Theatre blues

This theater is my favorite one in Halifax. I have gone there my entire life. I even saw Star Wars there for the first time when I was very little. So it pains me to complain, but it must be done, because no one is fixing the situation.

1) how have they not designed a more efficient way to sell tickets? Every time I go there I have to stand in line (sometimes for up to 30 minutes because the solo cashier is ringing in each person, who invariable pays with a debit/credit card. Why can't some people buy their tickets at the popcorn stand? Or have a little booth that accepts cash only? Or even install one of the machines that are at other theaters in Halifax?

Now this wouldn't be so bad, except that even though there is only one movie playing, and they can see how many people are still in line, THEY START THE MOVIE ANYWAY. I understand that the start times are trickier in the evenings, but for a matinee? that has nothing playing until hours afterward? Why couldn't they delay the film for 10 minutes while everyone gets through the snail line? Often as I finally near the front of the line, I am greeted by the manager, as I hear the movie well underway inside. It is infuriating. This is a one film, old school theater. Why can't they adjust? —film geek
