatre. When the show hit the screen, about 1/4 of the picture was blank. I knew exactly what it was, and it takes all of 3 seconds to fix it. It went on for about five minutes, and I went out and told the ticket taker to let the projectionist know his aperture plate was not in all the way on my screen. He said he would. Ten minutes later it still was that way. I went back to the same guy, and asked him if he told the "projectionist". He said he had, and then asked me if I was some kind of pro or something! I assured him I had many years experience, and I would never let a show be shown in my theatre so poorly and unprofessionally! The problem was never fixed, and I never returned.

The concession prices are extremely high there, too. I highly recommend NOT going to that theatre. I know it's the only dollar theatre left in town, but you'd definitely be better off renting a movie.

It's not that bad. But I've only been there once. Exit Summit Parkway on 410 going west. It's the first exit after the Callaghan and Babcock exit. You could just exit at Callaghan or Babcock and stay on the access road. It's just past the Walmart on the right.

I use Cavendars as my landmark...movie theatre is up behind it a little off to the left.

I didn't think it was that bad...just needs a stick up or two I'm thinkin' what do you want for a 1.50? and be able to get out of the house for a little bit..and you don't have to bring the movie back
