I had never been there before my groupon, but I've been there twice since then! I had a great time for both the regular movies as well as the sing-a-long

Great programs, looking forward to your other shows like sing-alongs. Hope to see more of your events on Groupon! I would definitely want to attend more of your shows. Also, on the Feb. 10th showing of Becoming Britney, there were some sound issues that made it difficult for audiences to understand clearly what the actors and actresses were saying. Of course, some of the sound issues were clearly faulty, but for some of the songs that had more background music, the melody line with the lyrics usually got lost within the background music and became difficult for audiences to hear and understand.

I like the pre movie trivia.

I don't think I redeemed a groupon for The Retro Dome. I've only been once, and it was my girlfriend's idea.

We greatly prefer the movies to the live shows. We wish there was a way to request which movies will be shown. Trivia before shows is fun, but we sit up in the back and have never been chosen to answer a question (despite attending many movies). We wish when you did sing-along movies (like Moulin Rouge and Muppet Movie) that you would also provide a time when there was no sing-along (just movie watching). We would have attended both of those movies if there was a no-sing-along option.

We love the comfortable down-home ambiance & easy-access to the Retro Dome Perhaps some advice: you need to get the word out more about your talent and your venue. Many people I talk to don't even know about you. Thanks for the good times!

From Our Editors

When The Retro Dome first opened its doors three years ago, it was with the knowledge that its life would be brief and yet explosive. From the start, the owners of the building planned to demolish it at some point in the future. Yet that didn’t stop the staff from making use of the former Century 25 Theater’s stadium-style seating, refurbished chairs, and massive dome. They decked out the interior with vintage, retro-modern décor, complete with a candy counter slinging Pop Rocks and JujuBees. The foreseeable, yet fuzzy ending has recently come into sharp focus, though. The Retro Dome will go dark on January 31, 2013, bringing to an end nearly four years of live music and sing-along cinema.
