Am I the only one annoyed with AFM Fitaş Theatre?

Well, I would like to stop by AFM’s İstiklal Street branch and watch one of the newly released movies. This theatre reminds me the grand theatres I went in Houston and i like this real sense of watching a film it gives to me… However,
a) There are four cashiers and only one is for credit cards. So sometimes there is a huge queue in that single cashier and if you are a little bit late, while you are waiting in that long line, tickets run out.
b) if you are a bit late, nothing you lose if get the ticket. Because the actual movie starts to be shown after nearly 40 minutes! . This happened twice but the average waiting period is not less than 20 minutes anyway. I am not an anti-capitalist guy at all and I can understand the value of ads, but isn’t a bit long?
c) Some of the restrooms are filthy and smelly, theatres themselves might be quiet dirty…
b) If you are frustrated in one way or another, then you cannot find any official to listen to your complaints. Go and fill in the form in the website…

I will probably go and see other movies there but only until I find a real substitute:)

    you could try one of those expensive theaters in Akmerkez or Cevahir.. I am sure they are pretty clean … they cost a lot though..

    nevertheless, can’t do nothing about the ad things…. theaters have to stand on their feet…

    in berlin the ads take about 20 minutes..

    just to compare…

    a few months ago i didn’t like a movie there (the brothers grimm, it was awful), so i complained to the ticket booth after an hour and they swapped my tickets for something else. that’s good service.

    It’s so good to see other people annoyed by the AFM Theater. Just very recently, during the AFM Independent Film Fest, I was complaining to a friend about this. And what is with the interior design of the entrance, the dark colors of the walls? It’s so depressing, you almost lose your will to watch a movie.
