    Didn’t go to any of the films last year as they were all at Liberty. That is not a safe area. My friends and family won’t be going again this year if a safer theatre isn’t used. Sad because we bought tons of tickets in years past. Oh well.

  2. Not Surprised says:

    That can be said for many areas. I Have been to The Liberty theatre many times and never seen or had any problems. In fact have been to many very night night showings and have always felt safe.

    sorry that should have read *very late night showings…

    @Concerned — thank you for your feedback, it is appreciated. The majority of the films will be screened at Liberty again this year, mainly due to our budget constraints as we rely 100% on corporate sponsors and private patrons for funding but also because we really like the venue. We had no reported safety issues last year. This year we will also have some special screenings at BUEI so watch this space for news on those.
