User reviews on Varsity Theatre - Ashland

    First of all, why aren't these reviews dated?! One of them mentions The King's Speech -- which came out in 2010! I'm writing in January 2015, and I can't understand why so many of these reviews are so negative. Maybe the reviewers are just grumpy. I've seen four films at Varsity, in three weeks, and have not been dissatisfied yet. Sure, the seats aren't the most luxurious, and the theaters are on the small side. But, hello: welcome to the art house cinema. The reviewer that complained about the concessions must not have tried the decadently delicious homemade chocolate I had. Give Varsity a try: the films there cost about half what I'm used to paying in New York -- and the Varsity, in my opinion, is well worth the price of admission.

    This movie theater rocks! So it is a little quaint. Not everyone wants to blasted out of their seats by the volume of the speakers. Where else in the valley can you see great films? So the theater has a few querks it still rocks!

    My son and I were going to see "All is Lost" and the computer says 3:15 as first showing but on the phone it stated 12:40. We went and nobody came until 3:00pm. My son checked your website and it also said 12:40. Actually all the films only stated the second showings but once again on the phone they did all have earlier showings. There were seven people waiting like we were and were very disappointed. This theater is run by inept children. It has the lowest ratings except for White City. This is not the first time this has happened. You people need to correct this issue.

    When they renovated the theaters, they chose the cheapest and most uncomfortable seating available. The toilet in the men's bathroom in the back theater has been broken on and off for 4-5 years. Instead of replacing it, they have tinkered with it and I have used it on literally dozens of occasions when it was running when I walked in. They have wasted tens of thousands of gallons of water over those years.

    This is Ashland. The theater could very easily carry some quality candies, non GMO popcorn or do something nice that the town supports but they have chosen to use the lowest common dominator. The screens in two of the theaters have been repaired and it's obvious.

    These days we usually just go to Tinseltown because the theaters there are so much nicer. It's too bad that John has decided to run such a cheap operation. I don't think he realizes how much business he loses to Medford because of it or he just doesn't care.

    This theatre is so badly run it will remind you of college movie nights. Remember sitting in the audience and yelling out that the sound was bad, or the movie was frozen, or the movie hadn't even started? That's what this place is like. It's run by kids. No adult supervision. The problem with this is that the kids have no idea how to prioritize. If their manager (who is also a kid) told them to make popcorn, that's what they will do and that's all they will do, even if the movie hasn't started and it's 15 minutes late, even if the line to buy tickets is down the street, even if somebody spilled a drink all over the lobby, etc. In addition, the sound is usually bad, the screen is patched, the bathrooms are dirty, and the prices are high considering what you are getting for your money. The brewers yeast for the popcorn is good though (and free!)

    This is a small-town theater. No, it's not perfect. But it's a nice, comfortable place to see a movie. Going to the Varsity is a hometown experience. You can wander in at the last minute without worrying about whether you'll get a seat. You see people you know and have a friendly chat. And you can generally find higher-quality movies that aren't at places like Tinseltown. The Varsity makes living in Ashland a little nicer. Its character is perfect for our town, and my family is very glad we have it.

    The idea of vintage at the Varisty theater is a nice concept, but sucks in reality. Recently saw Albert Nobbs there in the back alley theater, which had filthy, sticky floors and uncomfortable, claustrophobic seating, but the worst part was all the crashing and booming audio that was leaking in from the theater room next door. Totally ruined the viewing experience for me. They were making us watch commercials (which is bad enough considering the price of admission) without audio. The manager explained they were "upgrading" the sound system, but I'd heard that excuse the last time I was there (about a year ago).

    Wow! A movie theater for intelligent adults. No blaring commercials beating you over the head while you wait for the movie to start. Also the sound level doesn't blast you out of your seat. This is the way theaters used to be instead of the ones that now cater to corporate greed and confuse mind numbing noise with quality pictures. Way to go Varsity Theater. We'll be back for more movies.

    I went to see King's Speech, great movie. I was disappointed with the quality of the theatre. It's not always like this. The lights were left on after the movie started, I had to go ask someone after the movie was playing to come and turn them off, it made the viewing unpleasant with the glaring lights. Then the volume was way too low, couldn't eat popcorn and hear the movie, had to really focus to hear. And then I was sitting around 4 to 5 rows from the back, and the sound of another movie was audible throughout the movie, it made the listening difficult and again had to focus. I wish to ask for a credit or free pass for myself and my partner to see another film.

    Recently saw a film here and a portion of the image was cut off. We complained and were told it was a film gate adjustment issue and that the equipment was so old that it was just too risky to attempt adjustment - not that the employees working there would know how to do it anyway. But this sort of thing has happened there before and I don't think I'll be back. If I'm paying to see an Oscar nominated film I expect better than this.
