Quotes

Movie Mason: When we arrive in this world, magic is all around us. You simply have to see a baby discover a butterfly or a toddler splash in the bath for the first time. Yet, as the years pass, simple pleasures aren't quite so simple to find. Myths and legends fall away. Santa's secrets are revealed. Card tricks lose their fascination. True wonder is hard to come by. But there's always... magic at the movies. Pirate ships, bicycles that fly, angels earn their wings, beautiful women marry handsome men and we...

Another urban legend
27 October 2014 | by (Buffalo, New York) – See all my reviews

Phantom Of The Megaplex takes a couple of urban legends and weaves them into a tale told for the family. All in a day's work in the life of young Taylor Handley the assistant manager of a 26 screen Megaplex movie theater. I don't think I've been to one with more than 15 screens.

When this Megaplex was built an old style movie palace was torn down and legend has it that someone was buried alive inside the wreckage and haunts the new Megaplex. The old owner of the movie palace is played by Mickey Rooney and he hangs around the new theater and is something of a character.

But on a big premiere night all kinds of things start to go wrong and Handley is the man on the job. In addition to his sleuthing and emergency management he also has to look after younger siblings Caitlin Wachs and Jacob Smith.

Who do some sleuthing of their own and find in the lower depths of the building much like the Phantom Of The Opera, a lair that Mickey Rooney has created for himself.

All in all a nice family film, not to taxing.
