6 thoughts on “Compton residents remain in the dark over the city’s finances

  1. speak for your self maybe you cant afford the movies but citizens in Compton goes to other cities and spend a lot of money to watch a movie else where. i hope they make it happen we need it.Compton residence not as poor are your saying.

  2. You just asked the same question that citizens have been asking for the past 3 years. Where is the money going? They claim they are being transparent, but it is obvious they are not. Too many deals being made behind closed doors. Kinda like tonight’s public hearing about the movie complex. On the agenda there was no mention of any theater company who operates theater complexes, but they gave a presentation about how wonderful their 14 screen complexes are. Families in Compton can’t afford to go the movies. How do they expect to fill 14 theaters? Are there even 14 movies worth watching at any given time? These families can’t even afford to buy a box of popcorn let alone take the entire family to a movie. And, even though the city is still paying off a $50 Million deficit, they want to spend another $35 Million+ on this project.

    1. We go to the movies MAYBE twice a year. That includes dinner and drinks and sometimes shopping. Ralph wants to see many, many movies and I just roll my eyes…
      If there was a theater so close by, I’m sure I’d be seeing more along with rolling my eyes before and after…The poor service at TGIF’s Compton has made it out of the question for dinner and cocktails…If sales tax increases, shopping in Compton is going to become a lazy luxury (for us, anyway.) Less travel time means less time leaving the property and pets unattended…Lots of things to consider here, but I do think people will use the theater.
