I love the Premiere Theatre! I love the reasonable prices on tickets and on concessions...and I love the memories of the place...I've been going to the movies there my whole life. Thanks for keeping the place open!
The Sticky Six set the gold standard in fine cinematic engineering.
I agree Tammy; even people like me (who are FAR too young to claim that they have memories of “The Sticky Six” as old as the theatre itself) enjoy the times we’ve had at Premiere Six in the ‘Boro. In my opinion, it’s really good to see that Mr. Brooks is still hanging in there, especially when the larger cinemas like Carmike over off of Cason Lane seem to be monopolizing the market at times. To be honest though, I’m kind of surprised that he HAS lasted this long, now that I have the chance to read about the lack of credit card machines and the now-recent addition of digital projection at the Premiere Six.
What I probably find to be the most encouraging part of this post though is Brooks’ quote in the fifth from last paragraph, where he talks about “being a benefit to the community;” I guess that must be the reason why Premiere Six has lasted so long in the end really; the owner is not just here to greedily make a ton of money for himself, but also to help benefit the community, and help keep the “spirit of the movies” alive for as long as possible by keeping Premiere Six “old school” for as long as he has. That is just classy right there (too bad more people can’t be willing to focus on their contribution to society, eh?).
Anyway, I wish Mr. Brooks the best of luck during these hard economic times, and hope that we can all help him to stay afloat by going to Premiere Six and enjoying films in a classic environment.
If they're going digital, it would be nice to pay with a debit or credit card. Even Ashley Schaeffer knows that.
