Larry Miller adds butter to his popcorn. He said he enjoyed getting free refills of popcorn and soda at Park Place on Thursday. Miller, who visits the theater twice a month, said he would tell others about the new all-you-can-eat system at the downtown Charleston theater.
Larry Miller, 27, fills his popcorn bag for the second time before his movie started Thursday at Park Place Stadium Cinemas downtown. The Charleston theater introduced its all-you-can-eat popcorn and all-you-can-drink Pepsi, ICEE slushies and tea products.
Park Place Stadium Cinemas customers can get a free refill on any Pepsi product, ICEE slushie, or tea after they purchase a small for $3.25 or a large for $3.75. Greg Pauley, vice president of the theater, said it was time for a change and the new system should attract new customers.
Park Place Manager Michael Tawney said each self-dispensing unit can hold nearly 90 gallons of popcorn at one time. He said customers are already excited about the new free refill system.
