The entry about the Carmike movie theatre several weeks ago generated quite a response, with most people agreeing that going to the movies in Great Falls is not a pleasant experience. But things may be changing: got an e-mail from Jim last night about his recent excursion:
I dropped you a line a month or so ago about the local Carmike theater. Well, my son and I went recently to Toy Story 1 & 2 in 3D. The theater has changed quite dramatically in the last four or five weeks. Namely, they’re hiring a whole new staff. Also, when I purchased the tickets to the movies…there was one guy who sold the tickets, he then tore the tickets and gave me the stubs… finally he told me to be in the theater at a set time. There was no usher/ticket person standing outside the theater… tearing tickets. My son and I just walked into the theater and sat down. The movie started on time. A much more enjoyable experience than earlier in the year.
So how about it – have any of you noticed any changes (for the better, hopefully) at the Carmike? Let us know.
