Happens every weekend. This type problem is the exact reason Jackson has NO MOVIE THEATERS. The problem starts with the hanging in the parking lot, then fights, then shots, then closure of the theaters. For over a year now I have watched the people working the Clinton theater let friends and groups of teens into the movies without paying and they are loud and rowdy inside the movie, most using phones and loud talking which makes it hard for patrons who come to the movies to watch the movie. I figure by this time next year we will have NO Theater to go to because of the South Jackson crowds coming here to hang and cause trouble. WAKE UP CLINTON or this city will start downward like Jackson..!!!!!

I agree, My family members attended a movie and that will be the last. The manager is scared at night and can not and will not remove any of these uncontrollable punks out of the theater. I did get free tickets once I complained but we will not be back ever. It is sad that the cinema won't hire security/ushers to stay in the theater while a movie is playing to keep loud mouth thugs off their cell phones and calm in order to protect the peace of other patrons. You can't go anywhere now without hip hop thugs who think they are above the law disturbing the rights of others.
