Drink that I ordered was $12.95 and was horrible, the room showing the movie had a horrible smell, almost like urine. Way too expensive for a place that is not clean and smells rotten. Trash on the floors was everywhere. The good side is that the seats are comfortable and the sound system was excellent.

Went here last night with 11 others. We went to be able to have drinks. Some got their order and others did not, even though the server had the whole movie in which to serve it. The theatre is dirty and clearly shows a lack of concern. Check out the other recent reviews and you will see what we are... More

Going into this review, I ask you to take into consideration that this is only one experience of many that went well. My fiance and I decided to attend the Arena Grand Theater for dinner and a show, instead of the Short North Gallery Hop due to inclement weather. In all honesty I think we would have been better off... More

We had gone to this theatre several years ago and visited again today and it really felt like it was falling apart. Our showing was early, but I had thought there was one movie that started before ours. When we arrived about 20 minutes before the start time, the doors were all locked and no one was in sight inside.... More

I had a real problem getting to my tickets after I bought them on line. Then was unable to access them myself at the theatre. 5 of us visited on Sunday afternoon (12:30). Theatre was a little less than half full. No one took our food order until 5 min. before the show...during the previews. Food was delivered 35 minutes... More

This place has been here a while, so we finally got around to stopping in, and are glad we did. Ticket prices are a little less than AMC. Great facility! Beer and alcohol available, and the food is not half bad. Fairly priced for this type of venue. The bonus for us was that it doesn't seem to be over... More

My Dad had a Groupon for movie tickets to use at the Arena Grand, so we journeyed all the way from Dublin to see the Avenger's here. The staff were extremely friendly, helping us out when the Groupon my Dad had purchased didn't work properly. The staff who were serving during the movie were great, too. The seats inside the...

We were attending a promotional movie - one not in wide release, and that someone had to organize an event around and market it themselves. I recognize this is not their normal movie, but the people at the ticket window and the manger seemed to not really know what was going on. They couldn't let us in... then they could... More

This was my first time going to a movie here. We got there and had no issues with any lines. Chose seats and went right in. Seats are very comfortable. Good picture and great sound.

I purchased a groupon for this place and let it expire. It was 5.00 for a movie ticket or in the event you didn't use by the date it was the amount I paid in goods or services. I moved from the area but decided to drive 40 minutes for an anniversary to do dinner at Ted's and then use... More
