I thoroughly agree, the prices keeps going up but the service keeps going down. Yes the theater was nice when it first opened back in 1994 but nothing has been changed since 1994 considering it is 2009 now. The price of tickets are $9.50 now and manatee's are $8.50 which the time used to be 6pm by they lowered to 4pm and then to 2Pm and weekends, forget any discount on the weekends too as they want everybody to pay full price. Wow! Talk about a total rip-off!

They raise and raise the price but they haven't updated anything in the place. Whats the point to raise they're prices if they haven't changed anything. It seems their customer service has gotten worse and worse. I agree, they like people talk on cell phones, feet on the chairs, allow people to talk during the movies and they allow staff to due their homework on the ticket counter table. What kind of place is that?

I hate the SLO downtown theater or the movieexperience simply because it is too experience. [continued below]....

..... What experience is it? Come up guys, fix the place up, do something with those outrageous ticket fees or lower the price. For the price what I pay, I can buy movie tickets on EBay for $4.00 to $3.00 at about a dozen tickets for Arroyo Grande Regal theater. Yes they are a rip-off too but at least they have a membership option and discounts and better seating, real theater ushers who check the theaters for cell phones, talking, feet on chairs and more. The SLO downtown movieexperience doesn't do any of that. They are just awful!

AUTHOR: - ()

I want to make an apology for making this report as if I could remove it I would, I am not a fan of ripoff report as they don’t allow authors to remove or delete or alter reports. No one is perfect as when wrote this report I was upset and now time has passed I had a change of heart and that I want to say I am sorry for writing it. I love the downtown theater and the Fremont theater.

Themovieexperience raised their price again at the Fremont theater, Mission Cinemas? and Downtown Centre Cinema 7 Theatre and again folks

AUTHOR: J - (U.S.A.)

Hey they did it again Themovieexperience raised the price again and again folks. The Fremont Theater, the Mission Cinemas and Downtown Centre 7 Cinema in San Luis Obispo is now $11.50, that's right a $11.50 per ticket, not exceptions. That's what they charge.

Think they care, not a darn.


And they even raised the price for 3D tickets to $13.50 too, wow, even if you bring your own glasses they still charge the same rip-off price. Amazing they continue to raise the price and rip people off. It is sad as they have not done a darn thing to make it affordable either.

Economy remains in recession and raises the prices faster than bean stock.


It is a shame that the Fremont Theater has horrible owners and the same with the Downtown

Theater Mission Cinemas? Downtown Theatre in San Luis Obispo.


The upgrade is never going to happen but continue to raise raise and raise their prices again and again.


Will remain a ripoff for San Luis Obispo residents till people stop going as the attendance has not been great either.

Hey we go again The Movieexperience has done it again, raised their prices from $9.50 to $10.50. Went their on Sunday even and they wanted $10.50, place was completely empty. It sucked and the place was nothing but crap. The screen was all dirty, gum on the screens, spit and stinky chairs. Sound sounded like crap too.

The manager also would not allow buying bulk tickets to use separate times, if you buy 25 tickets, they want you to use them in one show only. What a crappy idea. When I go to the Regal or Palm theater, they give you a big discount if you big in bulk and you can watch any movie whenever you like.

The San Luis Obispo Downtown Theater just sucks and I hate going there.

Place is still dirt and a ripoff! Still find reasons to raise the price but to upgrade

AUTHOR: J - (U.S.A.)

This movie theater sucks completely, it has never been upgraded since it was built in 1994 and as much as all they do is raise their prices, they never update or upgrade anything, the place is totally dirty and the staff are rude and sit on their butts doing nothing most of the time. Not worth it at all.

SLO downtown theater is not well kept up and pricy

AUTHOR: J - (U.S.A.)

I think this theater is really dirty and pricy in my opinion. The bathrooms should get my attention and the seats in the theaters too and make the screen bigger. They seem rather small and not cleaned as gum is on them.
