I really liked the guy who ran the Reel.He tried to have a real family-friendly place with great prices on the concessions.How sad that bad things happen to good people.

Per the January 2006 issue of “In Focus” magazine, this theater (along with Gateway Cinemas, Spanish Fork Movieplex and Showcase Cinemas) has been acquired by “A new theatrical circuit dubbed Red Carpet Cinemas.”

Yesterday on July 8th 2006, me and my family (4 of us) went to check show times for Pirates and noted that the show we wanted to see started at 5pm. We went back the next day only to find out that they had changed the show times from 5 to 7 pm. The manager said that the new show times were posted the previous night, however when we were leaving there was a person out side changing the show times for pirates. She also said that changing show times happens a lot. The manager bold faced lied to us about both issues. We know for a fact since we have been patrons of 5 Star in Magna for many years that show times have not been changed at all. We do not appreciate this type of behavior and hope some one does something about it! We feel betrayed and disheartened! The manager bold faced lied to us and we are very upset and angry!!! Something should be done about this horrific treatment!

okay foxinsox10, shame on you, so what if you get told that the times change, have you ever thought of calling in advance or checking the voice mail on showtimes. no need to get but hurt. i worked there from september 2006-november 2007. show times did change alot, so he was telling you the truth. dennis lunt rarely lies. have you ever considered the person changing the times doesn’t know whats going on and you caught them off guard. the only bad thing about working there was that janet was a crook, stole from employees checks. and was sexist.
