Thank you Sierra Vista Cinema 16 (boooooo, hissssss) for being TOTAL jerks and changing the rules on us. In past years you have been able to save spots for others in your group because lets face it, no one is going alone, and most people work. Also previously these movies have been during the school year so the tennie boppers have not been able to line up early and we appreciated that.
WELL, instead of allowing people to rotate holding a groups spot, the Management at Sierra Vista Cinema 16 (boooo, HISSSS)decided to NUMBER your ticket as you got in line. Now I don't have a job so you would think this would be simple for me... THINK AGAIN!! I am a mother for TWO a daughter who just turned three, and my little man who is 17 months. Do I REALLY want to have my kids out there if I don't HAVE to??
SO Matt drove by the Theater at 6:00 am on his way to work and said there were not many people out waiting. I drove by at 7:00 am and did not think we needed to get there for a little while. One of our group members decided she wanted to get there early and wait in line and showed up just after I drove past. She waited in line until her replacement came at 10:00, and then went home. At 10:30 the Management let the replacements know that they would be numbering and stamping your ticket when you got in line, and then checking them every hour to make sure the people were still there. So if you missed two consecutive check ins, then you were OUT OF LUCK and at the back of the line. The girls started calling everyone and letting us know this NEW RETARDED RULE. I got toys, lunch and the kids in the car and was there by 11:00. And it was ALREADY hot let me tell you!! We had two sun shades so we were covered, but there was only a nice breeze every hour or so... I got lucky number 40...
We got into the theater around 5:00 pm and the BEST thing they had done ALL day was number the seats with tape and a stamp then you would take that number and put it on the back of your ticket and that was your seat for ALL three movies... even SWEETER!
I would SO go and see the movie again, but I will NEVER go to Sierra Vista Cinema 16 (BOOOOOO, HISSSSSSS) EVER again! I plan a permenant boycott for all the "crap" they pulled. I will be writing a few letters and making a few phone calls today regarding the "Rules" they pulled out of no where. There were breastfeeding mothers having to go back and forth all day, and even a pregnant woman out in the heat... COME ON, a little human decency is ALL we ask!! If I get a free ticket who wants it?
