Streetalk: What's the worst place to see an Oscar-nominated movie?

Kelly: South DeKalb Mall. It’s terrible. It’s all high school kids going nuts. They’re always screaming at the screen. Drinks are splattered all around me. I get popcorn thrown on my head. It’s a day out at the zoo. People there never shut up. The floors are always sticky. They bring their screaming babies and never shut up. I’d rather drive 30 miles out of the way than go to that theater, even for a crappy C-movie. It always smells like someone peed in your seat.

Jane: Regal [Cinemas Hollywood] 24. God, it is awful. They tore down a beautiful drive-in to put this damn thing in. Twenty-four movies is just confusing. You want to go watch a movie, instead you're listening to an 8-year-old translate the movie for his entire family. It’s always very crowded. It’s like parking at the mall on Christmas Eve. Instead of walking in to enjoy a movie, you feel like cattle hoping for a seat or a piece of popcorn. The experience is not enjoyable.

Nik: Atlantic Station is hell. It’s like a cancerous boil sprung out of the earth. It is horrible parking, almost like a labyrinth to find your way out of there. They trap you in there with the gates, and the [parking] cards constantly mess up. The concession stand is horrible. They don’t know the meaning of customer service. It’s a date crowd, and they also get people with families at 12:30 at night. So halfway through the movie, at a horror movie, you hear babies crying.
