Tinseltown Food Inspection

I happened to be looking at the restaraunt inspections and was shocked to see that Tinseltown Theater score a 50, yes a 50.

Article 18 cites the following:

18. Additional cleaning needed of EVERY SURFACE inside and out of
EVERYTHING! Everything sticky, dirty, covered in grime and rodent feces.
Cleaning includes cash registers, cupboards, shelves in coolers, freezer and
bottoms of drawers and coolers and freezers. All hand washing sinks, paper
dispensers, and soap dispensers need cleaning. This should be at least daily
if not more often as needed. Remember to clean bag in boxes racks and
beverage dispenser and tubing. Remove all coolers oil spills throughout all
snack stations.

Article 32:
32. a) Need to clean all floors under all equipment and shelves. Ensure to get
the corners to remove ALL RODENT FECES. Mop to remove ALL
RODENT URINE. Warning Notice issued.; b) replace all broken floor tile.;
c) Clean all walls to remove grime and dried on food spills.; d) Paint all
walls as needed.; e) Repair all holes in walls from removed equipment -
(ladies restroom) and equipment hangers (nails, etc.).; f) Seal all other holes
in walls around equipment and in ceilings. g) Replace missing camera

rings around existing light. Gaps large enough for the rodents to get into
snack areas.; i) Seal around all pipes and tubing - above ice maker in main
snack and around all plumbing pipes.; j) Seal around ceiling around money

Article 37:
37. Rodent feces found throughout all food service areas. rodent problem
will not go away until the theater is: 1) Kept clean; 2) All means for entry
are closed off - holes filled in proper weather stripping of all doors; 3) No
areas for the rodents to hide and live; 4) No sources of water.

You should read the rest. Highlight and copy this link to read the report.


That place is disgusting and I hope that they were shut down. If not, I would like to know what does it take?

Think about that the next time you get your buttered popcorn.

My main concern would be if Tinseltown's parent company is going to let that thing fall apart. If you really want to make a difference get ahold of corporate communications and send them the report.

My guess is that management will be completely turned over before you can drive to the newer, nicer theater in Newnan. Especially if you take Hwy. 54!

People have to be pretty dumb to go to such things as a stinking movie house in this day and time anyway, what with all the diseases your kids can catch. Even restaurants are beginning to take on the tinge of foreign restaurants--dirty doors, windows, counters, walls, and waiters with no teeth nor money to buy any. Besides, the movies are absolutely horrible and counter-productive. Do your knitting and scout work instead. Or drive to Newnan theater---it will only take a total of three hours driving.

Do you have a positive outlook on anything? I have seen you post numerous times and always a negative post with subtle or even not so subtle, conspiracy theories.

Maybe you should get out of your house every once in a while and see the world for a change. In fact, maybe you should take in a movie, just don't eat the buttered popcorn.

Yes, I have. On all things going right. Why brag about them? Correct the dumbasses. The latest one is the "Mission Accomplished" signs hanging over some gas price signs, reading "$3.00 per gallon for high test and diesel fuel. I'm sick of the so-called "positive thinkers" when they know they are BSing.

How can you mess up a box of candy?

What should we make of the restaurants that don't even have reports listed? I don't see City Cafe, for instance.

Visit their owner company's website and file a complaint:


If enough people do it, you'll be amazed how quickly they'll clean up!

I just filed one with them, curious if I will even get a response.

I have never been so disgusted before in a public establishment for its lack of cleanliness. Until today, I never understood why the bathrooms in a new facility like Tinseltown always had a bad odor, even after they had been open for only 6 months.

As you suggested, I have filed my complaint with the Corporate Headquarters and included a link to the report and some comments. I'm passing the report along to others I know to do the same. Shame on Tinseltown. What a poor example of a corporate "citizen".

I just did the same. I put excerpts from the report in so that corporate can see what the citations were.

Just from the surface it sounds like they should be looking for a new manager. He had to be aware of the rodent problem and failed to take corrective action.

Anyone that works for the Health Department, can you answer what the minimum score is before you shut down a facility?

Thanks for the info. I knew I had the Blockbuster card for a reason.
Do you or anyone else know how low this score can go before a place like this will be shut down?

Submitted by dkinser on Wed, 03/29/2006 - 3:38pm.

I don't know what the low score is, but I would certainly hope that after reading this inspection report that the theater's food service was shut down.

If not, I'd hate to see how low it must go to get shut down.

By the way, follow this link and you can check the inspection reports on all Fayette County restaraunt's scores.


Most that I've checked on were actually very good.
