User reviews on Bangor Mall Cinemas 10
It is a VERY dirty movie theater. The concessions are priced way too high, so it's become standard for us to bring our own candy and soda as we can't afford $30 for snacks at a movie. The sound is not very good, but we like that they offer Imax and 3D movies in Bangor. Ticket prices are high, but they're high everywhere.
And I had to respond to the person that left a comment about the ticket Nazi! Too funny! I know EXACTLY who you are talking about. The guy is a little too "motivated" about keeping people out unless they have their stubs. Sometimes a girl has to pee, and it would be much nicer if we weren't treated like we are trying to sneak into a free movie after we've paid and he saw us leave the theater to use the bathroom.
So the Theatre is fine. Comfy seats and clean. The projection is of very good quality as is their sound. What I take issue with is
1. The fuzzy pink handcuffs as a price in one of their gams. While I'm not a prude I do think this is highly inappropriate for a family entertainment center and
2. The ticket Nazi. You'd better not go to the bathroom without your ticket or he won't let you pass even if he remembers you went in to begin with. At lease he's lost weight so good for him.
Bangor Mall Cinemas is a good overall theater. The only one in the area that offers stadium seating and a wide variety of new releases. Ticket prices are reasonable, but as with most movie theaters the concessions are overpriced. One suggestion if you are going with the family is a stop at Leadbetter's on Stillwater Ave (which is right down the road). Pick up some candy, water or soda and put them in your wife's oversized purse. You will probably save yourself $15-20. Although, it is hard to avoid the buttery popcorn. A large is $6 and if you like movie theater popcorn, it's wicked good bub!
I love it here it might be a lil cold n lil to much on the price for food but hey I enjoyed it overall. s*** pple complaining bout price s*** go to the city where its twice wat we pay for everything. I bet you'll be back.
I'm not sure I understand why there are such negative reviews here. Every other cinema I've been to in Maine is of equal or lesser quality, but with staff that's half as kind. I think the staff are the reason I prefer this cinema over my local theatre (despite the fact that Bangor is an hour further away). Very friendly, patient, and professional. They have a decent spread of movie choices and concessions too. Prices are very reasonable (coming from out-of-state, where an average movie ticket would run you over 12$ a head and 3D was 17.50$)
I will continue to make the drive up to Bangor, passing by two other cinemas on the hour long trip. If that isn't a testimonial, I don't know what is.
Bangor Mall Cinemas is not a high enough caliber theater to charge the prices they do. Even the Sony owned theaters I have frequented charge the kind of prices this hometown theater does, and they had individual rocking/reclining seats with adjustable speakers in the seats, vibration enhancement and it was so clean you could eat off of any part. This theater has 1/2 of it's screens that even offer stadium seating, there are smells of mold in all the theaters and the cleanliness of this place gets an F- If you are going to charge a premium price, offer a premium product. Between the price structure, the rude/uninterested employees and the utter joke of the sound/picture quality leaves this place as one to pass on by if you get the chance.
Wow, I am appalled by the complaints of the prices in these comments. You all apparently don't understand how the movie theater industry works. Movie theaters make very little money off of the films and ticket prices themselves, it used to be only from concessions. Now they have the ability to sell advertising before a film. A good portion of the time it's local commercials, so it does local businesses good as well. As for the staff, they have always been courteous and helpful whenever I'm there, but remember, humans work there with human emotions. Have you ever been snarky to someone on a bad day? Yes, sometimes things don't work, we've all been there, but if you sat through the movie, don't expect a refund, regardless of how cold you were. As a side note, if you go to any decent theater outside of Maine, you're paying at least $12 a ticket and twice as much for concessions for the same exact experience. Oh, also, the theater in Orono letting underage viewers in without a guardian is actually illegal, so your argument is invalid. This is the best place north of Augusta for movies. Hands down. Just ignore the comments from people with entitlement issues and complaints about the food prices. Remember, you don't HAVE to buy anything there if you don't agree with the prices, but that shouldn't be a valid reason not to enjoy a good night out with family or friends at a GREAT theater. Enjoy it, I have every time and I can't count how many times I've gone.
The woman at the ticket counter last night was rude. Sad to see het training someone.
The prices are ridiculous. I can get past the prices for tickets but the food is what gets me. I've been to others with reasonable costs, why couldn't they? Plus the employees are mindless and the sound messed up. Yes the commercials are tiring. They used to have more trivia etc, now its just the same ones over and over. Movie starts late and I feel dumber by the end. But what can you do? Nowhere else to go. Bad enough I already have to drive an hour to get here. Small town blues. Downfall of being a movie lover in Maine.
But when it doesn't suck and I don't get yelled at for putting my feet up, it's a good day.
There is no half-star, unfortunately. Prices, ridiculous for a poor town deep into a recession. Four dollars for a bottle of water? That's not doing business, that's theft. And I do NOT appreciate paying money to watch commercials, which other local theaters don't do. That was an incredibly bad idea from somebody. The sound is horrible, you see everyone craning their necks and turning their heads trying to figure out what's going on. My last trip, there was no heat in the theater at all, everyone was freezing, the lights weren't working but someone had the bright idea to stay open and charge full prices. When the temp dropped to about 40 degrees in the seats and we became uncomfortable enough to leave a very good (but apparently SILENT) movie, our request for a refund was not even responded to by the surly, adolescent staff. Never again. Rip somebody else off.
