I LOVE THIS THEATER. I don't even live in San Diego and I'm down to make the trip up to Camera 12. They layout is funky, I like how they have 3 floors and a lot of different sized theaters. The seats are so comfy, and it feels really clean. I recommend this place!. :D
Best kept movie secret in town!.
I shouldn't even be writing this review, because if too many people discover this theater then the dream will end.
This is a place where you can get a good price for a ticket to the premiere of a blockbuster movie without waiting in line or dealing with a packed theater. It is, in effect, the secret theater in the basement of Hazard Center Shopping Mall.
I'm writing this because I hope they skate the fine line between profitability and popularity. I don't want them to go out of business, but I do want them to remain so extraordinarily accessible! There are none of the frustrations of the multiplexes, but all of the first-run movies and technical accouterments you'd expect if you went to Mission Valley Mall, for example.
With lack-of-fame comes lackluster amenities. The snack bar is limited and the theater in general is a little run down and dirty. But this is a small price to pay to get a great seat for a new movie 10 minutes after the show started.
With tongue firmly in cheek, please don't tell a lot of people that this is the place you go when you want to see the movie but are pretty sure the theaters will all be packed.
But please tell enough people to keep them in business!
PS- They have some great specials too, especially for parents and kids. Definitely worth checking out.
