Linkrot repair: Benson & Bohl have reconfigured their web site. Photos of the Regal Cinemas in Oceanside are now here.

I always enjoy going here. The clientele (Marines from Camp Pendleton) are a big draw, I’ll admit.

A recent visit did disappoint me. They’ve instituted a policy of assigned seating, which I absolutely HATE! Part of the charm of going to the movies has always been that you can sit wherever you want, and if someone plops down in front of you, you are free to move. If you have to pick your assigned seat from a chart, there’s no telling in whose company you’ll end up. Also, when I visited, one of the theaters seemed to have water damage, as it smelled moldy and some of the aisles were roped off. Soap dispensers in the restroom were empty of soap — are they ever checked? The water fountains had broken handles and only a trickle of water came out of the one that was actually still working. Regal Oceanside is not the ghetto theater some reviewers claim — it is basically clean and in good working order — but it does seem to be going downhill and needs attention before it gets worse.

Visited again a few days ago. Despite multiple complaints from patrons, they still have the assigned seating policy. A total waste in a theater whose auditoriums are never full. And they send someone around to check to see that everyone is in their assigned seats. Hey, where are we, study hall in high school? In my previous comment I mentioned that the drinking fountains were out of order, and that only one gave out just a trickle of water. On this visit none of them worked at all! In the auditorium where my film was showing, the work lights were left on well into the start of the program — I had to go out and ask someone to turn them off. I would have done it myself but the switch is one of those key-activated switches and nothing I had in my pocket would fit. The only good news is that the water damage and moldy smell seem to have been taken care of.
