if I am not mistaken the world’s most famous skyscraper the Empire State Building took precisely 19 months to be built. the escalator at this theater has been out of service since Oct. 2018. given the Empire State Building info what possible reason could the management of this theater give that would excuse the escalator being out of service for 4 ½ years???
Not enough palms greased????
I would love to know why the escalator was out of service
for almost 4 ½ years??? what reason could the management
of this theater give that would be at all credible???
My guess is the cost to repair it is so high that they keep kicking the can down the road. If there is an alternate route that satisfies ADA requirements, it may be a long time unless the city leans on them.
If I can make an off the wall suggestion…
Go to the theatre and try to find out what the problem was?
Can’t be good for ones mental and physical health obsessing over something for 4 ½ years.
according to mOOse1111’s most recent post theaters should be allowed to have their escalators out of service for 4 ½ years. apparently that’s good customer relations.
Big Joe, you used to be so humble, it looks like you finally grew a pair…
actually it’s m00se1111 please and I’m disappointed how my resolution was twisted around so.
I didn’t condone the issue with the escalator.
I merely suggested that as a consumer, if I had an issue with a business - I’d go to that business and ask someone in charge what the problem was. Not come to some online forum and stew over something for what was it 4 ½ years if going back over the history of this page is any indication.
However if that’s how you’ve chosen to interpret my suggestion, then you go right ahead and have a lovely day.
since you asked per se. everytime I went to the Cinema ½/3 I did in fact ask the highest up managerial staff member I could find about the escalator and no one was ever able to give me a straight answer.
