Regal Simpsonville Stadium 14 and IMAX

I took my wife to the only Baskin-Robbins within a hundred miles of our house. It was her birthday and, as a child, she always used to get a Mudpie from them. Since we were out of town anyway, we stopped by their local theater which happened to be IMAX!

They had the usual assortment of lobby standees.

I loved this sign on the way in to Godzilla. It made me laugh. At least personnel should be able to get inside earlier to clean.

I asked how long they had been open and they said four years. I was curious because their bathrooms were spotless and gleaming. The IMAX theater had a very nice screen and sound system but it would be hard to justify it as a regular expense as a matinee ticket was $17.50.

They have a handful of arcade machines shoehorned into a small alcove (I almost didn’t spot it). The usual assortment of Regal snacks were available. I tried the pretzel bites with cheese (the cheese was fine but the bites were microwaved with predictable results). They had some funnel cake fries that I missed out on trying.

I can see this theater being described as a hidden gem as it is located in the middle of nowhere. It looks like they purchased a large plot of land, mowed it under, and plopped down a huge movie complex. There is a shopping center down the road but nothing in the immediate vicinity. There was almost no signage visible along the way either.
