I solved the problem of the owner being rude very easily...I started going to the drive-in in Calvert city. 2 movies for 5 bucks per person, children under 13 are free. Snacks and drinks are cheaper there too. Including gas, I spend the same at the drivein that I do at the princess but I get two movies instead of one!

FYI.. Cell phone do not mess up the projectors. nor the airlines equipment. Get facts before post. Airlines just use it as a ploy to discourage seating Voice rage on those who have to hear others jabber. Had to laugh when I saw it messes up the Projector. so funny.

Who is worse? The theater guy or the guy that runs Circus skate. Have not been there in years, he may be dead by now.

Just follow the his rules or drive to Paducah/Murray. It's real simple! I don't see a problem with it. If I need to use my phone, I will just step outside. It's not like the Cinema is a large building. LOL

No the Circus Skate guy is much worse than Mr. Cinema!!! I recently seen him yell at another Mom for not having her money out and ready. LOL, He definitely needs anxiety medication!!! He can't handle the stress of crowds.

Well, the owner went crazy and cussed out my wife when she was reading on her I-pad twenty minutes before the movie started. He wasn't polite or professional at all. He just came up behind us and was rude. After the show she tried to reason with him he slammed his cane on the floor, used the "f" word five or six times in a row, called us white trash, and then told her don't ever come back. Needless to say the man needs help and he won't ever be getting our business again.

"His business, his rule" If you look at the Princess Theater webpage, the house rules don't say anything about no I-pads, in fact it only says that cell phones must be turned off or silenced. There are no signs that say "no-technology." Reading a book on an I-pad never hurt anybody, especially 20 minutes before the show. This guy is a complete lunatic. I understand that he gets a lot of disrespectful teenagers, but me and my wife are in our 30's. All it would have taken was a simple "Miss, I don't allow any technology in my theater," instead of cussing us out, calling us names, and throwing us out.

Oh and he'd better be careful with that cane, he might have an accident and trip over it!

Why does anyone go there in the first place? Paducah and Murray has cleaner theaters, Dolby Digital projection and surround sound. I get a better movie-watching experience in my man cave over that dump.

Agreed! I go because I live in Mayfield and its easy, but the seats are terrible and the crowds are usually teenagers or parents with their kids during the day. The younger staff has always been nice to me, but the old man who is the owner is a complete jerk! I saw him jump a kid that had a cell phone in the lobby once, and he wasn't doing anything!

You'll all be crying when he has to close the theater because the studios have all gone digital and they aren't helping out the Mom & Pop theaters to change to digital projectors that run $50,000 to $70,000 a piece and the big chains can charge what they want in tickets and concessions.
Yes, you sometimes see the worst of the business owners but it takes a special kind of person to keep a theater running these days with problems most of us can't understand.
Cell Phones in the theater (PLEASE)...most of us don't want to hear the one sided yammerings about your pathetic life. Turn em' off, period.

You're right there are ALWAYS two sides of the story, I am the owners daughter-in-law. There is the rule for NO CELL PHONES at all because it mess' up the projectors. Believe it or not. The workers are NOT insane they are ALL outstand students who do sports at school and are amazing at school! They bust their asses doing their best and people get rude with them and they have NO control over what the owner does. He is a man who is set in his ways. He has ran plenty of theatre's and doesn't get enough resepct. He tries to play family movies and make things the best for his customers. Until you have walked in his shoes don't judge. Now moving on to the 3-D just because the poster says 3-D doesn't mean it is! The screen AND projector for that would cost around 190 thousand dollars. What people don't realize is they are still using 35 mm film with projectors that are nearly as old as my husband. So sometimes it s hard to get them focused. He has rule for reason and he wants everyone one to enjoy their time there. He is the lowest around because he understands that times are hard. So everyone has their own thoughts regrading the place but just remember don't always believe everything you hear!And I can tell you all this because for 2 years I ran it for the owner while he was at the drive in he had.
well i was with you until you said they (the employees) were into sports by that they must be crazy sports people are bullies

Things have really changed from what I saw! Glad to have a place for the kids to go and see a good movie here in good ole Mayfield! Kudos to whoever is running the theater now! It's wonderful.
