I bought a ticket for a film a few months ago, only to be stopped by the manager. He told me I was not allowed in the theater and when I asked why he wouldn't tell me. I had not been to a movie since 2014 and the last time I was there I didn't cause any disturbances (nor have I ever) or break any rules, such as sneaking into a movie without paying for it (I have seen people do this in the past). The tickets are overpriced and so is the food; it takes a VERY LONG TIME TO GET THE FOOD - a friend of mine told me he was once going to buy poutine for a movie but twenty minutes later the person ahead of him was still being served; he ended up not buying anything since his movie would start soon. I did challenge the manager when he told me I wasn't welcome; his response was "there were complaints" and when I asked from who he would not disclose that information to me - once again I had not been to the theatre since 2014 and that experience was good, so there must be some mistake. I decided not to pursue it since I don't need the aggravation and it's not much of a loss on my part - I will be saving money and not having to deal with seat-kickers or people who won't be quiet during the movie. I can just wait until the movie is available for rent on TV for only $5.99 - which is cheaper than paying $15.99 at the theatre, not including the cost of food! If Scotiabank Theatres wants to lose their customers, they are doing the right thing. If they want to keep their customers, they need to change some of the issues (such as wait time for food, prices, and the way they treat customers)!

Food good but way overpriced. Seating good if you get there early. Sound too loud for certain movies

Waaaaay to slow
August 08, 2016
Went to Scotiabank Theatre in St. John's last night. The line up to get tickets was a bit long so I told my husband I would get into the line up for concessions and wait for him. Well it was a good thing I did..... He got the tickets and joined me in the line up and we waited 45 minutes. All the lineups were slow not just ours. In fact there were some ladies who sat behind us in the movie and they missed 15 minutes of the movie (not the trailers the actual movie) and I saw them only a few places behind us in the line. You have made things waaaaay to complicated. Popcorn, wings, pizza, pulled pork sandwiches and on and on. What happened to going to a movie and getting popcorn and a drink? Not all lines were open. Even if you added one more person to help get drinks or popcorn for the each of the cashiers or something. No one seemed to care.

Ticket Kiosk are NEVER Open when i go to buy my ticket! I would like to purchase my ticket at the counter not the self serve machine especially when the movie is IMAX, because everyone wants me to purchase there tickets so the seats are together! I am not a ATM hahaha! Any love and enjoy the movies once a week! But i will never get the 2 hours back i wasted on 10 Cloverfield Lane (Worst Movie of My Lifetime) But that is Not Your Fault Hahaha! Picture and Sounds are *Perfect* Thank you!!

1/2 hr to just try and buy a ticket is too long. No time to stand in line to buy concessions!!!! How can I rate concessions if I don't have time to buy them

Part of the movie experience that we enjoy is the pre-show. Unfortunately, on 15/06/15 my husband and I arrived to watch the show but there was no picture - just audio. Very disappointing, especially with the high prices charged for movies. Otherwise, the movie experience itself was good - both picture and audio!
Movie Night no more

Movie night was always a fun outing to look forward to. Not anymore, sadly. The Scotiabank Theatre Avalon Mall is freezing cold.. audio is deafening.. prices are outrageous!! Not worth it anymore. Now it's purchase a movie online for good fee and eat movie snacks in comfort.
Distracted by iPad
May 01, 2015
While attending the 4:30 showing of Avengers: Age of Ultron Imax I have to say my experience was very disappointing. Throughout the entire movie I had an individual in the row directly in front of me (Row F) using their iPad and it was extremely distracting. For the entire duration of the movie I was not able to see a movie employee and express my disgust with this individual. Not sure why they were attending a movie if they were only interested in playing with their iPad. I had to hold my hand up to the side of my face to stop being distracted by the light from the iPad. Very disappointing trip to an IMAX theater. With the cost for my family to attend a night out at the movies one should not have to be concerned about the rude actions of others. Money wasted........

Popcorn could be fresher, and area around the condiment bar could be cleaner and well stocked.
