What did you like about your Santikos experience?

We love the Santikos theaters... especially the Bijou and the remodeled Embassy Theaters. Seats are comfortable both places.
However, the evening of Jan. 21 was frustrating. We arrived at the Embassy 45 minutes in advance of the scheduled movie time (HIDDEN FIGURES) only to find the show was in a small theater and 2 seats together were sold out. WHY were the show times limited & even put in a small theater?!! So we drove 20 minutes over to the Bijou knowing we have a 1+ hour wait. We thought we'd look at the menu and possibly order something... discovered that all the menus were in the theaters and there were NO menus available in the lobby! I inquired from the young woman at the snack bar as to what the goat cheese came with. She said Chips. Well how much is it? $15.00! Too high for me especially since drinks are $5.00. Once inside the theater, we discovered the goat cheese was not only $7.99 but also was served over vegetables! Now we probably would have paid that for it. Obviously the young lady at the snack bar wasn't familiar with the menu, the offerings or the pricing. Glad I didn't take a chance and order... who knows what I would have gotten! While waiting I asked the ticket taker if there was a way to buy tickets on-line and he responded that he guessed so...but never once did he offer to help me access that correct website or show me how to do so! When the movie was over at 12:45 a.m. there was NO theater employee anywhere in sight! Several years ago I called in a complaint about the lack of visible staff at closing time and was told that they would always have someone available. Obviously that policy is not being followed. So even though we love Santikos and will continue to patronize Santikos, the recent experience was lacking.... lacking in availability of popular & worthwhile shows, lack in availability of theaters to accommodate patrons, inadequately trained staff, lack of availability of menus for those waiting for the show, etc. The Bijou needs improvement.

What did you like about your Santikos experience?

The staff is very friendly & the service was very good. I am glad to hear that the theater is going to get an updated look. It's long over due. I am looking forward to the new 2017 Bijou Cinema Bistro. I would also like to say that the email for feedback is great. The people finally have a voice. Thanks Charlie.

What did you like about your Santikos experience?

The manager and personnel of Santikos Bijou Cinema Bistro went above and beyond after we'd lost a wallet in one of the theaters. So, we not only got to see an amazing art film (Fences, with Denzel Washington) but got to experience a top level of service from Santikos!

What did you like about your Santikos experience?

It plays movies that are not in the mainstream theaters so I can see indie movies or Hollywood movies that are not mass market. The food is also good, although a bit pricey.
