Drove an hour to see a movie here and was refunded my money and turned away because there were not enough customers. Perhaps they should advertise this fact on any of their web pages instead of just inconveniencing people when they cant afford to operate....More

The best thing in Barstow, really friendly owner/ticket man. Really clear audio via car radio. Plenty of room, relaxed cheap and an experience very hard to find. Two films for $ 8 an absolute bargain, go to make sure this continues.
