Here's a note/rant about some other reviews...The people whining about parking (esp. the person who complained about being towed) seem to not know how to read clearly marked signs. As in, if the sign says 1 hour parking, 9-5, don't park there at 2PM and sit through a movie because you can be towed. If the sign says "X Restaurant Parking only, violators will be towed, you probably shouldn't park there and watch a movie. There is a small parking lot across the street and plenty of street parking after 5. There is also a huge parking garage right around the corner that is a 2 minute walk away...it is free some days and a $2-3 for 2-3 hours on days you have to pay. There is also parking 5 minutes (walking) away that never seems to be full and is free/2hour parking during the week. Complaining about having your car towed is absolutely stupid because you parked it somewhere you weren't supposed to. I've been to this theater probably 10-15 times and I never have an issue finding parking assuming I am willing to walk ~5 minutes. If you do not know where to find parking spots, you can park your car somewhere temporary and ask the people inside, they are more than willing to help. That being said, this is a very nice (albeit small) theater that services mainly Purdue students and locals living on or just off campus. The staff is very friendly and nice and the theaters themselves, while small, are almost always very clean. This review only gets 4 stars because there are far too many rude and noisy students. A majority of students are respectful but there have almost always been a small group at any showing I have been to that refuse to shut up and are incredibly bothersome. I am saying this as a fellow student myself, so I am in no way inherently biased against young people or college students...it's just an observation I have made nearly every time I've been here.
We like going here. Parking lot smallish but parking on the street after 5. Staff is great. Popcorn/drinks great. Seats are always comfortable and never have problems getting tickets. Nice they have bball game and foozball for the kids. Don't EVER order the pretzels or hot dogs. In ANY of the goodrich theaters. Trust me. Lots of things you can walk to before/after also which is cool. Nice vibe with Purdue students around. I would say out of the 3 in West/Lafayette this is a little better.
The Wabash Landing theater shows (mostly) mainstream movies, and provides mediocre video quality. It currently has 2k digital projectors which are more often than not somewhat out of focus or show chromatic aberration. Also, I feel like they may reduce the bulb brightness somewhat (though I'm not sure of that). The sound is OK and the staff are friendly. Unfortunately the patrons are rude. In nearly every viewing I've had, the other customers often send text messages and use their cell phones during the show. If you are going to ENJOY a movie, I suggest elsewhere.
It was very Wabash Landing 9ish. Popcorn was stale. Drinks were great. Women were handsome. Men were beautiful.
Extremely conducive to smuggling in food.
