The May 22 article, “Burbank theaters are a big draw,” says Burbank cinemas are a big draw. Not for me.
Loud music in the halls, sitting through advertising before the movie starts and a long stream of trailers. When I went to see “Conspirator” on April 15, the show was nearly 15 minutes late in starting. I know, you save money at the early shows. You get what you pay for.
I much prefer the Pacific Theaters at the Americana at Brand. Developer Rick Caruso has some class.
